Joe Wright Wanted For “Fifty Shades”

“Atonement” and “Anna Karenina” director Joe Wright has reportedly emerged as a strong contender to direct the film adaptation of E.L. James’ best-seller “Fifty Shades of Grey” for Focus Features and Universal Pictures.

Wright has a pre-existing relationship with the studios where he’s made his last four films. While no deal is in place as yet, Wright would appear to be the favorite at present.

Kelly Marcel is adapting the screenplay for the film which Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are producing.
