I don't see anything good coming out of this. It's Twilight but with sex instead of terrible hints about sex. Heck, the book was Twilight fan fiction to start with.

 

I would make Steve McQueen direct, cast Tom Hardy and Emma Stone and... option a real script instead of this shlock. I don't know, make a sequel to The Dreamers. That would be amazing.

I was excited when Brett Easton Ellis was rumored to be the script adaptator.
