Marlon Wayans, along with producer-director Rick Alvarez, are taking on 50 Shades of Grey with their upcoming spoof, Fifty Shades of Black.

IM Global’s Matt Jackson and Glendon Palmer will be executive producing and had this to say about the project: “We’re excited to pair up once again with Marlon, Rick and Mike on Fifty Shades of Black, and we look forward to together creating another wholesome slice of entertainment for all the family.”

Wayans added, “We’re excited to be back in business with IM Global doing our comedic remix of this movie. Sex and comedy go hand-in-hand and I’m looking forward to having fun with this project. It’s amazing when a film of this caliber comes along begging to be made fun of. I’m really happy to be doing what I love with people I love to do it with. That double entendre was intentional.”

IM Global is planning to release the project in 2016, and work will begin soon. Wayan will star in the film and will be writing alongside Alvarez. IM Global founder and CEO Stuart Ford will be producing alongside Wayans and Alvarez, as IM Global will be fully financing the project.
