CONFIRMED: 50 Shades Of Grey Movie Release Date Revealed And Here Are 6 Other Details We've Heard

UPDATE: Exciting news people - the 50 Shades of Grey movie is coming really soon. In fact, it might even be in cinemas as early as next year! Now, we know that 2014 doesn't sound imminent but considering the final cast still hasn't been revealed yet, filming hasn't even started so actually that's pretty good going. The chairman of Universal Pictures Adam Fogelson, the studio who've signed up the worldwide smash hit from E.L. James said, 'I certainly understand why some people might take that point of view. But I don’t believe that [author E.L. James] had any interest in going to a studio where rushing it into production was the vision. I don’t believe that the second or third film would have benefited from that strategy. And I think that there are totally legitimate questions about what this book is as a movie. I will tell you that it is an absolute priority for us. It’s conceivable that we could be ready to release it as early as next summer.'

Most recently, the film's screenwriter Kelly Marcel revealed to The Sunday Times that it is going to be as true to the book’s explicit sex scenes as possible. 'It’s going to be raunchy,' Marcel says of the film, which may very well get an NC-17 rating in the US - that's an 18 to us Brits. So what else have we heard about the film so far? We've rounded up the details, you know, just in case you’ve been living in a cave or something...

1. Mila Kunis to play Anastacia Steele?

There have been no confirmed castings. Yet. But the twittersphere, blogosphere and every other medium has gone speculation crazy. So far, Mila Kunis seems to be the frontrunner. But, we’re not convinced the super hot actress is in fact the right choice to play the naïve and unassuming PLAIN Ana. One thing is for sure, if she lands the leading role she will look damn fine in the buff.

2. Kelly Marcel will write the screenplay

Bret Easton Ellis was a front-runner at one point but British screenwriter Kelly Marcel has been confirmed as the choice to adapt 50 Shades for the big screen. In fact, she’s already been holed up in La La land with E.L. James adapting the novel. She’s worked on Terra Nova with Spielberg, did the rewrite on Bronson and is like, bezzie mates with Tom Hardy.

3. Who will play Christian Grey?

Everyone from Ryan Gosling to Michael Fassbender has been mentioned as a potential Christian Grey but one person in particular has sparked controversy. Matt Bomer (star of White Collar) is a firm favourite among fans but the fact that he is openly gay has led to some comments that he might not be convincing. Erm, that’s why it’s called acting, right?! Ian Somerhalder of Vampire Diaries fame is also in the running alongside Man of Steel Henry Cavill and real life porn star James Dean.

4. It will be super sexy

In the Sunday Times interview, Kelly Marcel dished on the sex scenes. 'We are 100% going there. We did go through and decide which ones are our favourites and which are not. Most of them are in there, but I can’t say more than that.' Ooh, tantalising. While adapting the novel, discussions included whether to mention the use of a *ahem* fist (in the book, the maid stops short in horror when she hears Ana and Christian discussing this) and it will almost certainly have an 18 rating in the UK. Sooo not one to watch with your parents then.

5. Random House employees got an extra bonus

The writing has been criticised, it’s been dubbed ‘mummy porn’ by many and even we grew a little tiresome of the number of ‘oh my’s’ but publishers Random House are positively gleeful over the success of 50 Shades of Grey, giving employees a rumoured $5,000 holiday bonus at the end of last year.

6. Angelina Jolie has been rumoured to direct

While Universal Pictures, the studio behind the movie, have denied approaching Ange, it doesn’t stop everyone and their dog from speculating about her involvement. But, after her directorial debut last year In The Land of Blood and Honey set in war torn Bosnia, we reckon it’s unlikely her second project will be such a swing in the opposite direction.

