The story, which was originally created as Twilight fanfiction - the erotic trilogy of Fifty Shades of Gray - has taken on a life of its own and has become more popular than the Stephenie Meyer saga.
Now, not only are films being made based on the erotic novel, but they are also making it part of the plot for a new film with Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton and Candice Bergen.
Deadline reports that a comedy will soon be released on the big screens, which will tell the story of three elderly ladies who fell into the hands of the bestseller "Fifty Shades of Gray", which changed their lives forever. “For these successful and intelligent women, this is not the type of book they usually read, but, as they will soon learn, inspiration can appear in the most unexpected places,” the synopsis of the film quotes the publication.
The film is directed by screenwriter Bill Holderman, for whom it will be the directorial debut.
Producers of June Pictures Andrew Duncan and Alex Sachs will work on the project. At the moment, the project is under preparation.
