Fifty Shades of Dislike

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fifty Shades of Grey, the movie is slated for a possible summer 2014 release. Summer 2014? That's more than one year away. ONE WHOLE YEAR! For those of us anxiously awaiting to see the Christian Grey on the big screen, this seems like an eternity. More than an eternity. Universal Pictures chairman, Adam Fogelson had this to say during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
THR: Give us an update on the Fifty Shades movie. Some think you aren't moving quickly enough to capitalize on the buzz.
Fogelson: I certainly understand why some people might take that point of view. But I don't believe that [author EL James] had any interest in going to a studio where rushing it into production was the vision. I don't believe that the second or third film would have benefited from that strategy. And I think that there are totally legitimate questions about what this book is as a movie. I will tell you that it is an absolute priority for us. It's conceivable that we could be ready to release it as early as next summer.

THR: Is it true you asked Angelina Jolie to direct?
Fogelson: No. We're involved in a different project [the World War II drama Unbroken] with her. But we have had really, really interesting, great conversations with talented, serious filmmakers.
Say it ain't so, Adam! Say it ain't so! 

Millions of women all over the world are crawling into bed tonight with their Fifty Shades books and crying themselves to sleep.
