The Fifty Shades of Grey movie's screenwriter, Kelly Marcel, is back in the news, and you would HOPE/think the reason would be that she's officially done writing her adaptation of E.L. James' book. But noooo. Instead, she's making headlines for her next project, which will likely be rewriting The Little Mermaid for director Joe Wright. Yep, same Joe Wright behind Pride & Prejudice who was rumored (for a nanosecond, basically) to be up for the Fifty Shades directing gig.
You might think, eh -- she was bound to get another job lined up eventually. What's the big deal? Well, for Fifty Shades fans, Marcel's next gig feels like, at the least, annoying news. At the worst, it's actually a worrisome sign.
