Fifty Shades of Grey Panic as Prequel Manuscript Is Stolen

June 11, 2015 - Fifty Shades of Grey

It has not been an glorious week for a Fifty Shades of Grey franchise. Several days after a film’s screenwriter Kelly Marcel revealed that she could not move herself to watch a adaptation—which stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson and reportedly suffered from artistic differences—a publishing for an unpublished Fifty Shades of Grey prequel has been stolen.

BBC reports that “Kent Police ha[ve] launched an review after Random House detected a duplicate of Grey had left blank on Monday.” Grey is a prequel that was set to report Fifty Shades of Grey’s events from a viewpoint of a eponymous billionaire. The book was only announced final week, when a publisher alerted a Fifty Shades village that a warn summer present would strike bookshelves on a protagonist’s birthday, Jun 18.

And now, someone has adult and stolen a manuscript! BBC adds that a publisher is generally endangered that “the thieves might trickle a novel, or sell extracts to a media.” A military orator said that, as of Wednesday, authorities were not certain where a burglary occurred: “It could have been in a warehouse, or roving to a room or from a warehouse.” And notwithstanding a probability that a book could trickle online, a publisher issued a statement currently confirming that it will not rush a book’s release.

James’s literary trilogy has sole over 125 million copies worldwide. The initial book was so essential that, in 2012, Random House surprised each employee with a $5,000 holiday bonus.

The A.P. points out that this is not a initial British heist of a best-selling literary franchise: “In 2005, thieves stole copies of a much-anticipated Harry Potter and a Half-Blood Prince from a room north of London and attempted to sell them to publication newspapers.” Variety reminds us that Twilight was a plant of an eerily identical burglary when, in 2008, a prejudiced breeze of Stephenie Meyer’s spinoff from Edward Cullen’s viewpoint leaked online.
