“E.L. [James] was there every day,” Dana Brunetti of the author’s participation in the movie. “She was very hands-on. To have the author there definitely makes it pretty faithful.”

As for book two as a movie: “I have no idea yet. We haven’t even started discussing that yet. We just want to get this one wrapped and get it cut. We’ll see the cut, see how it goes, and once it’s released, we’ll start discussing what happens next.”

Fifty Shades Producers: There Will Be TWO Versions of the Movie

vanilla and chocolate

By A. Charlotte Rose

Fifty Shades of Grey, the movie, will be available in two flavors, according Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy, an official fan page for the books.

Sounds like one version will be a little more vanilla and the other, chocolate sundae with rocky road and a cherry on top!

‘What we’re kind of hearing from the fans is they want it dirty… they want it as close as possible [to the book],’ said producer Dana Brunetti, who says he has been listening to the demands of the book’s female followers on Twitter.

And we all know that the books are very explicit as they take us into the bedroom, the Red Room, the Audi, the boat, and Ana’s apartment for super hot sex, good loving, and lots of BDSM activities that range from restraints, spankings, and butt plugs… to other sexy moments that include oral sex, shower sex, masturbation, and more.

Apparently we liked reading those things because the reading public bought about 90,000 copies of the book and kept it on the best seller list forever.

The idea is the first version of the film will be a tad more vanilla, getting an R rating. It will be accessible in America to anyone 17 and over.

The more explicit version could get an NC-17 rating, which reportedly is reserved for films depicting rape or drug use. They used to call it an “X” rating. And we all know that Fifty is Triple XXX in some parts!

Brunetti was quoted in Mail Online as saying: “Everybody could go and enjoy the R version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it then have that NC-17 version out there as well. That is my idea, but the fans and the studio [Universal Pictures] will benefit from the double dip…”

What of you think of this idea for two scoops of Fifty Shades of Grey, the movie?

‘Fifty Shades’ Fans Want Explicit Sex Scenes, Says Producer Dana Brunetti

Jamie hot

How hot will the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaption be?

Producer Dana Brunetti discussed how sexually explicit the Fifty Shades film may be in an interview with Collider.com.

“It’ll be R, obviously it has to be R,” he told Collide.com.

Yet he suggested there may be other creative ways to make sure the movie is as hot, hot, hot as fans want it to be!

“This is just my opinion and this doesn’t mean this is going to happen, but I always thought it would be really cool if we released the R version and then we had an NC-17 version that we released a few weeks later,” he was quoted as saying. “So everybody could go and enjoy the R version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it then have that NC-17 version out there as well.”

“It’d be great for the studio too because they’d get a double dip on the box office,” he said.

And fans want it to be hot!

“What we’re kind of hearing from the fans is they want it dirty, they want it as close as possible [to the book],” he said. “We want to keep it elevated but also give the fans what they want.”

‘Fifty Shades’ Producer Dana Brunetti Discusses Casting Challenges with Collider.com

Dana Brunetti

Fifty Shades of Grey producer Dana Brunetti discussed casting difficulties in an interview with Collider.com.

Here are some excerpts:

You can’t please all of the people, all of the time. “No matter who we cast, people were gonna be angry about it. And then we obviously had the one that we cast that ultimately didn’t work out. We have to meet the ideas of the fans to an extent and make them happy—although you’re not gonna make them happy because they’re thinking of somebody else in their mind.”

Unknown actors will help fans all get to know Christian and Ana together. And I always thought it would be better if we went with somebody unknown so then everyone can discover them together, that’s where I really think we are now with Jamie and Dakota.”

You can’t always get the actors who are your first choice. “You have to get actors that really want to do it as well, and that was a really difficult process because a lot of them didn’t want to do it just because of what they either thought that it would require or what it will require, or what it will make them into; it’s gonna make them into huge stars but known [for] a certain thing. So some actors might not be able to break out of that in their career when they wanna do other projects either in between the productions of the [Fifty Shades] films or beyond the films.”
