'Fifty Shades' screenwriter's thinking NC-17

It looks like if screenwriter Kelly Marcel gets her way, "Fifty Shades of Grey" will be as "adult" as readers have hoped.

The writer, who was brought on to pen the script for Universal's adaptation of the S&M-themed best-seller last year, recently told the U.K.'s Sunday Times that she wants to make sure "Fifty Shades'" steaminess remains intact.

“It will be rated NC-17," Marcel said, via EW. "It will be raunchy.”

Universal isn't as convinced. In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, a spokesperson said that, with the screenplay still unwritten, the "Fifty Shades" adaptation doesn't have a designated rating yet.

      This is the Basic Instinct of the early 2000's and just as lame.

    I admire everything you have achieved here. I take pleasure in the section where people say one does this to convey back but We'd assume by every one of the comments which can be helping you as effectively. Do you will have any more info on this?

    Good luck... Unless this film is produced and funded outside the US that simply won't happen. Hollywood/LA hasn't got the b*lls to produce a serious NC-17 film, for crying outload, they made Kubrick cut his film (Eyes Wide Shut) to avoid an NC-17 and he was Kubrick, the man the legend.... If this is an American film, the best this writer can hope for will be a strong "R" rating.

    The only difference between this book and any other junky adult-rated fiction is the amount of marketing that backed it.
