Although the original Fifty Shades film wasn't supposed to be funny, a lot of viewers found it amusing anyway! So Marlon is bringing us a different take on box office hit which emphasises the jokes.
Unlike the first film, this version will star a black Christian Grey, and this time the brooding billionaire won't be a god in the bedroom either, in fact the new Christian will be rubbish at sex.
The White Chicks actor described the project to Entertainment Weekly as "like Fifty Shades Of Grey if Christian Grey was black and he was rich, but we don't know exactly how he got his money, he's a little shady, and he's a really bad lover."
The star also claimed that his version wasn't a spoof exactly but a "comedic remix", saying that he simply finds the jokes that the dramas ignored. Ok then.
But you don't have to have seen the original to get the jokes. He explained: "It's not so much 'Hey, if you didn't see it, you're not going to enjoy the movie.' If you've seen it you may enjoy certain parts a little bit more, but I'm trying to make this for everybody to enjoy."
"Everybody who's ever been in a relationship, or ever had sex, or been in these similar situations – or not – can enjoy it."
Well, with Marlon having written and starred in the Scary Movie franchise, Dance Flick, A Haunted House, A Haunted House 2, and White Chicks, we're already convinced this film be a funny one!
