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.

  Millenium’s forthcoming prequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is coming along nicely, with the announcement of a new title and a new screenwriter. The new film is now officially titled Leatherface, which would seem to back up recent reports that the plot will deal with the titular nutjob’s teenage years.

LOST IN AUSTEN Finds Carrie Brownstein Continuing Nora Ephron’s Work

Aug 5 2014 6:33pm CDT | Source: Collider

I liked a lot of Nora Ephron’s movies and, as praised as she was, I think her voice as a screenwriter is undervalued in today’s landscape of paper-thin romantic comedies (that is when they’re making rom-coms at all, the genre is temporarily on the wane).  Heartburn, When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle were all quite good and had a strong authorial voice.  While something like Heartburn might lack the polish of her later ...
