Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Release Date: Summer 2014!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is reportedly set for a summer release.

Summer of 2014, but hey, what can you do. Let the anticipation build!

Adam Fogelson, Chairman of Universal Pictures, says the studio has "prioritized" the film and wants to have it in theaters as "early" as summer 2014.

"I understand why some people might take that point of view that the film won't be here soon enough," the movie exec said, explaining the timetable."

"But I don’t believe that EL James had any interest in rushing it into production. I don’t believe that the second or third film would have benefited from that strategy."

Also, he adds, "I think that there are totally legitimate questions about what this book is as a movie. I will tell you that it is an absolute priority for us."

"It’s conceivable it could be ready for release as early as next summer."

Obviously you can only fast track something like this so much. It's part love story, part romantic thriller, part cheesy Twilight fan fiction, part soft-core porn.

Not exactly an open-and-shut page-to-screen adaptation right there.

A quality film, whatever formula execs settle on, will undoubtedly set the Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed movies up to be even better.

So, better to just be patient. As for who should play Christian and Ana, EL James says she has some names in mind, though it's "not who you might expect."

If that means no Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, we are gonna be pissed. Just kidding. Well, mostly. We'd be open to her ideas, but a little pissed.

Will you see the Fifty Shades of Grey movie?

Should it be rated NC-17?

I would really love to see Ian Somerhalder in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie as Mr. Grey. I have heard that his character as Damon on VD is too close to that of Mr. Grey but I think that is what makes him a perfect candidate. It is not the fact that vampires are seductive or that it would hinder the Mr. Grey character making him seem boring or old in comparison, it is about the actor and his talents, Ian Somerhalder has the look, the talent, and charismatic charm needed to make the role that much more interesting and seductive for the audience, Casting him to play Mr. Grey would make the movie alluring seductive and dark. The book started out sexy and dark and I have watched both possibilities of Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder. Matt is a great actor but he doesn't have that dark man seductiveness that Ian carries. either way I am seeing the movie I just wanted to put my vote for Ian Somerhalder out there. Thanks!

I imagined Christian with longer hair and more on the strawberry blond type. Can't wait to see the movies. I enjoyed the books, hopefully the movies will be faithful to the books as the Twilight saga were.

Matt Bomer should take the position wen I'd saw the trailer of this movie I just smiled coz it was exactly as I'd picture it. I can't wait to watch the movie. I hope the release of 50shades darker aswell as Freed doesn't take this long too.. Anticipation is building up to watch it.

I think at 15 if you have curiosities of that nature that you should reach out to someone you can trust to talk to about it, or talk with your parents and if they allowed you to read the books then no one has the right to judge. If it were my child I would be open about the subject but also guide them to make safe decisions as well because we are here to protect our kids but if you shelter them they will never learn to ake decisions on their own or learn from mistakes. Good luck hun and I hope everything works out for ya.

I won't bother to watch this movie unless Matt Bomer is Christian Grey, and Alexis Bleidel plays Anastasia Steele...

Channing tatum needs to be cast as Christian grey!!! He's sexy domineering and definitely the perfect man for that role.

I agree with Matt Bommer as Christian Grey. His physical features closely resembles the description in the book. I'm looking firsts to the movie.
