The Fifty Shades Of Grey movie has found a writer - Brit screenwriter Kelly Marcel will pen the script, based on EL James' novel.

According to her close pal Tom Hardy, Kelly did some last-minute uncredited screenplay work on 2008's Bronson. She also co-created TV series Terra Nova, and wrote the much-buzzed-about script for the upcoming movie Saving Mr. Banks, about the making of Mary Poppins.

She and Tom also cowrote a TV comedy pilot with called Candy Chops back in 2007, and co-founded The Bad Dog Theatre Company together in 2010. Could he step in and take the role of Christian Grey? (Yes, please.)

Producer of the upcoming movie, Michael De Luca, said: "Kelly’s work demonstrates her flawless structural technique and passionate commitment to emotion, humour and depth of character which is particularly visible in the celebrated screenplay for the upcoming Saving Mr. Banks.”

With Kelly's talent on board, we're looking forward to the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie even more now!
