"Fifty Shades of Grey" has received its share of upheavals recently, the most critical being the loss of Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey. Now more changes have been made to the production but fans should know its all in the benefit of the film, which Team Fifty wants to ensure is of good quality. According to The Hollywood Reporter on Oct 28, the film's "start date has been pushed about a month." There are also script re-writes in the works by Mark Bomback, the screenwriter for "The Wolverine."
All these changes for "Fifty Shades of Grey" can be chalked up to E L James' desire to make the best film possible, at any expense. Producers Michael De Luca and Dand Brunetti also have their fingers on the pulse of Hollywood and know how to make great films. Simply look at their track records, with films such as "The Social Network," "21" and the critically acclaimed "Captain Phillips." The production powerhouse chose "Fifty Shades of Grey" because they believed in it and knew they could make a film people wanted to see.
Although it appears fans may just have to wait a little longer to see it. Filming has been pushed back from Nov. 13 to Dec 2, meaning that with any more hiccups or delays, the release date of Aug 1, 2014, could be moved as well. The current date that "Fifty Shades" will hit the big screen is the same as "Guardians of the Galaxy," a film starring Marvel characters. So Team Fifty may choose to alter the release date simply to avoid a run-off with the late Summer blockbuster.
