Director Rumored For Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie

One of the literary phenomenons taking the female population by storm is the EL James trilogy, Fifty Shades of Grey. The response has been so great, that Focus Features picked up the film rights for the film and are moving forward quickly on the project. There have been several different casting rumors for the actor and actress in line for the lead roles. Amanda Seyfried and Kristen Stewart are just two of the names thrown into the conversation to play the book’s lead female character, Anastasia Steele- having not read the book, I say going by the age of those two actresses they are looking for someone young and I think Elizabeth Olsen would be a solid pick for a young actress. The news now though- well rumor that is- is that Angelina Jolie was approached to direct the adaptation of the top selling book series. The rumor has been denied up and down by the studio as well as by the Jolie’s reps. Again, knowing about the book except knowledge of its racy subject matter it sounds as though a female perspective on the film could be what the adaptation needs- even if its just to keep it from being overly misogynistic and Jolie recently made her film directing debut last year with IN THE LAND OF BLOODY AND HONEY which was met with a mixed critical reaction- but at least she has experience, right?

Here’s a rundown of the plot to the books, a young college student, Anastasia Steele, develops a relationship with a 27 year old billionaire involving lots of submission, domination, S&M and bondage. The series also has two other books that delves deeper into their relationship and has largely been saddled with the term “mommy porn” by many of the people I’ve encountered talking about it.

The film rights to FIFTY SHADES OF GREY rang up to the tone of $5 million and is a series aimed primarily towards women. I don’t think that targeting Angelina Jolie specifically peaks the interest of the male demographic and I don’t really have an opinion as to what would attract men to the series. Regardless, when the film does come out you can be sure there will be men forced to see it and if nothing else, they can take solace in the fact that afterwards their significant other might be a little frisky later on- plus who knows, maybe the film might turn out to be pretty decent. Of course we won’t know for sure until a cast is in place, a director signed on, production has started, a release date set and that date passes.

Who do you think should star in and/or direct FIFTY SHADES OF GREY?

  2. Angikatt

    Jesse Metcalfe

  3. Colorican02

    paul walker should play christian grey :)

  4. nik

    Omg I hope its not a freakin twilight cast in this movie

  5. Allie

    I would hate to see Kristen steward as Ana … With that said maybe Ian somerhalder as Christian and Alexis Bledel as Ana.

  6. Sara Haugen

    Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey and Amanda Seyfried as Anastasia Steele.

  7. Kp Kp Kp

    Chris Pine as Christian Grey

  8. Ebonynickerson

    I so agree with Ian Somerhalder as Christian, just google and look at his images. The images scream Christian Grey!

  9. Rubiglitter

    Ian Somerhalder

  10. Hcsc3248

    Matt Bomer should play Mr. Grey.

    • Grasshopper23

      I agree Matt Bomer should play Christian Grey. He is perfect for that role.

      • Rtlewan

        Matt Bomer officially stepped out of the closet as gay back in February. I love gay people and no insults intended, however, as the subject of millions of women’s fantasies, Matt Bomer doesn’t fit. He’s super hot and a brave gay man…however, he can’t be Christian.

        • Marvalesk

          mmmm…. He’s an actor, what does being gay have to do with it? 

          • LL

            I, as MANY other women, just can’t wrap our heads around a gay man playing Christian.  Christian is a alpha male figure, Matt Bomer just isn’t that manly

      • Marvalesk

        Matt Bomer is perfect!!! The hair, the perfect face… and looks damn good in a suit…

  11. Nsh3lton

    Sam hemsworth as Christian

  12. Breeny79

    My top picks for Christian are, Chris Evans, Ryan gosling and maybe Ian somerhalder. For Ana, I think someone new and fresh would b great. Whomever they choose will hopefully know how to bring the heat to the movie and not b shy! I hope to god Angelina Jolie, does not direct it!

  13. Dunkmall

    Amanda Seyfried needs to play Anastasia!!!!

  14. Melissa_r311

    Ryan Phillipe should soooooo play Christian Grey and Katherine McPhee for Anastasia!!!

  15. Cruzfreddy76

    I think that Ryan gosling would be great as Christan Gray.

  16. Ian somerhalder or Ryan Gosling as Christian and Alexis Bledel as Ana!!!!!

  17. Lisa

    Alexander Skarsgard is perfect for Christian Grey. He ticks all (and we mean ALL) of the boxes. He’s an exemplary actor who plays light, shade and dark exceptionally well.

    There’s even a fast emerging Facebook fan page that a lot of women (and men) are supporting.. It’s called ‘Alexander Skarsgard to play Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey’.

    Go Team ASkarsgard!!!

  18. Cruzfreddy76

    Mr. Grey should be Ryan Gosling he is so yummy.

  19. Necyt

    Unknown actors for this film is a MUST!!!

  20. Lilkim2417

    Definitely not Kristen steward. She is a horrible actress. Ian somerhalder for Christian.

  21. Lilkim2417

    Mila kunis

  22. Hope Kennedy

    Christian grey should be Matt Bomer! He’s prefect and maybe Alexis Bledel.

  23. cheeto

    I’m going with Henry Cavill for Christian. He has it all. I also like Chris Pine…those eyes!

    • Jen B

      Since Chris Pine is out per his own volition I think Henry Cavill would be the PERFECT pick for Christian with either Emma Roberts or a younged up Scarlett Johansonn as Anastasia. Charlize Theron as Mrs. Robinson.

  24. Ahajah

    I think Leonardo de caprio!

  25. Loree86

    I agree….Matt Bomer as Christian Gray. Maybe Jennifer Aniston as Mrs. Robinson.

    • Rtlewan

      Matt Bomer officially stepped out of the closet as gay back in February. I love gay people and no insults intended, however, as the subject of millions of women’s fantasies, Matt Bomer doesn’t fit. He’s super hot and a brave gay man…however, he can’t be Christian.

  26. Loree86

    I agree….Matt Bomer as Christian Gray. Maybe Jennifer Aniston as Mrs. Robinson.

  27. Loree86

    Or Michelle Pfeiffer as mrs Robinson and Rachel mcAdams as Ana!

  28. JVH91

    Channing Tatum

  29. SEC10

    Ian Somerhalder is the perfect match for Christian Grey. He has the look and looks the proper age! This must become fact! As for Ana, I think Alexis Bledel would be a good Ana!

  30. dd

    Alex Pattyfer and Alexis Bledel

  31. Rachben

    I think Lily Collins or Ashley Greene should play Ana and Ian Somerhalder should be Christian

  32. Mr. Grey should be 
    Ian Somerhalder and for ana an unknown actor to keep it interesting or it could be Lucy Hale………
    Alexis Bledel cant be ana she doesnt look the young anymore 

  33. Colleen

    I think Ryan Gosling or Mark Wahlberg should play Christian Grey!!!

  34. Linzzo82

    I would love to see Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling as Ana and Christian. They were sensational in the Notebook together.

  35. Linzzo82

    Angelina Jolie definitally needs to direct this movie. She is the female sex goddess of her time. In fact she would make a great Mrs. Robinson.

  36. JoAnn

    I think Chris Hemsworth or Paul Walker for Christian and Ashley Green for Ana

    matt bomer and emilia clarke. alexis bledel is dull and her voice is annoying. we need some more unknown actors and actresses. its called acting people, just because he is gay doesn’t mean he lacks the ability to be the dominant. also just looked up henry cavill. damn he’s good too.

    Alex Pettyfer as Christian and Lucy Hale for Ana.

    1st=Alexander Skarsgard
