Warner Bros to adapt Beautiful Disaster

Get ready for the new Fifty Shades…

Warner Bros has emerged victorious during a frenzied bidding war for the rights to Jamie McGuire’s novel Beautiful Disaster, which is described as a youth-friendly Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Warners and CBS Films fought over the movie rights for the novel, which started out as a self-published online hit before getting snatched up by a publishing house.

The book follows Abby Abernathy, a teetotal college student who falls for the dangerous-looking Travis Maddox.

They make a bet: if she wins, he has to go without sex for a month. If she loses, she has to live with him for a month. You can guess where it goes from there.

As the balls get rolling (sorry) on a Fifty Shades Of Grey movie adaptation, Beautiful Disaster is seen as less risky for studio executives who don’t have to contend with the same overtly kinky material.

Expect a storm of casting speculations to commence right about now….

Think these saucy lit adaptations are only a good thing? Talk to us below...

      Jensen Ackles always imagined playing Travis Maddox and Abby Abernathy being played by Nina Dobrev ... would be amazing (:
