Kelly Marcel not daunted by Fifty Shades

Dec 24 2013, 12:08am CST | by

Kelly Marcel didn't feel pressure while writing the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' script.

The screenwriter had the difficult task of adapting E.L. James' best-selling novel for the big screen, but the British scribe insists she wasn't put off by the fervent fan discussion on social media about how the film should be written and made.

She explained to Collider.com: ''It's really fascinating to have it play out in real time. Normally, nobody knows the script is being written, they just hear about it when the film comes out.

''But these massive fans are having to sit there and wait for years. It's very difficult to make people understand that it doesn't all happen in three months. It takes time to build a script, and then it takes time to cast a film, and then it takes time to shoot the film and edit the film. It's interesting to hear their thoughts on that.''

''It was also very interesting to hear their thoughts on casting because those characters exist in their heads. I do think the social media thing is really fascinating, but it doesn't daunt me. I like it, in a weird way. It's helpful with something like that. With 'Fifty Shades', it was really helpful to see what people want and see if you can give it to them.''

The 'Fifty Shades' film will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and will star Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele.

The film is due for release in February 2015.

Sep 19 2014 9:10am CDT | Source: Collider

It wasn't a huge surprise when Legendary Pictures announced Godzilla 2 at Comic-Con.  Godzilla had a huge opening weekend, and it recently crossed $200 million domestic.  What was nice about the Comic-Con announcement was that it revealed three monsters that would be taking on Godzilla: Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.  According to Deadline, Max Borenstein, who wrote the first movie, is being brought back for the sequel, so he's probably got a good handle on how to wrangl ...

‘You’re Next’ Filmmakers Developing ‘I Saw the Devil’ Remake

Sep 16 2014 9:06am CDT | Source: Screen Rant

Last year’s release of Spike Lee’s Oldboy did little to inspire confidence in American remakes of Asian films, as the Josh Brolin-led mystery thriller flopped hard at the box office and was met with a tepid response from critics. The horror genre in particular frequently finds filmmakers raiding the World Cinema shelves in search of their next plot, and the few examples of great remakes don’t quite make up for the flood of bad ones. None ...
