“Glee” creator and “Eat, Pray, Love” helmer has confirmed to MTV News that he’s set to direct the film adaptation of Larry Kramer’s semi-autobiographical play “The Normal Heart.”
Kramer adapted the script which focuses on the rise of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 80’s. Mark Ruffalo stars as the gay Jewish founder of a prominent HIV advocacy group who prefers loud and visible action over the quieter, less visible strategies advocated by his friends.
Murphy has also been rumoured to be involved in the film version of stage musical “Wicked”. Asked if he’d be interested, Murphy replied that he’d “‘never presume to say yes’ to such a question”.
