“Fifty Shades of Grey” Film Won’t Lack Raunchy Sex – Will Receive NC-17 Rating!

"Fifty Shades of Grey" Film Won't Lack Raunchy Sex - Will Receive NC-17 Rating!

It looks like the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey may not be for everybody, quite literally. Kelly Marcel has taken on the task of penning the screenplay for the first film of the series and according to her, it is going to have to have an NC-17 rating. She says they are absolutely going to push all of the limits and go as far as possible to truly bring the mega popular book to life.

That seems to me like the only way that a book based on the BDSM lifestyle can ever make it to the big screen. Let’s face it, Fifty Shades is all about the raunchy sex and if the powers-that-be choose to water it down it’s going to be an absolute box office flop. They have to make it rival the books in terms of the really edgy sex play.

Kelly also clues in fans to the fact that while everyone is asking about who will play Christian and Ana, the roles will not be cast until the script is totally finished. So as long as she’s still working on it, all of those casting rumors really are just rumors. Kelly hasn’t tipped her hand at all as to who she sees as the lead characters either.

Do you think Fifty Shades of Grey, NC-17 rated, will influence which actors test for the roles? Do you think some of the better known names will shy away from doing a film with a rating that admits things are a bit raunchier than the public is used to seeing? Or does it make sense that a film that is going to accurately portray this alternative lifestyle would require a different rating if it really is aiming to be authentic? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

    For it to be authentic like the book it needs to have the adults only classification. The book is extremely raunchy and the sex scenes play a big part in it. If the movie is played down to suit a wider audience then it will lose its authenticity. I can’t wait for the movie to come out. I know who I would like to play the characters of Christain and Ana, but whoever is casted to play the roles needs to feel comfortable being naked in it and play them convincingly.

    Please keep FIFTY authentic. It has such an amazing love story, and the kinky stuff is where their passion for each other gets stronger and stronger. I cant wait until we find out what bad boy will play Christian. I will be so mad if its a PG love story. Thank you

    Thank heavens!!! If they weren’t given the flexibility that rating offers to be able to “push limits” they wouldn’t be able to authentically communicate the feeling of the story or its characters. They would be a laughing stock! I don’t care if big name actors shy away from the rating because they think it’s too risky, as long as the actors chosen can accurately portray the characters of the books.

    The movie has to be like the book, down to every detail;) The hot sex is what kept me into the book. I’m not reader at all, that is until the 50 series. I read them in no time. it kept me wanting more. I feel the movie has to live up to the books, as well as the actors chosen to play Christian & Ana. My vote for Mr. Grey, goes to Stephen Amell. No hotter out there:):)

    Ian Somerhalder is the one who could perfectly fit in the role! Just search for his filmography! He is the one!!!

    I think if they aren’t going to make a good movie out of the books then some porn producer should make the x rated film..
