THE WOLVERINE's Mark Bomback to Work on FIFTY SHADES OF GREY Script
FIFTY SHADES OF GREY is set for a little clean up.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mark Bomback, who recently penned THE WOLVERINE starring Hugh Jackman, has signed on to polish the script, originally written by Kelly Marcel. Oscar-nominated Patrick Marber was previously brought on for a once-over.
As reported earlier today, production on the FIFTY SHADES film has been pushed back to December 2nd. The month-long postponent may now affect the planned released date of the film of August 1, 2014.
A parital cause in the delay may very well have been the re-casting of the lead role of Christian Grey. The film's original star Charlie Hunnam dropped out for personal reasons. Sons of Anarchy star Jamie Dornan will now take his place opposite Dakota Johnson, set to play Anastasia Steele. Last week it was announced that True Blood star Luke Grimes will portray Elliot Grey, the brother of Christian.
Sam Taylor-Johnson will helm the film, based upon EL James' racy best-selling novel.
Bomback, who's primarily penned action films, has also written LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD, the 2012 remake of TOTAL RECALL, UNSTOPPABLE, and more. He also recently wrote the script for and helmed DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, due out in 2014.
