Four of the most famous, beautiful women in the world – plus Andy Samberg – are planning on making a movie with the creator of Glee. Ryan Murphy, who also created American Horror Story and directed Eat Pray Love, is set to co-write and direct a film called One Hit Wonders for Sony which will team Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz and Beyonce in a film about pop singers of the ’90s who come back today to form a supergroup.

Ryan Murphy is best known as the co-creator of such unusual TV hits as Glee, American Horror Story, and Nip/Tuck, but he’s slowly been building up a big-screen career as well. Though 2006′s Running with Scissors wasn’t quite a box office smash, 2010′s Eat Pray Love pulled in $200 million worldwide despite mediocre reviews.

Murphy is now gearing up for his third feature, the HIV/AIDS drama The Normal Heart. Mark Ruffalo boarded the project a couple of years ago and was the only star attached for a while, but the project’s now landed four more high-profile stars in Julia Roberts, Alec Baldwin, Matt Bomer, and Jim Parsons, and is said to be eyeing Viggo Mortensen as well.

FX’s American Horror Story won’t debut until next week, but it’s already been getting some intriguing buzz. The premise sounds normal enough: Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Taissa Farmiga star as the Harmon family, who relocate from Boston to a haunted house in Los Angeles; Jessica Lange plays their neighbor. However, early reviews have indicated that it’s outrageously over-the-top and very, very weird in its execution. Which, actually, shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing as it comes from the minds of Glee and Nip/Tuck creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck.

After the jump, check out the first five minutes of the show. It looks like pretty standard horror movie stuff here, but Murphy, who directed the pilot, does a fine job of setting up an eerie mood.

Glee may be getting a high-profile guest star next season. Anne Hathaway first expressed her desire to come on the show last fall, and show creator Ryan Murphy confirmed to press this past January that he planned to have the actress on the show, possibly in the role of Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) lesbian aunt. However, several months later, Hathaway’s still waiting for the call from Murphy, so she decided to call Murphy out on a recent interview. Hathaway recounted the story to Buzz Sugar:

Ryan Murphy goes, “Anne Hathaway! Come on Glee.” And I said, “Yes!” and he said “Fab, I’ll call you.” He went back to the press room and said, “Anne Hathaway is going to be on the show.” And I never heard from him again. Ryan Murphy, I’m calling you out: I want to be on Glee. I’ve got my songs picked out.

I’ve got my fingers crossed that at least one of those tunes is a rap song — I wouldn’t want her skills, as recently demonstrated on Conan, to go to waste. [Vulture]

After the jump, Fox grabs a drama by Fight Club writer Jim Uhls, and the kid who played Bobby Draper on Mad Men gets amusingly frank about his former TV mom.

Last week, we reported on an as-yet-untitled documentary about South Park that would be airing on Comedy Central October 2, days ahead of the show’s October 5 return. We now have a bit more detail on what, exactly, the special will be about. According to Playbill (via Collider), the documentary will be:

an all-access pass to the behind-the-scenes world of creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone at South Park Studios in Los Angeles through this special documentary, providing an exclusive, insiders look into the making of a ‘South Park’ episode.

The documentary is apparently part of a year-long celebration of the series to mark its 15th anniversary. Other components of the celebration include the “South Park Fan Experience” at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, a traveling exhibit curated by artist Ron English, and limited-edition South Park-branded merchandise.

After the jump, lots of TV marketing: posters for Boardwalk Empire and Person of Interest, plus a poster and an intriguingly creepy teaser for American Horror Story.
