E.L. James can sleep soundly tonight!! Or as soundly as one could ever sleep atop bricks of gold bars, LOLz!!
50 Shades of Grey found a screenwriter!! Her name is Kelly Marcel!
Is Kelly the mastermind behind 9 1/2 Weeks?? Does she have experience writing Penthouse Letters?
Whoa! Talk about putting lipstick on a pit bull!
That's like bringing French artist Edgar Degas to a dive bar and commissioning him to draw eXXXotic stick figures on the door of the bathroom stall!
Don't class up our favorite piece of smut-fiction too much, Mizz Marcel!! The people would storm the gates of your castle if you didn't give them copious amounts of ball-gags and anal beads!
Universal Pictures, E.L., and producer Mike De Luca picked her for a reason, though, and they aren't worried. Mike praised her in a recent statement:
“Kelly’s work demonstrates her flawless structural technique and passionate commitment to emotion, humor and depth of character.”
