Mark Wahlberg wanted to get his hands on the Fifty Shades of Grey Movie and serve as the movie’s producer, but as it turns out things were not meant to be for this former model turned rapper turned actor turned producer and the title was awarded elsewhere.
Wahlberg was ‘blown away’ by the final price of the movie, stating that it was far out of his production company’sprice range to pay.
At the end of the day it was big-time Universal Pictures and Focus Films that won the bidding wars and the rights to the movie based upon the EL James trilogy that turned heads and showed women across the world that it was okay to explore their sexuality and their sexual nature.
Although Wahlberg did not get the winning bid on the movie it is still underway and filming it taking place in Vancouver, Canada as we speak. With a February 2015 release date it will still be some time before the fans can see what all the fuss was about, but according to what we have heard and the photos that we have saw, this is not going to be any bit of disappointing.
