Ryan Murphy plans musical with Beyoncé, Cameron, Gwyneth, and Reese

The Advocate reports: Beyoncé, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Reese Witherspoon will team for a Ryan Murphy–directed musical comedy titled One Hit Wonders, reports Deadline's Mike Fleming.

Diaz, Paltrow, and Witherspoon will portray singers who each scored a hit song in the 1990s before their careers unraveled and who decide to join together to form a supergroup. According to Fleming, the idea was developed during a dinner that Murphy hosted at a restaurant in Los Angeles.

"They wanted to do something fun together, and kicked around ideas until they settled on One Hit Wonders," he writes.

There's no information on the role Beyoncé will play, but Andy Samberg and his musical side project Lonely Island will help provide music for the film. Murphy will write the screenplay with Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan; all collaborate on Glee.
