Were you worried that the movie version of 50 Shades of Grey wasn't going to give you a massive boner like the book did?
Do not fear: Kelly Marcel is here!
She's the hired screenwriter… and she just dropped the bomb that she's writing the script with the goal of NC-17 in mind!
This is good news for people who want the film to be as close to the source material as possible without being flat-out pornography. This is bad news for people who want it to make a lot of money, because in the past NC-17 ratings can instantly kill a film’s box office potential because the film is too graphic for an average moviegoer to be comfortable with.
It probably has something to do with us being super cool with our imaginations being dirty, but us being uncomfortable seeing it for real. Doesn't really make sense, but that's the ridic way it works right now!!
Here's what Kelly said:
