Tricia McAlpin To Adapt ‘Forever, Interrupted’ For ‘Fifty Shades’ Dakota Johnson

EXCLUSIVE: Gidden Media and Good Universe set Tricia McAlpin to adapt Taylor Jenkins Reid’s Forever, Interrupted: A Novel as a star vehicle for Fifty Shades Of Grey‘s Dakota Johnson. The comedian, actress and writer also is writing the spinoff to Paul Feig’s hit comedy The Heat for Chernin Entertainment and Fox, and episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Amy Baer will produce through her company Gidden Media. Johnson also will serve as executive producer alongside Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake of Good Universe, and John Middleton and Roy Lee. Erin Westerman will oversee the project on behalf of Good Universe.

The book tells the story of a young woman who elopes after a whirlwind romance and then must face the sudden death of her adoring husband. She must come to terms with his loss while forming an unlikely relationship with his mother – who didn’t know she existed.

We’re thrilled that Tricia connected with Reid’s novel,” Baer said. “Not only is she an inspired writer with a singular voice, but she has a personal connection to the subject matter and will bring a tremendous amount of emotion to the adaptation. Coupled with her wicked sense of humor, Tricia will strike the perfect balance of comedy and pathos — which was always our goal for this beautiful book.” 

WME and Management 360-repped Johnson next will star in Studio Canal’s A Bigger Splash, which Fox Searchlight will release this year, and Black Mass opposite Johnny Depp, which Warner Bros. will open in September. Dan Freedman of Good Universe negotiated McAlpin’s deal on behalf of the producers. McAlpin is represented by UTA, 3 Arts Entertainment and Melissa Fox of Hansen, Jacobson, Teller.

Fifty Shades star Jamie Dornan in new wartime drama Anthropoid

Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan is to play a Czechoslovakian soldier who takes part in an assassination attempt on notorious SS officer Reinhard Heydrich in a new film to be directed by Sean Ellis, the British film-maker best known for the Philippines-set Metro Manila.

The film is to be called Anthropoid, named after the real-life Operation Anthropoid in which two Czechoslovak paratroopers attacked Heydrich’s car in Nazi-occupied Prague in 1942 after they had parachuted in following training by British forces.

Although the attack appeared initially unsuccessful, Heydrich died several days later from his injuries. His death resulted in the massacre of thousands of civilians by the SS in reprisal.

Ellis has co-scripted the film with Anthony Frewin, Stanley Kubrick’s former assistant and now a novelist. Peaky Blinders’ Cillian Murphy has been cast alongside Dornan, and shooting is due to begin in July.

Ellis said: “I feel incredibly proud to bring the story of Anthropoid to the big screen … In the Czech Republic, it is a story of great national pride, and it’s time to tell the world that story.”

Anthropoid appears to have beaten another film about the same operation, HHhH, into production. Based on Laurent Binet’s award-winning French novel, HHhH has a script by David Farr but has not yet attached a director.

Fifty Shades of Grey breaks records at the Eden Cinemas Box Office

Fifty Shades of Grey premiered on Friday 13th February at the Eden cinemas with complete sell out shows throughout the day and weekend.

Being one of the most anticipated films of the year, there was no doubt that the film would be a success at the box office, however, with tickets for the premiere selling out in just a few days, expectations were greatly exceeded and extra screens had to be opened up.

Ten days into its release the film has exceeded all expectations and has brought in more people than any film in 2015 or in 2014 while at the same time breaking the record for box office takings for a single film in February.

Fifty Shades of Grey has outperformed top grossers of last year The Hobbit and Maleficent and is expected to continue going strong and continuing to break records throughout its release period which could be as much as 12-16 weeks.

It is interesting to note that in its second week, film attendance dropped by 73% in the United States but locally, Fifty Shades of Grey is still performing stronger than many blockbusters do on their first week.

“Fandango said it sold 29% of the opening weekend tickets for “Fifty Shades of Grey,” marking the largest share of receipts for any movie released in its 15-year history. That number does not take into account the Monday holiday. The previous record holder was “The Hunger Games” in 2012, with Fandango accounting for 22% of that film’s domestic opening weekend.”
