It seems like the big-screen adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel “Fifty Shades of Grey” is facing some major obstacles, but we’ve come up with a few suggestions on how this movie can indeed be made.
Now that Charlie Hunnam has bailed as Christian Grey, it might be smart to start from scratch and simply find a newbie actor. Rumor has it “Once Upon a Time” star Jamie Doran is now a frontrunner. That could work.
Maybe Just Hire Matt Bomer Already
Many of the “Fifty Shades” fans really, really want “White Collar” star Matt Bomer as their Christian Grey… so make him an offer he can’t refuse!
Make Sure They Know Who’s Boss
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hunnam clashed with the film’s creative team, including director Sam Taylor-Johnson, and wanted script approval. Find an actor who won’t make waves.
Don’t Shy Away from the Subject Matter
The fact is “Fifty Shades of Grey” is softcore porn and should be treated as such. See below.
Relocate the production to France and cast French actors. Has anyone seen the Cannes Film Festival winner “Blue is the Warmest Color,” which shows a very real relationship between two women? The French are not shy about on-screen sex.
