Glee creator Ryan Murphy is looking to assemble a dream team of leading ladies to create what could be the mother of all movie musicals.
Deadline, The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly are all reporting that Murphy is in talks with Sony to make the musical comedy One Hit Wonders, with Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce attached -- but not yet officially signed -- to star.
The film would center around Diaz, Witherspoon and Paltrow as three singers from the '90s who each had one smash hit, and try to reclaim their fame by forming a girl group.
Beyonce and SNL funnyman Andy Samberg are also set to join the cast in unspecified roles. And Samberg's quirky (and hilarious) band The Lonely Island may even contribute original music for the soundtrack.
Beyonce, Paltrow, Witherspoon and Diaz are no strangers to singing on the big screen. Beyonce wowed audiences in Dreamgirls, Paltrow showed her stuff in Country Strong and Duets (as well as on Glee), Witherspoon sang in Walk The Line and Diaz belted out "I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself" in My Best Friend's Wedding (though we wouldn't exactly call Cam's rendition "melodic").
As of right now, these four actresses and Samberg are attached to the project, but have not officially inked deals. Of course, we're crossing our fingers that the movie gets the green light and they do sign on -- they'd certainly make beautiful music together.
