The topics and casting of each season of Ryan Murphy’s numerous successful anthology series are almost as suspenseful as the plot lines themselves turn out to be.
And while discussing the theme of the next American Crime Story with The Hollywood Reporter, Murphy let slip a pretty exciting development in the cast of American Horror Story.
When it comes to Murphy’s other FX anthologies, he’s currently casting an eighth season of American Horror Story (and, in classic Murphy fashion, reveals he’s “throwing in Joan Collins” and is “interested” in Anjelica Huston)
Meanwhile, he’s still working on Crime Story to follow the just-finished Versace.
But there’s one story that’s already been optioned that he definitely won’t be telling right now: Monica Lewinsky’s White House sex scandal.
“I told her, ‘Nobody should tell your story but you, and it’s kind of gross if they do,’” Murphy recalls telling Lewinsky when he ran into her at a Hollywood party. “‘If you want to produce it with me, I would love that; but you should be the producer and you should make all the goddamn money.’”
And don’t forget about Feud! That may or may not be centering around Charles and Diana next season.
Meanwhile, Murphy is working on the New York vogue ballroom-centered Pose for FX as well as at least two new series for Netflix.
Where’s he going to keep all those Emmys?
