Kelly Marcel: Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Screenwriter

It was announced earlier this year that E L James and the team she works with have chosen a screen writer to pen the movie script. By now we know that Universal Pictures and Focus Features have picked up the project, and Mike DeLuca & Dana Brunetti (of The Social Network) have been chosen as producers. The next step in deciding the creative team behind the movie was to nail down a screenwriter. Rather than going with the popular favorite Bret Easton Ellis, a relative unknown was chosen – Kelly Marcel.

Probably the most popular thing that Kelly Marcel has worked on is Terra Nova, a science fiction drama that ran on Fox for a single season. British fans may know her for various walk in roles on a few cop and medical based dramas that show over in the United Kingdom. She’s currently working on a movie called “Saving Mr Banks”, which deals with Walt Disney’s attempts at trying to make the Mary Poppins movie. Dana Brunetti has been quoted as saying,  “We were all taken with the depth and passion of Kelley’s engagement with the characters and world E L James has created and we knew she was the right person to augment our Fifty Shades family”. This is a peculiar pick for a screenwriter, in my opinion. Maybe is the fact that she wanted a female Brit to have the job, or maybe she felt that she could influence more control over Kelly. Who knows…

So why is it important that a screenwriter has been picked? Well the guys who are on the fan’s short list to play the role of Christian Grey – Ian Somerhalder, Alexander Skargard and Matt Bomer – have all said that they won’t comment about their interested in the role until they have read the screen play. Obviously, if it’s done badly, they don’t want to be associated with millions of fan’s disappointment. Coincidentally, Kelly Marcel is connected with another Christian Grey possibility – Tom Hardy. Tom and Kelly have formed a theater company together, and Kelly as written a number of scripts for the actor.

Hopefully, this script will come to fruition quickly so we can see who’s up for the lead in the movie (but not too quickly that it doesn’t get the attention it deserves).
