Here is the media’s Fifty Shades of Grey news. As always, we will write a full post of the bigger or more interesting news stories.
- Vote for E L James for the Time 100 Poll, the people that are most influential in the world. Voteing ends on April 12 and the finalized list will be revealed on April 18.
- WhatCulture has an article about 10 Moments that wont make the movie. While there are some inaccuracies and some of the points are kinda silly (it goes from spelling out how it wont be porn to proposing a PG-13 rating). There are a few good points in there too.
- Betty Ford’s family has said that if she was still alive she would have read Fifty Shades of Grey, I thought that was cute. The question is, would she have commented on it publically?
- FansShare has an article about how Kelly Marcel is taking too long to write the script for Fifty Shades of Grey. The article claims that recent reports say that the script is months away. It does not mention what reports they are referring to or who made the claim. In contrast to this, we have heard from Universal/Focus Features that they have started talking to Directors. This story isn’t adding up to me.
- The Wrap is reporting that Gus Van Sant has made a video/scene from the Fifty Shades of Grey film with Alex Pettyfer. The scene is of when Christian takes Ana’s virginity. Gus Van Sant’s name has come up as a possible director a couple times and he has done some films for Focus Features. I wouldn’t rule out this rumor just yet. As for Alex Pettyfer, I don’t see it.
