Bret Easton Ellis upset over Fifty Shades snub
Wed, 08 Aug 2012 12:52p.m.
American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis is disappointed to have been knocked out of the running to write the movie adaptation of saucy novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
The erotic book by E.L. James has taken the literary world by storm since its release last year and has been picked up by studio bosses to be made into a movie.
Ellis was one of the front runners to land the screenwriting job and even discussed who he would like to see playing the sex-mad lead characters, but he announced on Twitter on Tuesday that he has not been chosen to pen the project.
He writes, "It's a very major disappointment to announce that I've somehow been taken off the list of possible screenwriters for Fifty Shades of Grey...
"Thanks to the fans for the months of intense support. Your awesome enthusiasm and great suggestions were instructive and meaningful to me...
"I hope you find someone as passionate as I was about Fifty Shades of Grey. I will miss it. Moving on. Laters, baby..."
