Bret Easton Ellis Wants To Write Adaptation For 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie
A few weeks back I made a pledge: No more writing about Fifty Shades of Grey. I'm tired of hearing about it. Then this happened, and I had to break my vow: Bret Easton Ellis is making a push to write the movie adaptation (the rights were won by Universal Pictures and Focus Features). Ellis has been tweeting about it, and insists that he has his agent on the case.
He also wants David Cronenberg to direct. And he wants Alexander Skarsgård for the role of Christian and Lena Dunham for the role of Anastasia. He has some other ideas about casting, which you can read here.
So. There's no chance this is going to happen. The studios will deem Ellis too extreme and balk, and the chances of lining up Cronenberg, I mean, c'mon.
But. If the stars were to align and this were to happen? I would see this movie. I don't think I would have a choice. How could you not see this movie?
