We could be getting not one, but TWO, different versions of Fifty Shades come 2015
Fifty Shades of Grey could be getting a double release, with the possibility of two different versions of the film set to come out in February 2015.
The film’s producer, Dana Brunetti, has hinted that he would like two cuts of the movie made, to satisfy the desires of all the book’s fans.
While the movie is currently slated to be R-rated, which is equivalent to a UK 15, Dana would also like to make a more explicit, 18-rated version of the film for those that want the film to be as close to the book (and as steamy) as possible.
Speaking to Collider, Dana said: ‘This is just my opinion and this doesn’t mean this is going to happen, but I always thought it would be really cool if we released the R version and then we had an NC-17 [UK 18] version that we released a few weeks later. So everybody could go and enjoy the R version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it, then have that NC-17 version out there as well.’
It seems that this is a sentiment that the film’s star, Dakota Johnson, might agree with. The 24-year old told Entertainment Weekly that she thinks the ‘sex makes [the story] perfect.’
‘Sometimes you feel a bit naughty and that’s okay.’ the actress continued.
Of course, two versions of Fifty Shades would mean a double dose of Jamie Dornan. We don’t think we’d say no to that…
