A panel of female filmmakers were speechless after being asked about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie
Fifty Shades of Grey movie talk is predominantly focused on which celebrities will take on the coveted roles, but at CinemaCon in Las Vegas this week it left an auditorium stunned as an audience member posed the question: how will the movie adaptation of the hit books effect women in Hollywood?
While the Fifty Shades Grey movie didn’t cause offensive it did leave the panel speechless. Industry power players joined forces this week for a talk on females in the film industry called, Women + Films = Bigger Box Office. Sharing their opinions was The Hunger Games producer, Nina Jacobson, Amy Miles CEO of Regal Entertainment and Fox Animation Studios president, Vanessa Morrison.
Geena David represented the acting contingency while the only male on the panel was Paul Feig, director of The Heat and Bridesmaids while The Hollywood Reporter hosted the event.
When asked the question about whether the Fifty Shades of Grey movie would be the best or worst thing to happen to women in film the panelists remained predominantly silent. Amy Miles simply shrugged and smiled, while Vanessa Morrison also dodged the questions saying she just worked in animation.
Geena Davis admitted she was ‘speechless’ while Paul Feig joked he’s direct it but admitted he hasn’t read it. The only person to properly response was Nina Jacobson who said: ‘Female desire is a very complex subject.’
And it appears so is the Fifty Shades of Grey movie…
