It was only a matter of time before the steamy Fifty Shades of Grey novel was turned into a movie.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the producers who worked together on the Social Network are coming together to bring the best selling novel to life on the big screen.
“At its core, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is a complex love story, requiring a delicate and sophisticated hand to bring it to the big screen,” said Universal co-chairman Donna Langley in a statement.

Universal Pictures bought the rights to the novels in March for $5 million and now that they have the production team in place, the speculation of who will be cast can begin.

The book is on its way to selling over 20 million copies in the U.S. since its release in March and millions of fans are anxious to find out who will play the main characters in the film. One thing is for sure, the lusty scenes from the novel are sure to have movie goers hot and bothered in their local theaters.
