"Fifty Shades" has a lot of exciting news for fans! Singer Rita Ora is hoping for more lines in the franchise while Marlon Wayans produces a hilarious spin on the erotic romance movie.
Songstress Rita Ora is looking forward to reprising her role of Mia Grey in the "Fifty Shades" franchise, if the opportunity arises. The 24-year old singer made a small cameo in the first movie.
Ora appeared in "Fifty Shades of Grey" as the adoptive daughter of Carrick Grey and Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey, sister to Christian Grey. The "Black Widow" singer had but four lines, however she is hoping for a chance to do more in the following two sequels, "Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed." The singer-songwriter divulged her hope for a bigger role in a chat with ITV's 'Lorraine, reports The Nation. "I'm a massive fan of the books and my character, Mia Grey, she very much evolves in [books] two and three slowly but surely. So if they do ask me [to be in the film], of course I'll be there.''
Author E.L. James, revealed she is currently working on two more romance novels. In a twitter chat with fans, she was asked whether she plans to produce any more work, to which she replied, "I've written a new book and am halfway through another. Both romances. Not sure when I will finish them.''
While the best-selling author pens two more novels, comedian Marlon Wayans is hard at work creating a comedic spin-off of the dramatic romance movie.
Marlon Wayans tells Entertainment Weekly, "Like 'Fifty Shades of Grey' if Christian Grey was black and he was rich, but we don't know exactly how he got his money, he's a little shady, and he's a really bad lover."
Wayans is quick to advise the movie will not be a spoof. Like the rest of his comedy-filled motions pictures. "I don't look at these movies like spoofs, as much as comedic remixes," said Marlon. I just approach it as its own original movie, with its own plot and its own characters, and just take them through a similar journey. I just find the jokes where the dramas didn't. It's kind of like what Kanye [West] does to old soul music; I just remix it for this generation, for people that want to see comedies."
Wayans has produced comedic spins on a number of movies including the Scary Movie franchise.
"Fifty Shades of Black" hit theaters on Jan. 20, 2016.
