Fifty Shades Of Grey screenwriter says the movie is going to be “raunchy.” Well, no sh*t.
The raunchiest book to hit bookshelves since, I don’t know, something by Ann Rice, will get the big screen treatment and the screenwriter Kelly Marcel for the film says it’s going to be XXXcore.
“We are 100 percent going there. There is going to be a lot of sex in the film,” says Marcel, “It will be rated NC-17. It will be raunchy.”
Well, duh? I mean, if you cut out any of the sex scenes, the movie is literally just scenes of Anna and Christian eating dinner or going to work. AKA, boring, and exactly the opposite of why anyone read the book.
A lot of fans, myself included, expected the movie to have slightly fewer sex scenes, or maybe toned down versions of them. It would be a p*rn otherwise.
But I don’t think anyone was expecting an NC-17 rating!
Very few films with an NC-17 rating do well. Mostly because some theaters refuse to play movies with that kind of rating. That being said, if the screenwriter gets her way, there’s no way the bedroom action in Fifty Shades could possibly be tame enough to get an R rating, unless it’s an “R” for “Raunchy!” HEYO!
Of course, when the studio behind the film was asked for comment, they deny everything, “A screenplay has not yet been written, a rating has not been designated and we have no further comment.”
