'Gilmore Girls' creator Amy Sherman-Palladino may have disappointed us recently with the news that there will be no revival of the iconic series, but the screenwriter is currently working on a musical - though we're yet to find out what it will be about.

Ok, so we're probably going to have to wave goodbye to Stars Hollow, but at least creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is working on new projects to obsess about. At the ATX Television Festival in Austin on Saturday (June 6th 2015), she seemed excited to reveal that she was currently working on a book for a musical. And while she refused to reveal any significant details about it save for it being 'based on a movie nobody would have seen', she did insist that it would be an 'original' piece.

Cold Feet? Dakota Johnson CouldFollow Charlie Hunnam In 'Fifty Shades' Exit


Dakota Johnson Charlie Hunnam E.L. James Sam Taylor-Wood Matt Bomer Alexis Bledel Cillian Murphy Ryan Gosling Brad Pitt

It was going rather well for the Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson and her team: after what seemed like ages they'd managed to pull off a great casting decision, choosing two actors on the cusp of big-time fame. However, they were not only hit by a 90k strong petition telling them their choice was wrong; they had to say goodbye to Charlie Hunnam, AKA Christian Grey, and learn their Anastasia Steele, Dakota Johnson, had a touch of the heebie jeebies too.

Sons of Anarchy star Hunnam's exit was confirmed earlier this week due to an "immersive TV schedule" that would prevent the actor from being able to fully prepare for the role of Christian Grey. The film took a hit, author EL James sent her best, and fans began to wonder whether Hunnam had secretly been influenced by the petition launched to replace him and Johnson with Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel.

Does 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Abuse Research Affect Hollywood Movie?


Sam Taylor-Wood Ian Somerhalder Matt Bomer Alexis Bledel Nina Dobrev E.L. James

Shocker: Fifty Shades of Grey reinforces the problem of abuse against women, new research has shown. Nope, it seems EL James' novel - the fastest selling paperback of all time - cannot be regarded simply as "erotic fantasy."

Amy Bonomi, a professor at Michigan State University, and two former colleagues from Ohio State University undertook an in-depth study of the book's first eight chapters and found that "emotional abuse is present in nearly every interaction."

They found that the book, dubbed "mummy porn," included a number of examples of "intimate partner violence", including intimidation, isolation, stalking and humiliation.

Garrett Hedlund Offered '50 Shades' Role By EL James, But Rejects It


Garrett Hedlund Ian Somerhalder Armie Hammer Mila Kunis Alexis Bledel Emma Watson Jennifer Lawrence

Actor Garrett Hedlund has rejected the lead role in the adaptation of EL James' raunchy erotic novel, Fifty Shades of Grey due to being unable to commit to a trilogy. The movie, which has yet to cast a single role, is due for release in 2014 with the Nowhere Boy director, Sam Taylor Johnson, at the helm and the author herself as producer.

Garrett Hedlund
"Do I Really Want To Be Filmed Slapping Someone With A Paddle? Nah."

The Tron: Legacy actor had been reportedly hand-picked by the author herself to play the 27 year-old billionaire with a fetish for domination. However, the actor and boyfriend of Kirsten Dunst passed up on the opportunity to become the face of the biggest franchise since the series. A source speaking to US Magazine explained that "Doing a possible trilogy was too big a commitment, and producers wouldn't let him do just one film."

50 Shades Of Grey Movies Gets A Release Date: The Story So Far


Sam Taylor-Wood Mila Kunis Emma Watson Alexis Bledel Ian Somerhalder Stephen Amell Robert Pattinson Krysten Ritter

50 Shades Of Grey just became the biggest movie event of summer 2014 that isn't about super heroes, with Universal announcing their plans to have the film out by August 1 2014. The film will be quite the change from Guardians of the Galaxy, the Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X Men: Days of Future Past, but with a director, script and now a release date all lined up, the much-discussed movie adaption looks like it might finally happen after all. Still no work on who will be in it though, but that's just details.

So we know when the movie should be out, and providing director Sam Taylor-Johnson can keep things on track as soon as we get our Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, then things are looking good. Taylor-Johnson was chosen to take on directing duties earlier this month and her announcement behind the camera has obviously given the producers confidence enough to push forward and commit to a date for when we'll see it on screen. Relatively inexperienced as a director, Taylor-Johnson could prove a competent pick nonetheless having achieved praise for her only work so far; the John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy.
