Avid Fifty Shades of Grey fans will be thrilled to hear this.
The moment readers learned that the E L James erotic novel was being adapted into a movie, a number of questions came up: Who will be Christian Grey? Who will be Anastasia Steele? And how on earth are they going to portray all that sex on the big screen?!
Well, we all now know that hunky Hollywood actor Jamie Dornan and the beautiful Dakota Johnson will play the leading roles, and although we don't have a definite answer for the last question, producer Dana Brunetti sheds some light on just how racy the flick will be.
During an interview with Collider, Brunetti dished that the film will most-definitely have an R-rating, but there might just be another release especially for the fans that are hoping for a no-holds-barred version.
"It'll be R, obviously it has to be R. This is just my opinion and this doesn't mean this is going to happen, but I always thought it would be really cool if we released the R version and then we had an NC-17 version that we released a few weeks later," he explained.
"So everybody could go and enjoy the R version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it then have that NC-17 version out there as well. It'd be great for the studio too because they'd get a double dip on the box office…What we're kind of hearing from the fans is they want it dirty, they want it as close as possible [to the book]. We want to keep it elevated, but also give the fans what they want."
With that said, however, Brunetti adds that the team working on the film also want to bring a bit of tastefulness to the table.
"We've been able to attract fantastic team as far as our department heads, everyone that's gotten involved have very good resumes," he said. "Which I think is shocking to a lot of people who label it ‘mommy porn' or say ‘it's gonna be trash,' I think the team that we're assembling should be already deafening that."
Brunetti will produce the Sam Taylor-Johnson-helmed movie with his partner Michael De Luca. Shooting is slated to begin in Vancouver on Dec. 2.
Fifty Shades of Grey will hit theaters Feb. 15, 2015.
