“Fifty Shades of Grey”, for better or worse (worse in my opinion) has taken off with readers. Now the film adaptation is coming with screenwriter Kelly Marcel saying the film is aiming for an NC-17 rating. There were also rumors about the film hitting theaters next year. If that’s true the film needs a director and soon. Well a director has shot some test footage with Alex Pettyfer to film a sex scene to prove that this director is the right man for the job. Who is he? Well he directed…”Milk” and “Good Will Hunting”. Yes Gus Van Sant is going after ‘Fifty Shades of Grey”. No this doesn’t make any sense to me either.
