Fifty Shades of Grey

Story by Jack Foley

MARK Bomback, who penned the script for summer blockbuster The Wolverine, has been drafted into polish the script for Sam Taylor-Wood’s Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the scribe has been brought in for yet another ‘polish’, following in the footsteps of Oscar-nominated screenwriter Patrick Marber, who worked on a previous polish.

The move comes as the production start date on the film has been pushed back a month to early December in light of recent cast changes.

Charlie Hunnam, who was to have played the title role of Christian Grey, departed the project two weeks ago and was replaced last week by Jamie Dornan.

Fifty Shades of Grey is the keenly-anticipated adaptation of the EL James erotic novel. It is still scheduled for a release in the summer of 2014.

Bomback’s other screenwriting credits include the Total Recall remake, Unstoppable, Race to Witch Mountain and Live Free or Die Hard.
