Ryan Murphy, the writer and producer of Glee, Nip/Tuck, and American Horror Story is developing a movie at Sony Pictures called One Hit Wonders. The studio made a seven figure deal with Murphy to develop the film, described as a musical comedy that he'll build around Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Beyonce, and Andy Samberg. Murphy will also direct the movie from a story he hatched with Paltrow, Witherspoon, and Diaz. Apparently they've all been looking to do a project together, and this is the one they decided on.
According to Deadline, "Paltrow, Witherspoon and Diaz will play three singers who each scored a top hit song in the 1990s before watching their careers go down the drain. They decide to form a super group. Samberg and his Lonely Island cohorts will be involved in generating music for the film."
Glee's Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan will co-write the script with Murphy, who will also produce along with Paltrow. Murphy is looking to direct the movie after he completes another project he's working on called The Normal Heart.
I enjoy watching the TV shows that Murphy has worked on over the years, but I have no idea what to expect from this. I guess if it turns out to be as entertaining as most of his shows, then it could be something to look forward to. What is your favorite TV series that Murphy has worked on, and what are your thoughts on this movie he's going to make?
