'Matt Bomer isn't right for Christian Grey because he is openly gay,' Ellis tweeted.
The “American Psycho” writer had tweeted about his thoughts on who should direct and other casting thoughts before finally stating in an Aug. 7 tweet that, to his regret, he had not been chosen to write the screenplay for the film.
“It's a very major disappointment to announce that I've somehow been taken off the list of possible screenwriters for Fifty Shades of Grey,” Ellis tweeted.
He then tweeted on Aug. 8, “Okay I'll say it. Matt Bomer isn't right for Christian Grey because he is openly gay. He's great for other roles but this is too big a game.”
