FIFTY SHADES OF GREY
Sam Taylor-Johnson has been secured to Direct.
I can’t wait to see who will be the stars of this Film next!
Sam Taylor is an English Filmmaker, photographer and a visual artist whose directorial debut was 2009′s Nowhere Boy about the early life of John Lennon and she directed the critically acclaimed Love You More which was in Cannes in 2008. She also has ties to De Luca — the pair are in development on a film based on the Robert Goorlick novel A Reliable Wife which De Luca is also producing.
Taylor has been secured to direct 50 Shades of Grey, the sizzling novel adaptation. Brit Kelly Marcel has written the script for the movie, based on EL James’ bestseller that follows the relationship of 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and college student Anastasia Steele. Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca are producing alongside James. “Sam’s unique ability to gracefully showcase complex relationships dealing with love, emotion and sexual chemistry make her the ideal director to bring Christian and Anastasia’s relationship to life,” said De Luca. “EL James’ characters and vivid storytelling require a director who is willing to take risks and push the envelope where needed, and Sam is a natural fit.”
Having a woman to direct this is what the audience will love . She began her career in the 1990s as an art photographer, meaning she could lend a unique aesthetic touch to the erotic novel’s adaptation.
No actors have yet been confirmed to star in the film adaptation, which was announced in early 2012, though several stars — including James Franco and Chace Crawford for Grey and Jennifer Love Hewitt and Aubrey Plaza as Steele — have expressed interest.
The three books have been translated into 45 languages worldwide since its release and have sold over 70 million copies in e-book and print. During the bidding, I’d heard that 10 studio chiefs were involved in one of the wildest book-to-movie auctions in recent and distant memory.
