Producer wants an NC-17 version of 'Fifty Shades of Grey'
Rejoice, ladies, for if producer Dana Brunetti has his way with his "mommy porn” flick, Fifty Shades of Grey could be rated NC-17. Wait, you mean the movie based on a bondage bestseller that dabbles in sadomasochism isn’t kosher for the kiddos?
Brunetti tells Collider the erotic film starring Dakota Watson and Jamie Dornan will debut as R-rated, but he said it would be cool if “everybody could go and enjoy the R version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it then have that NC-17 version out there as well. It’d be great for the studio too because they’d get a double dip.” Double dip! So. Many. Jokes.
Fifty Shades, currently shooting in Vancouver and featuring musician Rita Ora as Christian Grey's sister, according to The Hollywood Reporter, could give creators the best of both worlds: They can inflict the toned-down (read: boring) version upon the mainstream, and then make even more paper by catering to hardcore fans of the sexually explicit. Like they say, sex sells. So filthy, filthy sex must sell like ten-fold right?
