Fifty shades film
Fifty Shades of Grey

Terra Nova co-creator Kelly Marcel has been hired to pen the highly anticipated movie adaptation of erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

The book, written by E.L. James, recently became the fastest-selling paperback of all time and earlier this year bosses at Universal and Focus Features were planning to bring the tome to the big screen.

Now British star Marcel, who penned Tom Hanks' upcoming project about the production of Disney classic Mary Poppins, Saving Mr. Banks, has been tapped to write the script, The Social Network producer Michael De Luca told Variety.

Casting for the romantic thriller, which follows the exploits of kinky lovers Anastasia Steele and billionaire businessman Christian Grey, has not yet been revealed.
