Ryan Murphy has plenty of experience with musical comedy as the creator of Glee, and now he’s joining forces with Sony Pictures for a musical called One Hit Wonders, which Deadline reports has Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Beyoncé Knowles, and Andy Samberg attached to star.
The film is about three singers (Paltrow, Witherspoon, and Diaz), who each had hit singles in the 1990s, although their careers fizzled shortly thereafter. They decide to jump-start their careers once more by combining to form a super group. No character details were given for Beyoncé Knowles and Andy Samberg’s parts, although Samberg will be involved in generating the music for the movie with his Lonely Island cohorts.
Ryan Murphy will direct One Hit Wonders from a script he is co-writing with his Glee collaborators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. Murphy wants to start production on One Hit Wonders after he wraps on his next project, The Normal Heart, which is due to shoot this spring.
