Fifty Shades Of Grey, you probably know by now, is a trilogy of books which began as a series of Twilight web fan-fiction called "Master of the Universe."
It is, of course, very different than Twilight in that it's an incredibly adult-oriented series and features characters with intentions and interests far dissimilar to Bella and Edward's own, but still, the origin is there in Twilight-land.
That said, with the books currently being adapted to script for Focus Features to film, the screenwriter has stepped up to ensure Fifty Shades readers that the films will distance themselves from Twilight.
From the Inquistr, screenwriter Kelly Marcel said, "This isn’t going to be Twilight. It’s going to be raunchy… We are 100% going there."
So, no PG-13 rating then? Shucks.
For the comments: Have you read 50 Shades, and if so, did you notice the Twilight connection or do you think the story holds up on its own? Do you think the films will be able to fully distance themselves from the Twilight Saga, or will that connection always remain?
