In recent years, rising French thespian Lea Seydoux has intermittently been crossing the Atlantic for Hollywood film roles, making appearances in “Inglourious Basterds,”Robin Hood,” “Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol” and “Midnight In Paris.” And while those films have only seen her play smaller supporting or cameo roles, it’s certainly brought attention to many of her films back in Europe including recent Berlin-opener “Farewell, My Queen” opposite Diane Kruger.

On the back of all that success, Seydoux has now joined Abdellatif Kechiche‘s “Blue Is A Hot Color,” an adaptation of Julie Maroh’s relationship-drama graphic novel “Blue” which will see her star opposite fellow up-and-comer Adèle Exarchopoulos for the story of a teenage girl who unexpectedly falls in love with another woman and faces her parents’ and friends’ judgment.

Instead, he went traveling around the world with Julia Roberts (who wouldn’t?!) in “Eat Pray Love,” and is developing the AIDS drama “The Normal Heart.” But it seems he hasn’t left big, gaudy numbers behind as he’s gearing up a star-studded musical to destroy your ears.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Beyoncé and Andy Samberg will star in “One Hit Wonders,” with the project already finding a home at Sony. Conceived over a dinner between Murphy, Paltrow, Witherspoon and Diaz, the story will find the three ladies playing singers who each had a big hit in the 1990s, before they fizzled out. They then decide to form a super group. No word on Beyoncé‘s role or Samberg’s, but the latter will work with his Lonely
