Marlon Wayans Spoof ‘Fifty Shades of Black’ Set for Early 2016

In a pre-Cannes annoucement, IM Global has come on board to finance Marlon Wayans’ “Fifty Shades of Grey” spoof “Fifty Shades of Black,” with a release set for early next year.

Wayans will produce, star and write with producer-writer Rick Alvarez; Mike Tiddes directs. “Fifty Shades of Black” reteams IM Global with the trio following their collaboration on the two “Haunted House” spoofs.

IM Global is launching sales at Cannes next week. CEO Stuart Ford, president of production Matt Jackson and senior VP of production Glendon Palmer are exec producing.

“We’re excited to be back in business with IM Global doing our comedic remix of this movie,” Wayans said. “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.”
