Well, I’ll say this: I fucking hope so, considering! First of all, the 50 Shades of Grey movie is going to be an absolute disaster. The book was a disaster (and – on principle as an intelligent human being who has a better imagination than that in a modified piece of Twilight porn – I absolutely refused to read it) and the movie will follow suit. That being said, it will make MILLIONS from desperate middle-aged housewives whose husbands aren’t exciting them sexually anymore, and Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson must be seeing the dollar signs in their eyes – they’re going to be filthy rich.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“As soon as we got in the room and started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us,” Hunnam told The Hollywood Reporter and handful of reporters. “It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it.”
“I went and read the first book to get a clearer idea of who this character was, and felt even more excited about the prospect of bringing him to life.”
Oh, I bet it was “exciting”. I bet the idea of S&M – so long as you’re in the “S” bracket – is super “compelling” and really gets you going. Not that I’m insinuating that Charlie Hunnam is some kind of sadist sicko in real life, as I’m sure this is all about the money he stands to make (don’t forget, this is a trilogy). However, it just seems like icing on the cake that he gets to film a bunch of raunchy sex scenes in which he’s in control of a woman. I dunno, I’m probably just being a pessimist – wouldn’t be the first time, admittedly.
So, Evil Beeters… do any of you actually LIKE this series? If so, can you explain to me the fucking point? Because I just honestly don’t get it in the slightest. Maybe I need to kickstart my own porn writing career, only mine would be a steamy re-telling of The X-Files instead of Twilight. Mulder and Scully? I mean, er… Roberts and Williams? Oh yeah, they’re freaky.
