’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Is a TV Series a Better Idea?

Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on August 31, 2012 0 Comments

The 50 Shades of Grey movie hasn’t come out yet, but some fans are already upset about it.

There’s been an intense online battle going on over who should play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, with fans fighting for favorites like Matt Bomer, Ian Somerhalder, and Ryan Gosling. Ana options include Alexis Bledel, Alexandra Daddario, and Emilia Clarke.

However, Fifty fans must be tired of the casting debate, because now some of them have taken to arguing that the movie shouldn’t exist at all – they’d rather see 50 Shades on TV.

According to Books & Review, fans have been posting messages like this on the Fifty Shades Film website:

“As great as it is to have a movie in the works, I would of loved to have a HBO series. That way we could enjoy it longer, and the story could be told. Anyone else think this? Will a movie be able to do it justice?”

HBO and Showtime are known for airing sexy TV series that feature a lot of sex and skin – Game of Thrones, True Blood, and Californication are proof that a 50 Shades of Grey TV series could work. And what gal wouldn’t want to get to see Christian Grey every week?

However, the movie is already in the works, and there’s no way that the producers are going to abandon their cash cow now.

But this doesn’t mean that a 50 Shades TV series can’t exist in the future – if the movie is a big box office success, the producers will probably be looking for more ways to profit off of the 50 Shades property. Reboots and remakes are all the rage these days, so audiences are getting used to seeing multiple actors and actresses play beloved characters. There’s even been talk about a Twilight TV series.

Producers might feel pressured to pick a big-name movie actor like Ryan Gosling for the film, so fans unhappy with such a choice would enjoy getting to see someone like Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer play the character on TV. By the time the TV series came out, their current shows The Vampire Diaries and White Collar probably wouldn’t exist anymore.

So would you like to see 50 Shades on TV?
