Gwyneth Paltrow and Ryan Murphy to make music on the big screen?

Nothing has been confirmed yet, there is no script, and no contracts have been signed, but if Ryan Murphy’s comments on the Emmys’ Red Carpet are anything to go by, it looks like Gwyneth Paltrow may star in his big screen musical.

Murphy told E!’s Marc Malkin that “We want to do a musical together… An original – I want to write an original movie for Gwyneth and Maya Rudolph, both of whom I’m great friends with”

Besides appearing in GLEE, Paltrow worked with Murphy 5 years ago when he directed her in Running With Scissors.

I know at the moment, this is a nothing story but I can’t help but get a little excited. See I love musicals and despair that so few get made. And of the ones that do get made, they are terrible – case in point, Nine. The cast was phenomenal. The sets and camera work were  beautiful, but the movie was a bitter disappointment.

The last musical I enjoyed was Baz Luhrman’s Moulin Rouge which was released in 2001. 10 years is too long to wait for a good musical, so please Mr Murphy put us out of our misery and make this happen, and please let it be as fab as season 1 of Glee was!

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
