The Fifty Shades saga is getting ready to go Black thanks to Marlon Wayans. The funnyman has just inked a deal with Open Road films for the spoof comedy Fifty Shades of Black based on the best selling erotica book and film, Fifty Shades of Grey released earlier this year.

“I went to see the movie and I was like there needs to be a black version of this, this is ridiculous,” Wayans told HipHollywood while attending the L.A. film premiere for Dope.

Wayans will write, produce and star in the film as you guessed it … Christian Black. But he doesn’t have a leading lady cast yet. “Let’s see who fits the handcuffs,” he joked.

Wayans has had success with his previous horror movie spoof films like Scary Movie and A Haunted House, but this time he decided to try something different.

“[Fifty Shades of Grey] was a drama, but they left so many jokes on the table, so I’m just going for what’s the funny version of that movie,” he explained.

We’ll get to see how it all turns out when Fifty Shades of Black hits theaters January 29, 2016.

Roc Nation manages Rihanna, Shakira, J Cole and DJ Khaled to name a few.

Apparently, the pop diva is hoping Hov and his team can put her back on top now that she parted ways with former manager Stella Bulochnikov earlier this month.

Sources tell HipHollywood Carey is cleaning house, and has also fired her publicist, assistant and attorney Darrell Miller.

But one person who hasn’t gotten the boot is her back-up dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. Rumors were swirling that she hired Tanaka to take over her day-to-day management, but he’s actually her creative director.

Carey just released her holiday movie Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and is slated to bring her Christmas concerts back to the Beacon Theater in NYC this month. She hasn’t however dropped a new album in almost four years.

Fingers crossed this new partnership with Roc Nation brings about new music, and a Mariah / Jay Z collaboration. The two did make magic back in 1999 with their #1 single “Heartbreaker.”
