Fifty Shades of Grey Film Nabs a Screenwriter: Production Coming Along

by at . Comments

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is coming along nicely. Only problem is you won't really be able to watch it discreetly on your kindle. You'll have to buy a ticket.

The big-screen adaptation of the only thing anyone's been talking about for the last year now has a writer. This comes just a day after the erotic novel trilogy's author E.L. James hired The Social Network producers.

Jim Piddock will write the script for Fifty Shades of Grey. Piddock is an English writer and actor who you may recognize as Emily Blunt's father in The Five-Year Engagement. His writing credits include Tooth Fairy and The Man.

Now that Fifty has its producers and its writer, the production is sure to be fast-tracked to capitalize on the book's success. The biggest thing left is the cast.

Tons of names have been thrown around for the roles of Christian and Anastasia, and Ian Somerhalder really wants the part. Other names being thrown around include Robert Pattinson, Chris Hemsworth, and Bradley Cooper.

Do you think Somerhalder should star as Christian Grey?

ASHLEY GREENE should be considered for the role of Anastasia. As far as Christian MY PICK PAUL WALKER. Ian, while cute is too animated and the jawline is all wrong.

I think they should have two basically unknowns as Christian Grey and Annastasia Steele. Although Michael Fassbender has been in a recent movie, he has just the "edge" needed for Christian Grey..he is sooo handsome..and looks great in a suit..see movie, Freud and Jung. I don't know about Ana..should be an unknown..but not opposed to the youngest sister of the Olsen twins…a great little actress, and great figure..or Rose Byrne, or Anne Hathaway. Joe Mangienello has that sexiness, but is a brunette…but he would be great in this part too. Just the right look for a sexual seducer..

EXCUSE ME, KILL THEM DO I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION WITH ALL MY CAPS? YOUR COMMENTS ARE UNCALLED FOR AND HAVING A NAME LIKE KILL THEM, SAYS A LOT ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER. YOU MAY NOT LIKE THE STORY, BUT DON'T GET ON HERE AND START THREATENING PEOPLES LIVES, IF ANYONE IS DANGEROUS TO OUR SOCIETY ITS CLOSED-MINDED PEOPLE LIKE YOU. IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE BOOK THEN DON'T READ IT, DON'T COMMENT ON IT, FIND SOMETHING TO DO THAT YOU DO LIKE. YOU ARE NOT A DOCTOR, YOU ARE NOT A THERAPIST (THOUGH YOU MAY NEED ONE) AND SHOULD NOT MAKE ACCUSATIONS LIKE THE ONES YOU MADE ON HERE. WHAT AMAZES ME IS THAT THE ONES WHO HATE THE BOOKS ARE THE ONES CONSUMED BY THE NEWS ABOUT THE BOOK/MOVIES MORE THAN THE FANS ARE AND YOU COMMENT ON EVERY ARTICLE ABOUT THE BOOK/MOVIE. ITS PATHETIC AND YOU LOOK LIKE YOU ARE CRYING FOR SOME ATTENTION...YOU MAY GO AWAY NOW.

I so agree. If you don't like these books ALL CAPS people then don't read them. Stay home instead of watching the movie too.

Wow "kill them" strong opinion... As a female myself i don't believe they are promoting anything illegal at all!!! Some women enjoy playing risky in the bedroom and to each there own... i could understand if the character was forcing her to do what shes doing but hes not... and hey its just a book/movie!! get over it!! Its people like you that ruin things for others because they are "SO BAD" or "ILLEGAL" when in all actuality its not and if your a consenting adult you should be free to do as you please!!

These books were terrible!! All fluff , bad prose and childish inner dialogue. I don't even think a woman wrote it....not even real s&m!!!

If Hollywood aims to please, they should cast Ian Somerhalder ASAP.