Leilanie Bino (Tue Jan 08 15:34:49 GMT 2013): UNCOORDINATED FALL PRONE & ACCIDENT MAGNET AS EDWARD SAID , TWO LEFT FEET AS JACOB SAID. ARE ALL WHAT CHRISTIAN SAID TO ANASTACIA WHEN HE SAID STAY CLEAR MY WAY - READ TWILIGHT & 50 SHADES.
Leilanie Bino (Tue Jan 08 15:36:27 GMT 2013): wHY ANGELINA JOLIE - NOT JODIE FOSTER?
Leilanie Bino (Tue Jan 08 15:40:59 GMT 2013): ROB KNOWS HOW TO PLAY PIANO BESIDES THE LOOKS. HE IS SO CLOSED OFF AS A PERSON VERY PRIVATE CHRISTIAN GREY IS WITH HIS LIFESTYLES. THE 50 SHADES IS MADE FOR BELLA & EDWARD. THE ARE THE PERFECT AGE. WITH HIS LIFESTYLE.
Daphne Williams (Tue Jan 08 17:08:28 GMT 2013): Henry Cavill Yes, Mila Kunis definately NO, she looks too old for this part.
Pauline Reeves (Tue Jan 08 22:12:46 GMT 2013): The book was written with rob in mind. Beg him to consider the roll once more his hair his eyes plays piano He is the right age no one else could do it .all the others in the running are to old
Irys Klaus (Wed Jan 09 07:20:34 GMT 2013): Yes to Henry, he's the only perfect choice for Christian! No to Kunis, is too tanned, too old, too aggressive beauty, she has really nothing like Ana...Ana is pale, young, innocent, a soap and water girl. I would love India Eisley for the role of Ana, since she's playing the young Jolie in "Maleficent" than they can be both in the movie, India as Ana and Angelina as director.
Anna L. Ortiz (Wed Jan 09 19:45:02 GMT 2013): As much as I love Mila I think she doesn't fit the part, I would love to see Emma Stone play Ms. Ana, she seems perfect to me!
Sahira Naz (Wed Jan 09 20:10:41 GMT 2013): this movie is going to suck bad if mila plays its! there is no innocence too her face sombody like emmy rosumm should play this role.

Jessica Powell (Mon Apr 08 19:51:26 BST 2013): Lucy hale and ian! Too bad selena gomez is a disney star her innocents would be perfect and it be different to see her play a different kind of role

Chase Lawless (Sun May 05 18:35:50 BST 2013): Guys, you do know that just about all (If NOT all) of the "trailers" on youtube are fan made right? They've used clips from television shows and commercials to put together very convincing trailers.
Dawn Farias (Tue May 07 05:28:23 BST 2013): Ian Somerhalder is the best choice to play Christian Grey, but I don't know about mila
Krissy Tapley (Tue May 07 06:07:56 BST 2013): Honestly I think Ian Somerhalder would be excellent for this part. Normally I would definitely pick Mila Kunis for this but she doesn't look so innocent... Maybe Megan Fox or Kristen Stewart from twilight. But Mila if in any sense I could see her in this role but doesn't look so innocent. either way as long as Angelina Jolie doesn't direct it this movie will be awesome!!! I can't wait to see it!!!
Raven Tercero (Sun May 12 06:54:05 BST 2013): Need someone who looks more innocent to play this role if you want the movie to be close to the book
Dawn Farias (Mon May 13 20:08:49 BST 2013): If Ian doesn't get the part of Christian Grey honestly I won't watch it. He is super hot and so dam sexy, he is perfect for Christian
Jamie Dolly (Wed May 22 20:01:47 BST 2013): I honestly think Ian should be christian grey..one hes freaken hot, hes very conviencing, he can be a total dick to the max or the sexiest sweet dark and handsome guy he should be in more movies..then just vampire diaries and the other movies hes stared in...and I definately think Mila should be the Ana girl...i hope you make the right choice...id hate to see a good movie ruined..specially for us that like bdsm after all that is what the hidden side is..cant wait...to watch this movie...my and my fiance are rooting for it so get on with it already!
Kayla Gilbert (Wed May 29 19:27:28 BST 2013): so when is it coming?
Miletovic Biljana (Wed Jun 12 11:58:02 BST 2013): WE WANT MOVIE ASAP SO MANY OF US CAN NOT WAIT TO HIT THE CINEMAS. OFCOURSE SHOULD BE 18+ BECAUSE IT IS ROMANTICK MOVIE THAT IS ALL ABOUT , AND WOULD BE NICE IF YOU DIVIDED INTO 3 LIKE 3 BOOKS.THANKS.
Teresa Garrett (Sun Jul 07 17:06:41 BST 2013): Angelina Jolie would be an awesome Mrs. Robinson
Luzy Rodriguez (Tue Aug 20 00:35:25 BST 2013): Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel Make the Perfect cast for 50 shades of grey!
