Definitely not. They'll probably do an unrated DVD and pimp the fuck out of it having extended sequences, but no studio will risk an NC-17 anymore.
This film SCREAMS Adrian Lyne.
NC 17 = a pussy shot and a fake dick.
They'll do an R version for the theater, but release a "special NC17" version for DVD.
They're going to have their work cut out for them in selling this film. The book was marketed as a "tee-hee aren't I naughty?" book that women could read on the Kindle without anyone else seeing what they're looking at. This was the basis for all of the hype.
A movie is something else entirely - people don't want to feel as if they're going in to watch porn, even if it isn't actually porn.
It sold out in paperback too. I see women reading it and talking about it everywhere. They aren't ashamed that its "porn."
Women will go sit it with their girlfriends. It will be an event movie for them. I don't see how it won't be a hit.
That's a good point R4. Are these fraus really going to go to the theater to see this?
It'll make money no doubt, but I can't see it being a hit. For some reason people get hung up on images but not on words. The jump to the screen will bring in the types of women who read with their girlfriends for a laugh, but the cubefraus using it as shower nozzle masturbation material mightn't want their husbands and pastors seeing them at a porn.
If they had changed it to 50 Shades of Red I was set to star and direct.
Because that worked out so well for Showgirls!
I don't know if 50 Shades is such a crowd pleaser, like the Sex and the City movies where a group of female or gay friends goes into the movie and watch/enjoy it as a group.
I just don't see the stereotypical frau being that vocal and open to watch and discuss visually erotic scenes with other women or even men.
It started as fan fiction on a Twilight fan site (really), so the author is a major Twilight fan.
The female is 22 and the male is 27.
Anyone else see where the casting is going for this?
Those theater seats are going to be so moist from the dripping frau juices.
It won't be NC-17 and any depictions of sadomasochism will be highly diluted. It's still too controversial.
I doubt it will be any more explicit than the "scandalous" 9 1/2 Weeks.
Won't it be boring watching the same two people have sex for two hours?
I wonder if they'll use a voiceover. Better yet, have someone act out her inner monologue.
Leslie Jordan to play the inner goddess!
