Paltrow, Beyonce, Diaz & Others 'One Hit Wonders' for Ryan Murphy
Though the musical TV series "Glee" from Ryan Murphy started out with a bang, lately only the musical numbers have kept my interest because of an inconsistent quality of writing in each episode. However, whenever Murphy himself is heavily involved, all is well. That's why I'm absolutely stoked to hear news from Deadline that Sony Pictures is working with Murphy on a musical comedy called One Hit Wonders. Aside from the fact that a straight-up musical comedy doesn't come along often, the project is being written as a vehicle for Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Beyonce and Andy Samberg.
The film follows Paltrow (who is also producing for the first time), Witherspoon and Diaz as three singers who each had one hit song in the 90's before their careers went down the drain, and now they decide to form a super group. Now if that doesn't excite you already, then maybe you're not a musical fan. But if you're a comedy fan, then how about hearing that Samberg along with his cohorts Jorma Taccone and Akiva Shaffer (the three make up the comedy rap group The Lonely Island responsible for such viral hits as Dick in a Box, I'm on a Boat and Jizz in My Pants) will be responsible for getting the music together for the film.
Amy Pascal, who produced Murphy's effort to adapt Eat Pray Love, was completely sold on the pitch in just ten minutes. Deals are currently being finalized with Murphy attached to direct (after he finishes shooting The Normal Heart with Mark Ruffalo), and he'll also write the script with "Glee" collaborators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. While I knock "Glee" for its poor writing, remember that when Murphy scripts or directs an episode himself, it reminds fans why they started writing in the first place. Honestly, this project sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun, and I cannot wait to see how it turns out.

actors that sing, singers that act, the cross over really urks me. When they do both good like Jamie fox, justin timberlake-sorry can't really think of a woman at the moment-anyway there are few that do both well enough to have two actual career separate from each other, its when everyone thinks they can follow along, and some don't do either well. I know I heard Paltrow sing before but it left little impression on me. It's all a bit besides the point, if it's meant to be funny then I'm down. I can tolerate a helluva lot when it's funny
