With E L James in Los Angeles since this weekend there has been a lot of buzz about what she’s been doing. Most of it is speculation regarding what she’s been tweeting. Here is a review:
Erika came in to LA on Friday and didn’t waste any time seeing Kelly Marcel (screenwriter) and perhaps picking up some interesting reading material. She’s also been out with the producers Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca, even got to ride is Dana’s Tesla!
So, the band is back together, what fabulous news. But the question is what are they discussing. The only thing tweeted about her seeing Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca has been regarding social events. While I’m sure Fifty probably came up, I doubt they were discussing the script, actors or directors in public. Dana Brunetti also flew out of LA over the weekend and hasn’t said he’s back. But he did tweet about meeting Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. Hmm, maybe he’s working on the soundtrack. JOKING!
Back to EL James, on Tuesday she spent he day with Kelly Marcel and burned the evidence.
I guess the script isn’t done yet, but it’s getting there… While the timing of this trip may have been about the Oscars, this is definitely a working trip too.
As for the Oscars, apparently Erika was chatty at the Vanity Faire party. As Mags mentioned on Tuesday, she said her next book will be less raunchy and she’ll be using a pseudonym. WHAT? That’s just crazy! But she also said that she has a few actors in mind (old news) and that she thinks we’ll be surprised by her choices.
Hmmm, does that mean we should give up on Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder or whoever the “favorite” is each day? I’m not going that far, but I’m sticking with my idea of not getting too attached to anyone. But several months ago I did predict that Ryan Gosling would get the role and his name has not come up as a “favorite” in a while… As for Ana, I think it will be a relatively unknown. Now that would be a surprise name to everyone.
Now that I’ve laid my predictions regarding Christian and Ana onto the internet, we still need the director to be named before we find out who will play Christian and Ana. We know that Universal/Team50 has been talking with some directors, so it’s likely we’re not looking at a long list anymore, but how short is the list? At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if they announced the director as E L James gets on a plane back home. But I think another month or two is more realistic.
Finally Erika ended her day with some Twilight:
