Gwyneth Paltrow has recently made a mark on the music industry with last year’s Country Strong and her many appearances on Glee. Now, Ryan Murphy, the man behind Glee, says he is working on a musical that will star Gwyneth herself.
We want to do a musical together,” Ryan said. “An original “ I want to write an original movie for Gwyneth and Maya Rudolph, both of whom I’m great friends with. That’s all I will say.
This prospect of Gwyneth and Ryan working together has most people excited, but I’m a tad bit more skeptical. I have yet to see Country Strong, but I do think Gwyn did a great job singing live at the CMT awards last year. As for her role on Glee during the second season¦ I wasn’t as impressed. But I seem to be part of a small population of people who feel that way. It would be quite interesting to see Gywneth in a movie with Maya Rudolph, however. With two very different acting styles, it would definitely make for something worth watching.
“I loved Gwyneth in Country Strong and love it when she`s drunk and on the floor spitting up pills,” Murphy said.
Ryan has worked with Gwyneth on a big screen before. Back in 2006, Ryan directed Gwyn in Running with Scissors, a film adapted from Augusten Burrough’s memoir.
