Sorry America, you asked for this. With millions of people unleashing their inner sexual fantasies thanks to the runaway success of "Fifty Shades Of Grey," it seems that if you're a writer inspired by the tween romance of Edward and Bella in the "Twilight" franchise, you're already halfway to a movie deal. And indeed, another author, who has turned her naughty fantasies into something that people are actual reading for real, has now inked a deal to bring that creation to life.

Beautiful Bastard Twilight

Sorry America, you asked for this. With millions of people unleashing their inner sexual fantasies thanks to the runaway success of "Fifty Shades Of Grey," it seems that if you're a writer inspired by the tween romance of Edward and Bella in the "Twilight" franchise, you're already halfway to a movie deal. And indeed, another author, who has turned her naughty fantasies into something that people are actual reading for real, has now inked a deal to bring that creation to life.

Constantin Film has snapped up the rights to "Beautiful Bastard," which hits bookstores on Tuesday, but already has been a digital phenomenon. Penned by Nobel Prize laureate Christina Hobbs, the story follows an MBA student who begins an affair with media mogul boss at the company where she interns. So yes, this is basically the exact same plot as "Fifty Shades Of Grey." Essentially, there's some gender/power/class dynamics at play, but let's be honest, no one cares about the thematic undercurrent, they just want hawt sexx

And to help make that happen is Jeremy Bolt, the producer with an estimable list of credits that include some "Resident Evil" movies, "Death Race," "Pandorum," "The Hole" and...well, you get the idea. We're not sure why Hollywood suddenly thinks they can do edgy sex well, when historically, they've generally embarrassed themselves ("Body Of Evidence," "Color Of Night," etc). But hey, good luck to them. The rest of the world has the internet for their wanking needs. [THR]
