It's Labor Day weekend. Spark the barbecue, call your friends and family, and celebrate all the hard work you've done in the past year. You've excelled yourself. You've contributed to society, so it goes. You deserve a break. You deserve to soak in the unofficial final dwindling days of summer before embarking on the monotonous trek into winter once again. Enjoy the scattered sun and cool breeze as it grazes your sleeveless arm. It will be the last time to do so before the bitter autumn devours our bones. But most importantly, while your seated around your patio table, or huddling over a scorching grill, absorbing the wafts of summer's finest meats, remember that the "50 Shades of Grey" team will announce its official casting decisions following the weekend's celebrations, as rumors indicate.
Yes, it should be the hottest topic of conversation at your Labor Day bash. For the past year, ever since speculation of a "50 Shades" film first hit the airwaves, fans have drooled and obsessed over potential candidates for the raunchy roles. There have been hundreds of contestants, thousands of fan polls and millions of tweets and Facebook posts regarding Christian and Anastasia contention. And now it could all be coming to an end.
While author E. L. James and Universal Studios have performed brilliantly to hush any official word from Hollywood, producer Dana Brunett recently spoke with Lori and Michele on Northwest Prime Radio, offering exclusive insight inside the world of the "50 Shades of Grey" movie.
According to Brunett, fans may be disappointed with the final decision. He asks them to understand the difficulties of the casting process, claiming that the images readers create in their own perception while reading the books rarely translate onto the big screen. That being said, he says that head honchos have been taking fans' hopes and speculations into consideration, but other factors, such as the chemistry between the two lead actors, play a more important role, prolonging the deliberations.
Whatever happens next week, it's essential we move forward. Some of us may suffer disappointment so crippling that the world will stop on its axis, but not to worry. Be happy that there is a "50 Shades of Grey" film at all. And be happy that the excruciating wait is finally over.
