'Fifty Shades' casting backlash begins
Outraged fans have already started a petition to replace the newly appointed stars
I wish people would get a grip and let those in the biz do their job. The movie is about the story and is not a popularity contest for 'your' favorite actor. The people making these decisions get paid the big bucks for a reason. I am sure none of these "haters" has ever taken on the responsibility of being a casting director, producer or what not. Go back and read the book(s) and let them make the film!
@rtngrl - forgive me for being a man ... and I haven't read the books. This is my first troll BTW. All I ask is this: judging by the opinions of the scores of women ages 18-28 I work and live with, exactly how much "innocence" is required for this role in a film adaptation? Five minutes? Maybe twenty if the movie is 2 hours long and badly adapted? There is also no "spin" in a movie, dear (at least if it is based on a fictional pop book). "Spin" denotes the careful choice of facts to support an opinion. The producer was pretty "vanilla" in stating just plain normal facts about the trials and travails of casting a highly anticipated niche film adaptation of a bestseller. "Vanilla" denotes safe and non-confrontational.
I'm sorry if you cannot up-vote this. Honestly, check the IP. I simply have not trolled before. It's my first day.
@Flong777 - right on
