If you thought Beyonce was slowing down after the birth of her baby Blue Ivy, think again.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the singer-turned-actress has just signed on to star in a new film with her bestie Gwyneth Paltrow. The film, tentatively titled One Hit Wonders, is about three washed-up singers who had a few hits in the ’90s, but have since fallen off. The three unite to form a group and take another stab at stardom.

Although it’s not clear what role Beyonce will play, the film will also reportedly star Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon, who will play the members of the singing group, and is being written by Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy.

Sound interesting?

    Well, technically she isn’t taking her ‘talents’ to the big screen. She has already been in a movie, which her acting was EXTREMELY horrible.

    She CANNOT act at all and no I’m not hating

  • Mimi

    Oh sweet baby Jesus say it ain’t so!!!! Her acting is so horrible that its actually laughable. One of my boyfriend and I’s favorite things to do is act out scenes from Obsessed, but we act them out bad like she does! It always cracks us up.

    Obviously this chick doesn’t have real friends who will tell her to take more acting lessons before further embarrasing yourself. And if the acting lessons don’t work, just come to the realization that you can’t do everything and certain things aren’t meant for you. Her acting skills are laughable and embarassing to watch.

  • I got sense!

    Agreed! God gave everybody talents but not all the talents. If you are a singer, then sing. If you are an actor/actress then act but no crossing over. It doesn’t often work.

    Aside from Beyonce’s sub par acting skills, the plot doesn’t pique my interest.

  • CaramelBeauty

    No, not interesting. A white girl group? Eh!

    “Although it’s not clear what role Beyonce will play, the film will also reportedly star Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon, who will play the members of the singing group, and is being written by Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy.”

    Just by the mere mentions of the names Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Murphy, this automatically screams ‘chick flick’!!!

    “Although it’s not clear what role Beyonce will play, the film will also reportedly star Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon, who will play the members of the singing group, and is being written by Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy.”

    She will play her usual role the lead singer that will carry the group except none of the actresses mentioned can sing so no one will be salty, Anyway this all sounds wack because it is yet another movie about her singing which is what she does for a living when will she be challenged to play something or someone other than her this is why she did not win the Oscar for Dream girls because she played herself like she does in most movies with the exception of Goldmember and obsessed which was just bad because of the acting. And I still for the life of me can’t see why she was so giddy about Dream Girls considering the amount of times Destiney’s child has been compared to the supremes and her role in that film was very uninspiring although she thought is was it’s like someone wanting to play her in a DC Biopic clearly whomever plays Latoya and Latavia would have the more heart wrenching role that is more likely to move the audience given it is done properly so I just don’t see how she thought Deena Jones was Oscar worthy to began with hell Anika Noni Rose was more deserving. No shade I like Beyonce and think she one of the best entertainers out but she is not an actress and them throwing her in all these musicals are merely a cover up for where she is truly lacking theatrically and all we end up with is more Deena Jones. I will say I love her in Cadillac records although I can name a hand full of more qualified actresses who could have played Etta I still think Beyonce did well in that film.

    I’m sorry but the idea seems insipid!!!

    And i’ve also noted the tendency in Hollywood and network TV to try and define for us the “diverse cast” as being one containing exclusively white actors and one black cast for good measure.
    It still amounts to cultural eradication.
    It still amounts to warping of the cultural reality that is the US.

    This cast, like most coming out of Hollywood, is pitiful at best..come again..

  • Tonton Michel

    Of course it does.

  • binks

    Honestly it sounds like a lifetime movie…not interested

  • Bunny

    GOD, wtf is up with her being BFF with Goopy Paltrow? I mean, I know two celebrities can be friends but…ugh. There’s just something so bizarre about them. Their personalities don’t even seem the least bit similar.

  • girlformerlyknownasgrace

    I don’t think they are BFFs, per se. Paltrow did not even know Beyonce was pregnant until she found out through the news. I think they are more like acquaintances, but the media hypes it up like they hang out every day or something. Celebrities are rarely ever ‘friends’ in the real sense.

  • Joan

    Guess I’m in the minority, but it sounds like fun to me. It sounds light hearted, cute and positive…sometimes I need a break from serious movies. I don’t think I’d pay to see it in the movie theater, but I’d definitely check it out on Netflix or one of the stations.

  • Kanyade

    It sounds like chick-flick meets musical, both of which are doing well in movies and TV. I’ll pass but I’m sure her younger fans (and the fans of the other women) will enjoy it.
