It's Official: Universal Set to Adapt '50 Shades of Grey'
[Editor's Note: Universal has snapped up Fifty Shades of Grey in anticipation of a movie adaptation of the X-rated Novel. I for one, can't wait to see the end result. Have you read it? Will you watch? --Morgan]
Ending the wildest book-to-movie auction in recent and distant memory, Universal Pictures and Focus Features have acquired screen rights to E.L. James’ steamy novel Fifty Shades Of Grey. Focus Features will market and distribute the film in partnership with Universal, whose co-chairman Donna Langley heavily pursued the book.
