Aww sorry boo! We would so LOVE a 50 Shades flick set in Boston, where Christian Grey is a dirty cop whom Anastasia Steele sexually embeds herself with for a bust!
But seriously, before 50 Shades of Grey satisfied so many oppressed Mommys, Mark Wahlberg’s production company basically had the film rights tightly tied up…
Mark recently shared:
"We were very close to getting the rights, we were talking with the writer before she had an agent.I just knew that it was going to be a phenomenon, whether I thought it was good, bad or indifferent. It was definitely going to be one of those things that would create a huge buzz"
But then the erotic fan fiction blew its load and became a pulsating, giant success, and studios were whipped into a feverish frenzy to secure the film rights!
In the end, Universal & Focus Features enjoyed the ULTIMATE
post coital glow victory.
But WHO will play the notorious novel’s sexy leads?! WE MUST KNOW.
