The Associated Press is saying today that Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti will be producing Fifty Shades of Grey. I have no idea if this is true or not, but it would be great to have a producer named.
This is the team that brought us The Social Network. Michael De Luca is also known for his work on American History X and Moneyball.
I have seen The Social Network and American History X, both great movies. Mags and I both loved American History X, a very intense movie with difficult topics to bring to the screen in a tasteful way. I’m not sure I would use the word tasteful for the movie, but the movie did an excellent job of bringing the story to life.
We have high hopes for this team!
