Bret Easton Ellis - Bret Easton Ellis Devastated After Missing Out On 50 Shades Of Grey Job

American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis is disappointed to have been knocked out of the running to write the movie adaptation of saucy novel 50 Shades Of Grey.
The erotic book by E.L. James has taken the literary world by storm since its release last year (11) and has been picked up by studio bosses to be made into a movie.
Ellis was one of the front runners to land the screenwriting job and even discussed who he would like to see playing the sex-mad lead characters, but he announced on Twitter.com on Tuesday (07Aug12) that he has not been chosen to pen the project.
He writes, "It's a very major disappointment to announce that I've somehow been taken off the list of possible screenwriters for Fifty Shades of Grey...
"Thanks to the fans for the months of intense support. Your awesome enthusiasm and great suggestions were instructive and meaningful to me...
"I hope you find someone as passionate as I was about Fifty Shades of Grey. I will miss it. Moving on. Laters, baby..."
