Fifty Shades is getting help from The Wolverine writer, Mark Bomback, to fine tune the script before production begins in December.
The film has overcome great obstacles including losing its main cast member, Charlie Hunnam, who is a script writer himself and departed from the project citing a scheduling conflict with his hit series Sons Of Anarchy shoot.
The shake-up was said to be related to Hunnam wanting some kind of creative input in the development of his character, the troubled billionaire Christian Grey.
Director Sam Taylor-Johnson wasn’t keen on her main star making script revisions, as was reported previously by The Inquisitr, Hunnam shared his notes with producers who initially welcomed the observations, however, later his revisions were not accepted and the actor left the project.
Now, with Irish actor and former Calvin Klein underwear model, Jamie Dornan in place as Christian Grey, Fifty Shades Of Grey can move forward.
Mark Bomback’s credits include not only the hit movie The Wolverine but several other well known movies for which he has written screenplays such as Unstoppable, Gosdend, Live Free Or Die Hard, Road To Witch Mountain, Legends, and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.
Universal Studios and Focus Features are adapting Fifty Shades from the novel of the same name, by E.L. James with writers Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks) and Patrick Marber (Closer).

Bomback has experience with kinky sex stories as he wrote the thriller Deception, starring Michelle Williams who finds herself caught between Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor.
Joining Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades is Dakota Johnson (Need For Speed) who plays the innocent recent college graduate Anastasia Steele, Jennifer Ehle (Pride And Prejudice, 1995) as Ana’s mother, Carla, and Luke Grimes (True Blood) as Christian’s brother Elliot.
