*Marlon Wayans and producer-writer Rick Alvarez are taking their spoofing talents to the “Fifty Shades of Grey” phenomenon for his next film, “Fifty Shades of Black.”
IM Global, a subsidiary of Indian conglomerate Reliance ADA, is fully financing the film, which reunites the team behind Marlon’s “Haunted House franchise, including director Michael Tiddes.
The project will be introduced to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival, which begins next week, notes The Hollywood Reporter.
Wayans will star and write with Alvarez, with production to begin shortly, according to IM Global founder and CEO Stuart Ford. IM Global is planning an early 2016 release.
“We’re excited to be back in business with IM Global doing our comedic remix of this movie,” stated Wayans. “Sex and comedy go hand-in-hand and I’m looking forward to having fun with this project. It’s amazing when a film of this caliber comes along begging to be made fun of. I’m really happy to be doing what I love with people I love to do it with. That double entendre was intentional.”
