Fifty Shades Of Grey Getting Hit Hard With Actor Drop-Out AND Script Problems?!

| Filed under: Film Flickers50 Shades Of Grey

This is very ouch! And not a good ouch! Nope, definitely a bad ouch!

First, Fifty Shades of Grey loses the leading man for their movie after Charlie Hunnam calls it quits just a few weeks after signing on.

Now, we hear the film has hired someone new!

No, not the new Christian Grey…

They've hired a new writer to work on script problems!

Sources say Oscar-nominated Patrick Marber, who has penned flicks like Notes On A Scandal and Closer, is being brought in to give a polish to the pages!

Some insiders even say the original script, written by Kelly Marcel, might be the reason Charlie Hunnam left in the first place!

We wonder what the books author EL James has to say about this??

Script doctors are pretty standard in Hollywood however, and producers are saying the film is still on schedule to begin shooting next month.

They just need to find their seksi new stud to rock Anastasia's world!

Cough, Ian Somerhalder, cough, cough…

    OMG, you are kidding me!

    A book that is arguably one of the worst-written in human literary history (that perpetuates violence against women) is hitting a few snags?

    I'm so shocked.

    Well, I can't blame him after reading the script, I bet it's so corny and perverted. I don't think it's either going to be made, or it's going to worse than twilight and lets be honest..who's going to watch this film? Old perverts? Horny teens? Non the less, the book was written by someone who clearly doesn't look all there and looks like she fantasies way too much….maybe it's also based off a dream like twilight ;] Seriously though after seeing the author and seeing how old she is, the books looks ridiculous, I know a lot of people feel like this, from what I've seen/been told.

    Fifty Shades of SHIT is one of the worst books pop "follow me!" culture has ever turned into a best seller. It is really really poorly written ("He touched me there") and is about as sexy as walking in on your mom and dad fucking.

    Then the idiot producers snatch up the movie rights and proceed to make the worst casting choices in recent history (all due respect to "Batman" and Ben Affleck).

    CLUE: The only way to make this shit work is to toss everything except the core premise, REWRITE the entire thing, dump the "who-the-fuck?" female lead (Dakota something-or-other) and cast the "Christian" role with someone perfect: Alex Pettyfer.

    DUH. This is not rocket science people! Thank me now. Pay me later. That's all.

    the most overrated, overhyped, poorly written book series, second only to the Twilight series. Why would anyone want to be attached to a project that is going to be like a cheesy, not-even-soft-core-porn?

    I'm alot older than most of you and this story is NOT NEW.
    IT"S OLD really… The Original story was written in May 1969 by Jacquline Susann,writer of a tale called "The Valley of the Doll's" she wrote a book called "The Love Machine"
    Now "Fifty Shades of Grey" reminds me of this book!!!
    Christian Grey is just a copy of "Robin Stone" only younger??
    You want to read what was considered a "pot boiler" read "The Love Machine"
    Then tell EL James who you want to be playing "Christian Grey"??
    Don't think it will be any of the names bandied about~ it will be an older actor.
    Someone who's in his late 30's ????

    Very boring book, I was forced to read Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton in junior high, and at the time I though it was the most boring book I ever read, but this one easily tops it. Will NOT be seeing the movie so I do not care who they cast.

    SOA one of my favs & I've grown to love Charlie. As for this anti-female sado-maschistic fiction- seems like piece of shit & DO NOT find saddism sexy- I think this will be career ender for anyone involved-&BOX OFFICE FAILURE! like "Boxng Helena" also saddist anti-female- widely panned- OK 1st amendmend but most sane people are not into bondage & SM- & this will bomb & be a 1/2 star movie out of 5- Charlie must have read the script finally; & I hope Francois has enough sense not to sign up- They will have to get some poor out of work porn acter hoping to go mainstream- or maybe they can hunt on Santa Monica Blvd & find a Pro! this will die a quick painful death!

    PS - missed typo 1st amendment-
    if u watch SOA Charlie has big career ahead- as does Arnaud-& is one of those lucky people who look better without his clothes on-
    I can't see anyone with any acting creds considering this-
    make it as a B&W lo budget to sell/rent in XXX video stores-
    I just don't know who would like this except some SM perverts-EVEN if it was better written.
    Twilight was for teen-ager vampire lovers- that at least had a reasonable niche
