50 shades of grey movie

As well as talking up a now-confirmed Bourne fivequel, Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson also told The Hollywood Reporter about the state of play with some of the studio's other burgeoning franchises, namely Snow White And The Huntsman and the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy.

In the Snow White camp there's news that the director of the original film, Rupert Sanders, isn't "pursuing the next Snow White as a directing opportunity" but they're still very keen to follow-up the success of the first movie, which made "basically $400 million worldwide" off a $170 million outlay.

Then there's the ever-so-scandalous - and yet somehow public transport-friendly - 50 Shades Of Grey film adaptations, also known as your next door neighbours' favourite bondage / discipline / dominance / submission / sadism / masochism novels from British author E.L. James.

Fogelson is keen to underline that Universal aren't rushing thing there: "I don't believe that [E.L. James] had any interest in going to a studio where rushing it into production was the vision. I don't believe that the second or third film would have benefited from that strategy."

That said, you can still expect that Team Universal "could be ready to release [the first Fifty Shades Of Grey] as early as next summer" even though no stars or directors have been announced as yet. "I think that there are totally legitimate questions about what this book is as a movie," Fogelsen adds.  Suggest your own legitimate questions about the film - as long as they're decent, naturally - in the comment box below.

The Snow White And The Huntsman sequel has no planned release date, with 50 Shades Of Grey, as mentioned, shooting for a summer 2014 release.

"Mommy Porn"
Anyone who thinks this book is all just sex, has clearly not even bothered to read it. More

50 Shades of What?
I still don't get why 50 Shades of Grey needs to be a film, there are literally thousands of films like it on the internet already. I'm sure porn has already made a version of 50 Shades of Grey anyway, in fact I'm pretty sure they have and EL James just stole her idea from that film. Studios stop wasting time trying to make money just because a book is successful More

Guys won't read the book but the film will be packing them in
A run away box office hit. As for a director give it to David Cronenberg. More
