Marlon Wayans: Fifty Shades Of Grey spoof will be funny

Marlon Wayans has revealed that his Fifty Shades Of Grey spoof will be hilarious.

The funnyman is giving the erotic film a comedic makeover with Fifty Shades Of Black, which he will also star in as Christian Black.

“What if Christian Grey was black and he was rich but you kind of know how he got his money, it’s kind of shady and he’s a really bad lover? I mean it’s kind of similar to the movie,” the 42-year-old comedian joked.

“They had all these scenes and I was like, a funny version of this and a funny version of that and before you knew it we had a really funny script.”

Fifty Shades Of Black, directed by Michael Tiddes, has been picked up by Open Road Films, with a release set for January 2016.

Marlon, who will co-write the film with Rick Alvarez, said the comedy is likely to feature faces from his other films such as Affion Crockett and Cedric the Entertainer.

As for the “red room of pain”, the actor teased his version of Christian’s playroom will be “chartreuse or turquoise or some ugly random colour”.
