In a new question and answer session, Universal chairman Adam Fogelson addresses concern that production on Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t moving fast enough, and offers a potential release date.

Fogelson spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about a variety of topics, including the adaptation of E.L. James’ runaway erotic hit. They directly asked him about criticism over the slow movement on the film, which has yet to name a director or any cast members.

“I certainly understand why some people might take that point of view,” he said. “But I don’t believe that [author EL James] had any interest in going to a studio where rushing it into production was the vision. I don’t believe that the second or third film would have benefited from that strategy. And I think that there are totally legitimate questions about what this book is as a movie. I will tell you that it is an absolute priority for us. It’s conceivable that we could be ready to release it as early as next summer.”

Not only does this offer us a release time frame, but it’s clear that Universal hopes to go forward with turning all three books in the trilogy into films.

Kelly Marcel is penning the Fifty Shades of Grey script.

      I can’t even imagine…. The horror!

    If this movie gets made at all, it will only be in theatres for about a week and won’t make over $1M. There aren’t very many theatres that show X-rated movies, and if they bump it down to R they’d lose half the story.

    This is a huge mistake. Why can’t people leave well enough alone? The movies will be absolutely horrible and boring. This movie will be PG13 (which will ruin the entire point of the movie) or rated XXX (this rating will not be available for their target movie audience which is teens) This is bullshizz!

      They are already stated it wll be NC-17 and they are keeping close to the book.

    Well, at least we have an estimate of when the apocalypse will be starting.

    The best anyone can hope for that is making this movie is to have the shot composition be done in a way that would make it R. Otherwise almost no one will see it. An NC-17 movie will not do well at all because of the limited release. I have honestly read the books and you might think that it would be NC-17 but it is more R rated content to be honest. It all comes down to how it is presented on film. If anyone is wanting their fifty shades movie fix go and watch the secretary.
