Ryan Murphy Was SHOOK Over Disney Buying Fox Studios: "It"s A Very Emotional Thing For Me"

Ryan Murphy has been dealing with his own private American Horror Story after Disney made a deal to acquire 20th Century Fox. The mega-producer admitted he's been "very emotional" amid the Fox-Disney deal, but will wait and see how the dust settles before deciding if he wants to take his powerhouse production company elsewhere. Related: Kendrick Lamar [...] Ryan Murphy has been dealing with his own private American Horror Story after Disney made a deal to acquire 20th Century Fox. The mega-producer admitted he's been "very emotional" amid the Fox-Disney deal, but will wait and see how the dust settles before deciding if he wants to take his powerhouse production company elsewhere. Related: Kendrick Lamar Drops First Song From Black Panther Soundtrack! He said at the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday: "It's a very emotional thing for me. Three months ago, I thought I would literally be buried on the Fox lot. I had my mausoleum picked out. I grew up there. So I was very unprepared for what happened." Murphy's production company has been at Fox Studios for almost 15 years, where he has grown hit shows for both FOX and FX. So, he was understandably shaken up after his studio home was now suddenly part of the gargantuan Mouse House. Long past his Glee period, Murphy was worried he would be forced to Disnify his decidedly non-family friendly work. But a call with Disney boss Bob Iger reassured the writer he had nothing to worry about. He recalled: "I got a called from Mr. Iger, and I said point-blank that what I do is not specifically Disney, and I'm not interested in that and I'm concerned about that. I'm like, ‘Do I have to put Mickey Mouse in ‘American Horror Story' now?'" The "very sweet and transparent" Iger assured Murphy that Disney is all about preserving the properties of the studios it acquires, and only intends to use its resources to make them better. Related: Deadpool Will Stay R-Rated At Disney! Now rest-assured, Murphy is excited to see what good things come from this new deal. He concluded: "I think that Mr. Iger has done an incredible job of taking communities and keeping those families in tact. Like Pixar, like Marvel. So I'm sort of interested to see what that company will look like before I make any decisions about where I'm going to go... I was surprised, but I'm very hopeful." Exactly. Disney doesn't want to change you, Murph. It wants you to stay exactly the way you are... so you can make poppa Mickey more dough! [Image via Apega/WENN.].....»»
