‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Movie Writer Kelly Marcel Talks E.L. James, Sam Taylor-Johnson Conflict

The British writer and screenplay writer of the erotic drama “Fifty Shades of Grey” has finally opened up about her exit and the painful process of getting the movie on the screens on time. Kelly Marcel, 41, who has previously written screenplay of 2013 drama film “Saving Mr. Banks,” has revealed that she still hasn’t seen her movie “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Kelly Marcel appeared on Bret Easton Ellis’s podcast earlier this week and talked a lot about her exit and the reason behind why she hasn’t watched the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” yet. According to Kelly Marcel, she feels heartbroken and had felt like a cog in the whole process. She cannot watch the movie as what she has written and what had been on the screens are very different and to her it’s going to be very difficult to not feel any pain while watching “Fifty Shades of Grey.”


There had been many unfortunate incidents on clarity, Kelly Marcel was asked to feel and write the whole screenplay as she likes but ended up having E. L. James sit with her over the weeks writing the story side-by-side. Kelly Marcel painfully accepted that Erika (E. L. James) had all the control over the screenplay and the movie and the final draft came out as a compromise to Kelly.

In her talks on Bret Easton Ellis’s podcast, Kelly Marcel also talked about the whole E.L. James, Sam Taylor-Johnson conflict. She addressed the whole issue as lagging of the shoots. Kelly shared that Sam Taylor-Johnson was not given full creative license as the author was given full control of the film.
