Coming Soon: ''Fifty Shades of Grey" movie

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- You knew this was coming. A movie will be made of "Fifty Shades of Grey."

The producers of "The Social Network" will adapt the book that women all over the world are reading.

They haven't cast the lead roles of the rich businessman and the college student he has an S-and-M relationship with.

i absolutly love the books and i cant wait for the movie to come out. these books kept me on the edge of my seat, i wonder if the movie will. i dont understand how they are going to rate the movie, and how they are going to be able to get to each scene because it gets very detailed in the book..if you know what i mean lol

I have no interest in the books and even less interest in the movies.

Not sure what this story is saying. We've known for a while they are making the series into movies. Are you suggesting they will be filming it in Wilmington?d

The story says nothing. The local news stations can't fill their websites with local news so they fill them with national news, news that has no relevence to south eastern North Carolina or "stories" such as this; tidbits of information from another publication that do not have any real news value or reporting associated with it.

Wilmington Observer - you don't think local people have read this book - or might be interested that they're making a movie about it?

Might not be "local" news per se, but it seems to be interesting to the 2,800+ people who read the story, many of whom are probably "local."

50 Shades was the fastest print novel to sell one million copies, with another million for the Kindle, alone. That is much more than 2,800.

As for the part of my post that, actually, referred to this story, "tidbits of information from another publication that do not have any real news value or reporting associated with it." No comments regarding the originality or lack of reporting, other than the "tidbit" of borrowed information? It is, much, more than probable that there are more than 2,600 readers right here in the Wilmington area. Actually, there are retail establishments that can't keep certain items (mentioned in the book) on their shelves.

It would not have taken much to turn this (53 word) non-story, into a headliner; just a reporter with a little imagination, gumption and the ability to find a story.
