And to think she could've been lady stark. Jennifer ehle filmed the pilot episode and when it was picked up they refilmed her scenes with Michele fairly.

They will still manage to exclude any hint of nudity from the movie.

Based on what I've heard about the book, you could hire just about any good looking male pornstar to play Christian Grey - his defining character traits are 1) ridiculously good looking 2) incredibly wealthy 3) an enormous schwanzstucker

If you go to any book store (if you can find one nowadays), you can see a million "romance" novels. What makes this series so special that it becomes a big budget motion picture?

Please tell me I'm not the only person who misread this headline as somehow being about The Picture of Dorian Gray.

So someone about to make a film says they are sure it will be great rather than saying "who knows, it could be crap"? Shocking.

It's much more explicit than romance novels tend to be.  It also just happened to catch on with everyone.

Is this surpassing the Twilight series as a movie that no Farker will see but will get a thread about it every day or so?  I mean, if that's the case, I hope whoever they cast will just flat out beat the tar out of his castmate.  And director.  And producer.  And executive producer.  And whoever those key grip and best boy people are.

Jennifer Ehle is quite attractive.  I'll see it for her.

Although, it's odd that they got a 40-something year old actress to play a young, naive, virgin.

That's "great writing" by someone who started off producing twilight fan fiction. I really hate this world.

You'll never go broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

If they don't get the movie out soon it will make a lot less money as the hype will be completely over by then.

Christian grey is fine, afaict. I'm no writer though, so I wouldn't necessarily know if a name is not allowed for publishing :)

Anastasia Steele seems pretty bad though.

so she's not in the move

she did admit to not reading the best-selling erotica trilogy before excepting the role.

From what I here, 50 Shades WAS twilight fan-fic until someone decided it could be published and the names were changed and the supernatural shiat was published.    The idea  that there could be poorly written fan-fic of something as already badly written as Twilight make the nascent writer in me shudder...and want to give up writing my own stuff because CLEARLY I have no idea what makes a good book, or at least a successful one

They actually have programs that will do 90% of the work of generating a standard 100-page Harlequin romance.

Provide some names, some locations, some professions, and a couple of crises, and it will generate a draft. Then a human writer just patches up any rough spots.

Who knew a Scotsman could play a Lithuanian so seamlessly?

I know, I know, welcometofark.jpeg

I do have a confession: My name is Sovietski, and I read the first half of the first Twilight book. I couldn't take any more sparkles and "ermahgerd I lerve him" nonsense and returned it to my aghast and horrified friend. There. I typed it.

I consider it a low moment in my reading repertoire. My currently-in-the-5th-book of Longmire series self should go back in time and kick the see-what-the-Twilight-fuss-is-about self's ass.

Connery very rarely played a Scotsman. He was English, Irish, a Spaniard, an Egyptian, an American and an alien from a place called Zeist. He's played a Scotsman a few times but no one ever asked him to change his accent for any role.

Lol.

I always figured it was along the lines of, "he's Sean Connery", ultimately receiving a lifetime exemption from Dialect Coach 101 for a movie. Because James Bond and reasons.

Therefore.
Warrior code.

actually, when you think about it, it is absurd to deliver lines in English in the "foregin" accent of the country your character is supposed to be from, especially if you are talking to others of your same nationality.   Ramius was a Russian speaking Russian to other Russians.   Having him adopt a "Russian" accent to deliver those lines in English is a silly convention of stage and screen.  Now say in Highlander having him play an Egyptian/Spaniard who spoke English in a Scottish accent is bit strange, but no more than having a "highlander" who spoke with a Breton-French accent (or when you think about it having a French character named John-Luc Picard deliver lines with the accent of a Lowlands Scot with classical training)

Craig Ferguson does a great bit about how all Roman emperors sound like upper-crust Brits.  "Helllooo, I'm Caeeeesaah. Would you like some Roman tea and Roman crumpets?"  Can't find a clip at the moment...

Agreed.

Like in Gladiator, where most (if not all) of the "Latin"-speaking parts were delivered in British accents. Because historians know what a Latin accent sounded like, ya know?

First world problems I suppose.

I think we do have some pointers for that, given the rather vast amount of Latin texts. You can deduce a lot from poems etc, and extrapolate from successor languages.

Didn't Catullus basically make fun of someone for inserting needless "h"-sounds into his words, thus becoming the earliest source Family Guy ripped off?
