FIFTY SHADES OF GREY Screenwriter Has Yet To Watch The Finished Film

Fifty shades of Grey garnered $500 million worldwide and millions saw the erotic flick — however... its screenwriter, Kelly Marcel, did not watch it.

Marcel gave her thoughts and opinions on the film’s production on the Bret Easton Ellis podcast, PodcastOne, this week, revealing that she still hasn’t watched the film that she wrote. Marcel said she has conflicting thoughts on the film’s events.

“A lot of what happened on ‘Fifty Shades’ really broke my heart,” Marcel said.

While talking about novelist E.L James, who wrote the book, Marcel said the two went back and forth on what to keep and what to nix.

“She would always let me fight for things that I felt passionate about,” Marcel said. “And in the end, we ended up with a draft that was a halfway compromise. But she had still been very brave about what she had let go.”

Several earlier reports, however, said director Sam Taylor-Johnson, whom will not return to direct the sequel, “Fifty Shades Darker,” has decided to move away from the franchise in part because of constant arguments with James over the direction of the film during its production.

Niall Leonard, James’ husband, has been tapped to pen the screenplay for “Fifty Shades Darker.”
No director has been chosen yet to replace Sam Taylor-Johnson

“Darker” will have a Valentine’s weekend release Feb. 10, 2017.
