Just what the world needs: a film about a popular erotic fiction story. As most of you know, 50 Shades of Grey is getting a movie made about it. I have no idea the content of this book, but all I know is it opens the floodgates of many middle aged women out there.
What the concern is, will be how they manage to pull off the kinky nature of the book within reason of the reputation of the major studio producing it. They will have to pick the right director to fill the job (and other holes, amirite?) and get it done right. Have they found one?
It has been rumored that director Joe Wright may be on board. I have not seen many of his films. Quite honestly, I’ve only seen Hanna, and I didn’t take too much of a liking to it. Wright has other fairly known movies such as The Soloist, Pride and Prejudice, Anna Karenina and Atonement.
Wright has been known to make some classy movies, so it will be interesting to see how he would handle such smut. I’m still a naysayer for this whole ordeal. Can’t we just watch porn by ourselves alone and not with a theater of people?
