It’s a cinematic dream come true. Superstar singer Beyonce and her best gal-pal, the Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, are currently in talks to do a movie together. And it’s going to involve them both singing!
Deadline reports that the Knowles and Paltrow, who hang out together (with and without their music world heavyweight husbands Jay-Z and Chris Martin) are attached to a movie Sony is producing with Glee creator Ryan Murphy. The working title is One Hit Wonders, and the plot goes something like this: Beyonce, Gwyneth and Cameron Diaz will play women who each had a single hit song in the 90s who band together in the present day to form a super group of lady singers who will take over the world with their voices. (Andy Samberg and the boys from The Lonely Island will be producing the music for the movie, but we can’t imagine Martin and Jay-Z and basically everyone in the industry won’t be involved in this movie somehow.)
Anyway! We also know that Reese Witherspoon will also be involved with the film somehow. Apparently Paltrow, Witherspoon, Diaz and Murphy were all having dinner in New York one night and discussed the idea of working together between courses. A few formal meetings and several millions of dollars later, and bam! We’ve got an ensemble cast and some serious musicians on their way to the movies.
Since the project is in its infancy, there aren’t many more details than that right now — and of course since there’s very little on paper, the scant details we do have are subject to change. But we’re hoping that at the end of the day, Gwyneth and B will end up sticking together. Because at the moment, we honestly can’t imagine two people we’d rather see working together.
