Securing the Producers of Fifty Shades

As we knew, E.L. James and her agent, Valerie Hoskins, were Back in Hollywood sorting out the next step in the movie puzzle (one with 50 pieces, of course!) — the selection of a producer and/or producers.

Several well-known names were rumored to be on the short list, but according to Deadline.com, both Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti have been named producers to the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. They have previously teamed up on The Social Network. (Tackling current phenomenon, from Facebook to Fifty Shades seems fitting in a way, doesn’t it?)

Mr. De Luca has worked on movies as vanilla as Pleasantville to as risque as Boogie Nights.

Ms. James’ approved of the choice expressing, “I am thrilled that Mike has joined Team Fifty. He brings a passion for and in-depth understanding of the characters and story, and a wealth of experience in making quality films.”

Sounds perfect to us!

Interestingly, the article goes on to address the rumor about Angelina Jolie being involved in the movie, stating “an informal conversation” had been held with her about directing. With the inclusion of this tidbit, we hope it means we’ll soon hear who has been chosen to direct the project!

Mr. De Luca and Mr. Brunetti, welcome to Team Fifty!

  1. I’m so excited but we have a longgggg way to go.

    Lmao! Look what i wrote, “we” bwaahaha! (Like i had something to do with it. NOT) Why do i feel like i am apart of this. Am i the only one who feels this way? Please tell me im not.

    • Hi there, i see your name. Are you spanish? If you are can i reccomend to book to you. My friend self published a novel called Cafe y Martinis by Helena Moran-Hayes. You can get it on amazon. Its only in spanish, i bought it to support her but i cant read it. Lol its a romance. Im trying to spread the word. Thanks.

  2. I think Sharon Stone would be a good Mrs. Robinson as well. Although Angelina Jolie would probably be a good one too. I hope Angelina Jolie doesn’t direct it though!!! Nooooooo! I don’t think she has enough experience with directing and this movie has to be perfect. I cannot wait for it to come out …the wait is killing me! I am re-reading the books and would love to know who the actors will be!!! aaaaaahhhhh!

  3. I think Ryan Reynolds & Alexis Dziena should play Christian & Ana. Wish I could post pics I have of them you would c it too!

  4. I want ALEX PETTYFER to play Christian! He would be perfect!!!
    If not him though I would want Ian Somerhalder!
    I like Emilia Clarke as Ana!

  5. & I think Charlize Theron should be made to look older and play Mrs. Robinson. Or Ellen Barkin as Mrs. Robinson. Jessica Stoup or Amber Heard should play Kate. Henry Cavill as Elliot. Amanda Seyfried or Isabel Lucas as the crazy ex sub. Felicity Jones as Mia. Joseph Morgan as Jack.

  6. in the soundtrack, they should put -shock to my system- of Gemma Hayes , the song just remind me of the books and viceversa !!

  7. OH MY WORD – Please please PLEASE let Christian Grey be Ian Somerhaulder and NOT Ryan Gossling!?!?! LOOK at Ian – that perfect smile, those haunting eyes, that body …… All us girls (and the men wise enough to read throught the books, which incidentally changed most of our lives) here in South Africa would LOVE to see Ian on screen – I promise you it would have a MUCH greater success rate as a move with Ian in it rather than Ryan …… HOPE YOU GUYS LISTEN to the public hehehehehehehehehe :)

  8. Hey Directors, and production staff, Ian Somerhaulder would be a perfect fit for the bad boy role as Christian Grey, I feel he would be the best possible choice for the following reasons:
    1. Good looking
    2. Well known for Bad boy role in Vampire diaries, (will ensure revenue and viewers)
    3. Hair colour is not a hard limit :)
