'Fifty Shades' movie adds a mother

Now that the initial furor over "Fifty Shades of Grey's" casting has died down, the movie is adding to its ranks.

Jennifer Ehle, who you last saw in "Zero Dark Thirty," has been tapped to join "Fifty Shades" as the mother of Anastasia Steele, according to Deadline.

The role of Anastasia, the naive college student who finds herself in a steamy relationship with a good-looking billionaire by the name of Christian Grey, has controversially already been handed to Dakota Johnson. Anastasia's mother, Carla, is described as flighty, flirtatious and on her fourth marriage.

Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, "Fifty Shades of Grey" will also star "Sons of Anarchy" actor Charlie Hunnam as the charismatic Grey. The movie's set to debut on August 1, 2014.

    It's gotta be NC-17.

      To faithfully adapt the book, it must be X. A bold maneuver, mainstreaming p0rn into pop culture. Shoot, if Miley Cyrus can do what she did during prime time, the viewing audience is prepared! Pray tell, someone who read the book: Does this mother role involve nudity or intimacy?

      No way to do this book justice without an X rating.

      NC-17 is the new X. They don't use X anymore. They would only use it for blatant porn but they don't apply for ratings.
