The Fifty Shades of Grey movie announced a key player today.

Marcel was the creator of Terra Nova and penned the new Disney film Saving Mr. Banks, which stars Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson and Colin Farrell.

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie offers quite a departure from that in terms of subject matter, but producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti lauded her abilities.

"Kelly's work demonstrates her flawless structural technique and passionate commitment to emotion, humor and depth of character," De Luca said in a press release.

Brunetti adds, "We were all taken with the depth and passion of Kelley's engagement with the characters and world E.L. James created ... we knew she was the right person."

Speculation over who the right person is for the lead, billionaire character and his young female paramour has run rampant online for months on end.

Just a few of those recently rumored for the respective, racy roles: Ryan Gosling, Lucy Hale, Emma Watson, Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel. None have been cast ... yet.
