SAM TAYLOR-JOHNSON TO DIRECT “FIFTY SHADES OF GREY”




We finally have a director! You know what that means? Casting is next.

Universal Pictures and Focus Features posted this official press release on Wednesday, June 19.

Universal Pictures and Focus Features today announced that Sam Taylor-Johnson will direct the highly anticipated film adaptation of “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are producing the film based on E L James’ #1 bestselling book, alongside James. The announcement was made by Universal Pictures Co-Chairman, Donna Langley and Focus Features’ Chief Executive Officer, James Schamus.

“Sam’s unique ability to gracefully showcase complex relationships dealing with love, emotion and sexual chemistry make her the ideal director to bring Christian and Anastasia’s relationship to life,” said De Luca. “E L James’ characters and vivid storytelling require a director who is willing to take risks and push the envelope where needed and Sam is a natural fit.”

Taylor-Johnson most recently directed 2009’sNowhere Boy, the story of John Lennon’s childhood in Liverpool, where his fledgling genius found a kindred spirit in the teenage Paul McCartney. The film garnered two BAFTA nominations, including “Outstanding British Film” and “Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer.” Taylor-Johnson also directed the critically acclaimed short Love You Morewhich was nominated for the Palme D’Or in 2008. She is currently in development on a film for Columbia Pictures based on the novel by Robert Goorlick, “A Reliable Wife,” which is also being produced by De Luca.

“I am excited to be charged with the evolution of Fifty Shades of Grey from page to screen,” said Taylor-Johnson. “For the legions of fans, I want to say that I will honor the power of Erika’s book and the characters of Christian and Anastasia. They are under my skin too.”

'Fifty Shades of Grey' at CinemaCon: Producer Talks Film



It has been a long time since anyone from Team Fifty has been out there talking about 'Fifty Shades of Grey'. We are excited to see one of the producers, Michael DeLuca, out at Cinema Con talking about Fifty once again.

CinemaCon, a convention for theater owners, was full of panel discussions and exclusive movie content this year. Some of the most influential names in Hollywood gathered in Las Vegas, Universal Chairman Adam Fogelson being one of them. The head of the studio that is making "Fifty Shades of Grey" took part in a "Think Tank 2.0" panel to discuss theatrical release dates. He promoted the idea of releasing big films all year long, not just in Summer and Winter. On April 17 The Hollywood Reporter stated that Fogelson and Producer Michael De Luca took part in the discussion.

Michael De Luca, half of the producing powerhouse duo for "Fifty Shades of Grey" told the crowd not to expect a literal adaptation of the novel but instead a film with the same sentiment saying, "the movie will be different from the book, " he went on to say “the book is literal by design. … The cinematic language doesn’t have to be explicit.” What does this mean to fans who expect plenty of erotic content? Hopefully De Luca is simply preparing fans for the inevitable, the film will likely be R-rated and there is only so much that censors will allow with that rating.

The biggest surprise of CinemaCon 2013 was the appearance of Henry Cavill. While many would expect the new Superman to be seen at the Warner Bros. presentation of exclusive content, Cavill was photographed by Sipa Press with girlfriend Gina Carano with the caption, "Henry Cavill and Gina Carano attend as Universal Pictures presents their slate." Henry has no future projects with Universal but Gina Carano is currently promoting "The Fast and the Furious 6." Henry Cavill has long been a favorite to play Christian Grey in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" film.

Fifty Shades of Grey Publisher Random House Posts Record Profits Thanks to Series...




We love hearing that Fifty Shades is breaking records and flying off the shelves! Let's keep it going!!

Here is whats being reported on this...

EL James's Fifty Shades trilogy sold more than 70m copies in 2012, driving Random House to record annual revenues and profits.

The publisher's operating profit leapt 75% year on year to €325m (£275.7m) in 2012. Revenues at the Bertelsmann-owned company, which is awaiting final clearance on a merger with Pearson's Penguin, grew 22.5% year-on-year to €2.1bn.

James' Fifty Shades of Grey and sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed became the book publishing phenomenon of 2012, shifting more than 70m copies between March and December.

About 50% of revenues from the trilogy were from ebooks, compared to Random House's global average of about 20% from digital sales. Fifty Shades accounted for almost one in 10 of the 750m books Random House sold globally in print or online across the year.

The runaway success of Fifty Shades helped Bertelsmann maintain overall group profit levels, despite tough advertising conditions for its TV, magazine and music publishing businesses.
