Producers for the film adaptation of the wildly popular "Fifty Shades of Grey" have been chosen.

Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, the producers of the hit movie "The Social Network," will produce the film adaption of the erotic trilogy written by E.L. James., Universal Pictures and Focus Features said in a joint statement Monday.

The multimillion-selling books tell the story of a college student who becomes romantically involved with a wealthy young businessman.
