After the long wait, the Fifty Shades of Grey movie was finally in the works. Universal Pictures and Focus Features officially announced the project. In addition, the task of writing the controversial script is given to the British actress Kelly Marcel. She was previously the pilot episode writer for the Terra Nova TV series. Other than that, Marcel also wrote the script of Saving Mr. Banks, which is an upcoming Walt Disney biopic.
To state a fact, fans are hoping that the movie version will not disappoint. Moreover, this will create a media storm for the probable mixed reviews. For those who were yet to know, the movie project is based on the erotic novel trilogy of Erika Leonard who uses E.L. James as a pseudonym. Her novel trilogy has sold more than 30 million copies all over the world. In addition, the trilogy has beaten the Harry Potter series as the fastest selling paperback. The rights of the novels were already sold to 37 countries. This proves its success, which catapulted Fifty Shades as a bestseller. The story revolves around two characters, namely Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Either Ryan Gosling or Aaron Johnson already nabbed the male title role according ongoing hearsays. Other than that, some say that Angelina Jolie is set to direct the film. Those who would like to watch the film should be informed that it is not a typical romantic story. To provide an insight, the readers are introduced to the two characters early on in the novel. The story would tackle bondage, discipline, sadism and masochistic (BDSM) themes. Those who are curious about the plot should read the story for some enlightenment. However, as a simple spoiler, they would know early on that Anastacia is a young virgin while Christian is a brooding yet charismatic billionaire who has a fetish for sexual adventure.
The contrasting dispositions of the two will surely ignite a fiery difference that has titillated the imagination of the readers. This is one of the main reasons on why the production of the said movie is making a fuss amongst fans. Not to mention that it would be exciting if the fans were provided with some clues regarding the actor who will play the role of Christian Grey.
