The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is to get top treatment from Oscar-nominated producers
The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is to be made by the producers of the Oscar-nominated film The Social Network, it has been announced.
While it’s still not known who will play the lead roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, it has been revealed in a joint statement by Universal Pictures and Focus Features that Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti will work together to adapt the best-selling trilogy.
‘At its core, Fifty Shades of Grey is a complex love story, requiring a delicate and sophisticated hand to bring it to the big screen,’ said Universal co-chairman Donna Langley in a statement.
‘Mike and Dana’s credits more than exemplify what we need in creative partners, and we’re glad to have them as part of our team.’
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Universal and Focus bought the rights to the ‘mummy porn’ novels for $5million in March.
It’s thought that Ryan Gosling is the favourite to play the lead role of 27-year-old businessman Christian Grey – watch the video below to see why we think that’s a great idea!
