Somebody's been very, very bad — and not in a sexy way!

The makers of Fifty Shades of Grey: a XXX Adaptation are being sued by the copyright owner of the book, as well as Universal Studios, which owns the movie rights. Why? According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plaintiffs argue the porn film is a "willful attempt to capitalize on the reputation of the book."

THR quoted a portion of the lawsuit: "By lifting exact dialogue, characters, events, story, and style from the Fifty Shades trilogy, Smash Pictures ensured that the first XXX adaptation was, in fact, as close as possible to the original works. [...] The first XXX adaptation is not a parody, and it does not comment on, criticize, or ridicule the originals. It is a rip-off, plain and simple."

They want an injunction and monetary damages. They could probably just kill the film off through irrelevancy by actually making and releasing the first Fifty Shades of Grey film. That's probably going to be close to porn as it is.
