As you can tell above, Bret Easton Ellis is unimpressed with the choice.
This isn’t his first time commenting on movie news. Just two months ago, he was under fire for saying Matt Bomer wouldn’t make a good Christian Grey because of his sexual orientation. Agree or disagree?
He was then taken off the list of possible screenwriters, which is understandable after his outburst. Perhaps Bomer was being considered for the role, and bashing him was beyond frowned upon. Let’s say, the blue-eyed stunner was cast as Grey, would Ellis have a temper tantrum over it? I doubt they wanted to risk it.
Don’t worry, Trevino, something tells me Bret’s not done tweeting about the matter just yet. Following his initial tweet on Marcel, he said, “Kelly Marcel: the creator of (gulp) “Terra Nova” and a Mary Poppins bio-pic has been blessed by EL James and no one can stop her. Dear God.”
How much more will he be commenting on the movie? Do we get to look forward to bashing and commenting throughout the whole process? Let us know what you think about Ellis and his opinions in the comments below!
