‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Movie To Be Released In 2014

Fifty Shades of Grey movie

The Fifty Shades Of Grey movie could be released as early as next summer, says the chairman of Universal Pictures.

The trio of novels, which look at the sexual relationship between the businessman Christian Grey and the college graduate Anastasia Steele, have sold over 65 million copies across the globe. The British author of these books, EL James, sold the rights to Universal Pictures and Focus Features in March 2012.

Kelly Marcel, the writer behind the television series, Terra Nova, was hired in October 2012 to scribe the script; however, there has still be no casting or production decisions announced.

Adam Fogelson, the chairman of Universal Pictures, told The Hollywood Reporter, “I don’t believe that [EL James] had any interest in going to studio where rushing it into production was the vision. I don’t believe that the second or third film would have benefited from that strategy. And I think that there are totally legitimate questions about what this book is as a movie.”

Fogelson also confirmed that the film is one of the studios main projects, stating, “I will tell you that it is an absolute priority for us. It’s conceivable that we could be ready to release it as early as next summer.”

The casting rumors for the film have continued to circulate with the likes of Mila Kunis, Emma Watson, and Krysten Ritter linked to the role of Anastasia Steele, whilst Henry Cavill, Ryan Gosling, and Channing Tatum have been linked with Christian Grey.

    I do not want Emma Watson playing in 50 Shades! She does not fit anyone in the books! They need Kristen Stewart!

    Ryan Gosling for Christian and Krysten Ritter as Anastacia.

    I think Mila would be a good choice..not sure if Kristen Stewart is pretty enough. Ryan Gosling has always been my (and the entire hair salon group) first choice! He fits it to a T.

    He looks older. And this guy is suppose to be drop dead handsome. I love Ryan Gosling, He's hot but just not stop you in your tracks hot < in my humble opinion>

    Ian Somerhalder for Christian! Can't picture anyone else LOL.

  14. Carol Allen Young

    Henry Cavill will be 30 this year. He IS drop dead gorgeous. So Is Matt Bomer but since some women have a problem with him being gay…they can't see him playing the role. Wouldn't bother me :-)

  15. Renelle Murphy

    There is no actor I can think of that could possibly play the role of Christian Grey….Just sayn ladies….This will be interesting….

    I can't wait to see how they pull this off. It will either soar high, or sink faster then the Titanic. (The ship, not the film.) Biggest struggle will be the NC-17 rating it will receive. (It will get a NC-17 rating, cause the script writers already said that that rating was their goal.) Also… Casting for Anna or Christian, no idea. Elena Lincoln (aka Mrs. Robinson): Michelle Pfeiffer. Carrick Grey: Harrison Ford. Johnathon Flynn: David Tennant. Mia: Mila Kunis. Grace Trevelyan Grey: Jamie Lee Curtis.

    No wish they werent making this into a movie at all. What a way to ruin the books.

  18. Dori Milner

    Jensen Ackles from Supernatural for Christian and Alexandra Daddario for Anastasia. Look her up, she's beautiful and those lips and blue eyes are perfect. Jensen is just plain HOT! Maybe Blake Lively for Kate?

  19. Matt West

    I think if they are going to make it into a movie then L.james needs to finish writing the last book. It left me hanging you can't make a move with loose ends it just pisses people off. Don't get me wrong here I LOVE her books I read them from cover to cover and it was great but the ending needs some work stop skipping over things why do people do that when they write? Anyway I don't care who plays it because the man in my head is not real lol you can't copy fake lol. I do hope there is a movie an it should be everything the book is that's why we have 18A ratings so we don't let our children watch it! Good luck Hollywood on making this a great movie I just hope you don't screw it up like you do with most films that follow books.

    Matt Bomer! He may be older but could pull it off! No reason he can't play the part. they have said he can't play it because he is openly gay. So what! That's why it is called "acting" people! Anyone remember Rock Hudson? He had ome pretty steamy love scenes

  21. Christina Combs

    Can't wait for the movie , I just wish they hurry up and pick the cast and get it together – waiting sucks!!! I'm so ready to see this movie when it comes out – I believe it will be a big deal, come on and hurry up & get it together already;))

  22. Judy Quigley

    I think CHANNING TATUM is perfect for the role of christian! And ANN HATHAWAY for the role of Anastasia! OR CHRIS HEMSWORTH as the role of christian and EVE MENDEZ for the role of anastasia! And or RYAN GOSLING for the role as christian and for the role KRISTEN STEWART as Anastasia! Either one of the actors and actress for the role of Anastasia and Christian would be perfect.

  23. Kaitlyn N Neider

    Ian Somerhalder for Christian Grey!!!!!!!!!! He is perfect for the part!

  24. Sandhya Higgins

    Anyone but Channing Tatum..yuck. He has no depth.

  25. Tami Branch

    ian somerhalder for the part of Christian grey most definitely!

  26. Karla Miller Alexander

    Matt Bomer hands down most talented, handsome, and the only Christian!
