Ryan Murphy is having a very good year. His smash-hit Fox series Glee is currently enjoying its third season, his horror anthology series American Horror Story broke ratings records on FX, and just yesterday we reported an impressive cast featuring Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, and Alec Baldwin will star in his next feature directorial effort The Normal Heart. Now, Variety reports that Murphy is set to pen an untitled sci-fi/horror project for Sony Pictures with Apollo 18 scribe Brian Miller.
Absolutely no details regarding the project are given beyond the fact that it’s a sci-fi/horror movie, and it’s not clear if Murphy will also direct. Apollo 18 didn’t exactly break box office records, and critical reception was lackluster, so this isn’t exactly the most exciting news ever. Murphy has a knack for coming up with fantastic concepts, but his execution is incredibly hit-or-miss. That said, hopefully we’re in for at least a cool concept. Production on The Normal Heart is set to begin this summer, and Variety’s report notes that Murphy’s eyeing Viggo Mortensen for a role in the pic, which is based on the Tony Award-winning play of the same name.
