Lit Movie Tidbit: Fifty Shades

Unclutch your pearls, loosen your nun collar, and pour a glass of Red Moscato. By now, you should have heard about the smutty, passionate, erotic fiction trilogy Fifty Shades by E. L. James. It started off as fan fiction then bloomed into its own set of characters and story line.

The movie rights sold to Universal Studios and Focus Films for a rumored $5 million. Casting news and rumors are hitting the internet. So far, Twilight's Kristen Stewart may play the main character, Anastasia Steele. Of course Twihard fans would love to see Kristen's Twilight co-star and real-life boyfriend, Robert Pattinson play Christian Grey. (I disagree with this choice. Keep Bella & Edward out of this!) There is another sexy guy interested in playing the role of Mr. Grey: True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard. (Listen. Do you hear the sizzle of hotness?) 

These are interesting casting picks. I'll keep you updated on the rumors and official news of the movie.

Also, I'm moving this trilogy up on my TBR list. Check back here soon for my reviews of this trilogy on my Series Sunday meme. Share your thoughts if you're currently reading or already read this bestselling series.
