Marlon Wayans is starring as Mr. Christian Black in the parody film Fifty Shades of Black, a spoof on the 2015 erotic film and book series Fifty Shades of Grey. Wayans also wrote the script and is a producer. His friend Michael Tiddes (A Haunted House) is directing. The 92-minute film, which was filmed in Los Angeles last summer, was made on a $20 million budget.
Kali Hawk (Bridesmaids) plays Hannah, the inexperienced college student sent to interview Mr. Black. Mike Epps (The Hangover) plays Hannah’s overprotective stepfather, and former Bond Girl Jane Seymour (Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman) has a role. Fun fact about the promotional poster of Fifty Shades of Black: it’s a spoof of the Roger Moore James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only. (Seymour was in Live and Let Die with Moore.)
