Sony Makes A Grab For Fifty Shades Of Grey

March 24, 2012

Sony Pictures has made a $5 million offer for the film rights to the erotic E L James bookFifty Shades of Grey” says Variety.

What began as a posting on a fan-fiction website soon became a word-of-mouth eBook hit that won a major reprint deal with Random House.

The sexually-explicit story follows 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and 22-year-old virgin college student Anastasia Steele, who develop a relationship steeped in bondage, S&M, domination and submission. The novel is the first in a planned trilogy.

Though other studios are also hoping to nab the rights for the property, Sony film exec Amy Pascal is determined to see the rights land at her door.

James, a former TV executive and mother of two from London. is currently weighing all offers with a decision expected shortly.
