Potential Ryan Murphy film could star Paltrow, Diaz, Beyonce

Potential Ryan Murphy film could star Paltrow, Diaz, Beyonce

Ryan Murphy looks to have a feature film trick up his sleeve, one that would put together plenty of star power.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Murphy's kicking around a musical comedy concept called "One Hit Wonders" with Sony. The movie would focus on three pop stars who hit it big in the '90s only to find their careers fading just as quickly as they became popular.

Instead of staying down and out, the three form a pop super-group - and it looks like Murphy wants Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon to fill those roles. He'd also find ways to use Andy Samberg and Beyonce in the cast, although their roles aren't specified.

This is all super-preliminary anyway, as the project isn't a done deal for anyone, nor is there a script. However, should the movie get made, Murphy would write it with his "Glee" counterparts Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuk.

Megan Fox: I'd rather be in a bad movie with good people

When choosing roles, it sounds like Megan Fox pays just as much attention to her potential co-workers as she does to the offered part.

"I'd rather be with good people in a bad movie than the other way around," the 25-year-old tells Manhattan magazine. Hopefully, the upcoming "Friends with Kids" will show that Fox was able to have a good movie and cool co-workers, too.

"Most of the cast knew each other very well already," she said of working with Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jon Hamm and his partner, Jennifer Westfeldt. "It was such a nice, welcoming, supportive environment."

Julia Roberts: What Meryl Streep's daughter taught me

Julia Roberts, as one of Hollywood's most famous moms, has learned a thing or two from the offspring of one of the pros: Meryl Streep.

Streep, 62, is mom to 25-year-old actress Grace Gummer, who was in last year's "Larry Crowne," and Roberts tells Vanity Fair in its April issue that Grace gave her a new perspective on what it means to have a parent in the limelight.

"Grace comes up and goes, 'Gosh, it's so sweet seeing all your kids on the set. It reminds me of when I was little, and I would go see my mom work," Roberts, who's a mom of three, recalls to VF.

Elizabeth Olsen's big fear? Water - thanks to 'Jaws'

Elizabeth Olsen's upcoming thriller "Silent House," about a young woman (Olsen) who becomes trapped in her family's summer home, sounds plenty scary, and Olsen admits that filming it freaked her out a bit.

"It took a long time to wind down from this movie," Olsen said. "It was a lot," noting the fact that the movie is presented in real time, made to look like one continuous shot, which heightens the tension.

"It’s just a whole new way of watching an event," Olsen said. "It’s exciting to figure out how all of this fear and terror can happen in real time without any [obvious] camera tricks."
