UPDATE: Universal just made this official. The studio release is at the bottom of the original break.

BREAKING: Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam has officially been set to play Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, the Universal Pictures and Focus Features adaptation of the runaway bestselling book series. Hunnam, who had been rumored for weeks, more recently starred in the Guillermo Del Toro-directed Pacific Rim. Author EL James made the casting official on her Twitter page. Sam Taylor-Johnson is directing a script by Kelly Marcel and Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are producing along with the author.

Pseudo-smut for housewives who are bored in the bedroom but don't want anything edgier than you would find at Walmart. Wonderful.  8)

Had to look her up on Google. Her face sort of reminds me of Gillian Anderson somewhat.

Possibly the wrong sort of 'christian' news ...

I can't believe how many women fall for this kind of trash. First, we had all the vampire books and movie nonsense marketed to young girls. Then they aim this 50 shades of hell to middle-aged women. Our pop culture is complete garbage.

Except that I can believe it. Never underestimate Babylon's desire for the lowest common denominator.

A fanfic is being made into a movie.

The last standard has been breached.

Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Thank you.

We survived Twilight, we will survive 50 Shades too.

This is how I imagine that the 50 Shades series was birthed:  high school girl picks up the book "The story of O."  It impresses her quite a bit.  In University freshman composition class, her assignment is to write a novella of whatever topic.  So 50 Shades is born of teenage misunderstanding, poor storytelling, and zero knowledge of what Seattle is like.  And that's 50 Shades.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

I wish. Really.

If the author had read O, she would have begun to understood BDSM.

I'm not convinced she's been to university. If she had, her heroine wouldn't be an English major of the 21st century who doesn't know how to use a computer.

50 Shades is basically Twilight with the numbers filed off. Take out the vampires, and all you're left with is a disturbingly abusive relationship.

I'm pretty sure she at least went to English 101.  No student in those classes are any good.  I know I was pretty horrible.  I've heard of the Twilight angle plenty and I don't disagree with it at all.  Both series are worthless.  But at least people are reading, right?  (insert sarcasm) ::)

When someone suggests I read 50 Shades, I suggest they read Kushiel's Legacy. Half of those who pick it up give up because it's too 'lit' and doesn't get to the smut quickly enough; the other half cry their eyes out and are hooked.
