Who would have thought that "Wolverine" screenwriter, Mark Bomback would have to work his magic on "Fifty Shades of Grey?" Now, that's some different kind of magic involved. According to reports, Mark is set to "refurbish" the script before production begins on December 2, 2013.
After Charlie Hunnam's unexpected leave from the film adaptation, producers had to search for an immediate replacement. Thankfully, Calvin Klein model and actor, Jamie Dornan was available. Quite a lot of fans expressed joy over Dornan getting cast. Even the wife of producer Michael De Luca, Angelique De Luca, claims Dornan is the "perfect" Christian Grey compared to "Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam.
"To be honest, to me, [Charlie wasn't a great fit," said De Luca on her official Twitter account, to which she added, "He didn't have that CG [Christian Grey] demeanor inside or outside. CG exudes a certain sexual intensity that comes from his eyes. I just feel like that actor has to make us all feel it and it wasn't going to come from [Charlie Hunnam]."
Putting casting and comparisons aside, producers along with E.L. James are still on the search for the actress who could play the part of Kate Kavanagh. Over the weekend, the part of Elliot Grey was handed over to "True Blood" star, Luke Grimes to which Angelique De Luca had also approved of.
"Have you seen the Grey brother? They look great, don't they?" asked Twitter user @lilcaribou to which Luca replied with, "I totally agree!"
With casting for the lead parts almost done, a few final touches are being done on the script. Leave it to Mark Bomback to read through the script before production pushes through by December. In a report by MTV News, Bomback is said to add his "own distinct, teasing touch to the script."
For those who have yet heard of Mark Bomback, the scriptwriters notable works include "Wolverine," Live Free and Die Hard," "Unstoppable," "Total Recall" and "Deception." "Fifty Shades of Grey" is still set to premiere on the big screen by August 1, 2014 despite the setbacks in production.
