The Fifty Shades of Grey movie screenplay writer has been announced, and it appears as though Bret Easton Ellis is less than pleased with the choice. The Psycho writer took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to convey his dismay, reports E!
"Kelly Marcel?!? KELLY MARCEL?!? Kelly Marcel is WRITING the script for 'Fifty Shades of Grey'?!? THIS is the movie they want to make? ARGH," he tweeted, before posting: "Kelly Marcel: the creator of (gulp) 'Terra Nova' and a Mary Poppins bio-pic has been blessed by EL James and no one can stop her. Dear God." It sounds like someone is incredibly bitter at the decision. Fifty Shades producer Dana Brunetti got involved in the tweet-feud, by saying, "@BretEastonEllis Really, Bret? The day you release that 'trailer'. School film? You're losing it...," This started a bit of a war, with fans of both sides tweeting their support/insults. "Shoot me now," Brunetti added, in reference to another tweeter's assumption: "I can only deduce that @DanaBrunetti is the EP / Producer of The Canyons. #AnyPressIsGoodPress."
Anyway, this all culminated in a silly argument, regrettable tweets and a Lindsay Lohan name drop or two. In other Fifty Shades new, or gossip we should say, is recently named Sexiest Woman Alive actress Mila Kunis; the Family Guy voice of Meg has been mooted strongly for a role in the upcoming adaptation.
