Kelly Marcel, the writer of the film adaption of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” revealed how disappointed she was on how the movie turned out. According to Jezebel, Kelly Marcel sat down with Bret Easton Ellis on his podcast and discussed her devastation of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Kelly Marcel is widely famous for writing “Saving Mr. Banks” and upon reading “Fifty Shades of Grey,” she thought that the there was something very interesting about the movie. According to her, she didn’t want the film to be linear. She wanted to begin the film by showing the climax of the story and to run the entire film in the flashes.


“You know, because we had a problem in the third act, I felt like if you moved times that might help the situation. I wanted to take the ‘inner goddess’ out, and you know, all of [Ana’s] inner monologue,” she said.

But things took a different route when Kelly Marcel realized that the author of “Fifty Shades of Grey” E.L. James had to be pleased. As one of the most famous scriptwriters of Hollywood, Kelly Marcel wanted to play with the screenplay and at the very earlier stages, the studio and the producers gave her the green signal.

“Yeah, absolutely this is what we want. You can write anything you like and get crazy and artistic with it,” said the studio to Kelly but as it turned out, the entire script of “Fifty Shades of Grey” came out the way the book is written, thanks to E.L. James.
