Bret Easton Ellis may be out of contention to draft the screenplay for Fifty Shades of Grey, but The Hollywood Reporter has the four names remaining on the studio short list, and one is a doozy. THR reports that the screenwriter finalists include Dan Fogelman (Crazy Stupid Love), Karen Croner (One True Thing), Kelly Marcel (Terra Nova) … and Veena Sud, the divisive, technophobic showrunner of AMC's recently canceled The Killing.
