Fifty Shades of Grey Movie: Dakota Johnson thinks Anastasia Steele is “kind of boring”

dakota johnson

Dakota Johnson is a lucky girl. When you are cast in the role of a lead character in a major motion picture adaptation, of an erotic novel of the same name, wouldn’t you too be considered lucky? And when you have a smoking hot co-star like Jamie Dornan for company, why would you say that playing the role of Anastasia Steele, in the Fifty Shades movie adaptation is kind of boring?

There are no two words that Dakota Johnson, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith’s daughter, has landed quite the coveted role with her playing the role of Anastasia Steele in the big screen adaptation of the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, written by Erica James. But her recent comments that her character is ‘kind of boring’ might not go down too well with some of the fans of the character and the franchise.

If Dakota is to be believed then, playing Anastasia Steele required her to get into the character’s head space and before she meets the enigmatic and mysterious businessman Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan, she finds her character ‘boring’. Though she agrees that playing the role of Anastasia Steele entails her to read a lot, since Ana is a college graduate and is an English major student, but this is the very aspect which makes Ana “kinda boring” too.

The actress, features in an ensemble cast which boasts of the likes of English singer and songwriter, Rita Ora and an Oscar winning actress, Marcia Gay Harden among the hot and sizzling actor Jamie Dornan, who slips into crisp shirts and suits (and out of them, too). But when it comes to the movie adaptation, it is not only the cast, but also the racy scenes which have vowed to hold the attention of the readers turned viewers.

The actress, who was earlier, associated with projects such as “The Social Network” and “The Five Year Engagement”, in minor roles, has also said that she is enjoying her time on the sets of the movie being filmed in Vancouver. The 24 year old adds that when Ana becomes Grey’s submissive partner, life becomes somewhat interesting for her, because of the opulent gifts that Grey showers on her, which includes an Audi too!

The movie, which is being directed by Sam- Taylor Johnson will see a Valentine’s Day release in 2015, as it releases on the 13th of February next year and with only about a year left for the release, the cast and the crew must be busy putting the act together and when a film is as hugely anticipated as this one, no loose ends will be entertained.

Victor Rasuk cast as Jose in 50 shades movie

Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades and Dakota Johnson

Things have not been smooth in the casting of Fifty Shades of Grey, but after Charlie Hunnam’s sudden departure from the cast, whose role of Christian Grey was filled in by Irish hottie Jamie Dornan, it looks like the ball is finally rolling where the remaining cast is concerned.

Dominican-American hunk Victor Rasuk, known for his role in the HBO series “How To Make It In America”, has been brought on board for the movie production of Fifty Shades of Grey as the part of José. His part might not be among the leading two, but he plays a central role in the plotline.

José is an amateur photographer who is close to Anastasia Steele’s, but while Ana sees him as the “brother she never had”, José clearly wants something more with the leading lady.

Now that casting is finally happening, it looks like the cameras will be rolling for the Fifty Shades of Grey movies within the next few weeks.

Other confirmed cast members include Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, with Luke Grimes playing his foster brother Elliot Grey, and Jennifer Ehle as their mother.

The movie’s has surprisingly focused on unknowns for the entire production. British screenwriter Kelly Marcel penned the screen adaptation of E.L. James’s best selling erotica trilogy, while artist and film director Sam Taylor-Johnson will be directing the movie.

Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, who have already established themselves as serious producers after their work on The Social Network, are producing the much anticipated movie that is scheduled to hit the screens 1 August 2014, which despite all the casting issues seems to be ready for filming in the near future, so hopefully the film is on track.

For those hungry to see more from Victor, the latino star is already working hard on his filmography. He has recently appeared in “Jobs” and fans will get to see him star in “Godzila” in the near future. While he’s out there making a name for himself as an actor, one thing that’s for sure is that with Fifty Shades of Grey, he’ll be a big name to contend with in Hollywood in the near future.

There are still some casting slots to fill, which are still causing a lot of gossip, most notably the part of Elena Lincoln, where Katie Holmes is rumored to be the new favorite, but that’s something we’ll have to wait and see.

So what do you think of Victor? Is he the right choice for José?

50 Shades Movie Shooting Delayed

Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in 50 shades movie

I bring sad news in the wake of good news. The shooting of Fifty Shades movie has pushed back commencement of shooting the scenes that will bring together the storyline of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

Originally shooting was to begin early November in Vancouver. It has now been confirmed that shooting will begin on December 2nd. This now leaves eight months to meet the release date of the movie.

Sam Taylor-Wood is the British director who will be working from the script adapted for the movie by Kelly Marcel, who is also British. Scenes are being planned and placed together and Sam Taylor-Wood, a relative unknown producer will have to work hard to get this movie which seems to have been dogged with a few problems lately, put together in time for the ever-looming release date of August 1st 2014.

Jamie Dornan

As news has settled down over the casting of the Irish actor, Jamie Dornan, it’s now time to get this show on the road and pull out all the stops to get this movie released to US audiences in the summer of 2014.

As the leading man is now in place again, we can look forward to December when we hope to bring you as much news as possible on how shooting is going. Jamie and his casting in the role of Christian Grey have been met with approval by the critical fans of Fifty Shades. Compared with the news that Charlie had been cast, the news has gone down well. Jamie and his Irish charm are clearly far more palatable than Charlie Hunnam. The fussy little things they are. But as the world has taken Christian and Anastasia to their hearts, then it’s hardly surprising that fans speak up with they are disgruntled.

Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey

Get your diaries out and erase the November shooting date, place it in December and let’s hope this movie begins to get started soon. Please also stay tuned for further announcements on more casting news as we bring you up-to-date news on this area. Don’t forget to add your comments on all our articles regarding your favorite movie. We look forward to receiving feedback on the news.

The troubled schedule will recover from this setback and with the gorgeous Jamie in the new role, fans have settled down and are now awaiting the pushed back filming date. We have every faith that all will be well and the powers that be at Universal will pull this off beautifully. Our new Christian Grey is sexy and smart, we love him and we are sure you do too.

Dakota Johnson

Not long, eight months and we hope there are no more setbacks for this movie that has had everything documented about it. Good luck Jamie and Dakota, we are right behind you.

Charlie Hunnam in FX’S Sons of Anarchy

SOA-Hunnam01

On September 2nd it was announced that Charlie Hunnam would be playing Christian Grey. On September 10th the sixth season of FX’s television drama was released, Sons of Anarchy. Viewing figures for the sixth season have increased as the lead role is played by Charlie Hunnam.

Charlie plays Jackxon “Jax” Teller who at the opening of the series is the vice-president of an outlaw motor-cycle club who begins to question his role in the club and his life. Jax has a number of tattoos on his body and his arms featuring the names of his sons. He became President of the motor-cycle club as his father was the founding member.

Jax has a genetic heart disorder that his younger brother died from at the age of six. Jax has a criminal history and is a former prisoner. The character has had various brushes with the law. He divorces his wife was because she couldn’t remain clean from her drug addiction. She subsequently beats her drug addiction for a short period of time and Jax reconciles with his wife. They have a son who is born addicted to a substance. Jax leaves his wife and subsequently marries a childhood sweetheart who he has a second son with.

Jax’s father founded the original club and once his father died, Jax’s mother remarries and her second husband becomes the president of the club. On finding the original manifesto of the club written by his father, Jax begins to question the club’s handling and direction and this causes friction between him and his stepfather and divides the clubs’ members.

Throughout the series, Jax’s troubled private life is entangled with women. Prison has featured throughout many of the episodes with Jax a frequent resident of the jail system. The character has a profound goodness about him which attracts the viewers. Jax gets into trouble because he’s trying to do good and he tugs at the heart strings of the viewers with his own demons and his battles in his love life. Jax characterizes a young man who is trying to uphold his father’s club but is in constant conflict with himself over the women in his life.

The drama has attracted positive critique and Charlie’s character has been named as one of TV’s best dads. It was the birth of his son, Abel that enabled him to begin to question his life and what direction it was going in. Finding the writings of his father had such an emotional impact on him that he began to focus on his family yet somehow all the right he tried to do always landed him in trouble.

Charlie plays a fascinating character pulled apart by the women in his life, torn apart by the birth of his first son who suffered a chemically-poisoned start in his life due to his drug-addicted mother. Charlie depicts this character well and the show has been a huge success since its launch in 2008. I’ve no doubt series six will be a huge hit with Charlie now that he’s going on to play Christian Grey.

British model-turned actress for Kate Kavanagh

Keeley-Hazell-to-play-Kate-Kavanagh-in-Fifty-Shades-of-Grey-movie

The lesser role for Kate Kavanagh has had people speculating that the part should go to a well-known bubbly blonde like Blake Lively, but what about unknown British actress Keeley Hazell? Since Fifty Shades of Grey is going to pull in the audience without having to resort to big name stars, going down the road of the unknown could be an effective way to bring the story for life and model-turned-actress Keeley Hazell could very well fit the bill.

Keeley Hazell 50 shades movie

 

Keeley’s name isn’t well-known outside the UK, but the former glamour model has appeared in movies like My Funny Valentine, How to Stop Being a Loser and Like Crazy. She is more than just a pretty face, as her acting has shown us that she does have what it takes to pull it off. A big name might not be better, and sometimes it’s more effective to have under-the-radar actors in a movie, and in the case of Kate, she’s less high profile than Christian Grey and Ana Steele anyway.

Will Charlize Theron Get the Role as Elena in The Movie Fifty Shades Of Grey

Charlize-Theron-fifty shades of grey movie

“I don’t have issues being naked,” said Theron, “That sounds very ok with me. What I mean is, I’m not hung up on my body.”

Back in July 2012, Charlize took part in a saucy photo shoot with W magazine, where she took part in a dominatrix inspired photo-shoot.

Elena is a pivotal character in the books, since she was a friend of Christian’s mother and coaxed the young Grey into an affair. She was Christian’s first partner and experience, and turned him into what he becomes, which ignited his passion. Their affair only lasted until he was twenty-one when her husband discovered their liaisons.

Charlize-Theron-

Despite ending the affair, Christian and Elena remain good friends, much to Anastasia Steele’s distress.

Right now, the money is on Charlize for the part, but many fans out there would love to see Sex and the City actress Kim Catrall in the part of the temptress or Quentin Tarantino muse Uma Thurman. Angelina Jolie has made it no secret that she would love a part in the movie, and to many she would definitely have what it takes to pull off the perfect Elena with her smoldering looks.

Charlize has the right subtlety and we know she can definitely act, but would she be interested in the Fifty Shades of Grey movies? Do you think Charlize has got what it takes?

Allison Williams as Anastasia Steele

It seems like more and more names are being added to the list of Anastasia Steele candidates, and the latest beauty to make the cut is relatively unknown actress Allison Williams.

She might be under the radar, but if you’re a fan of the HBO series “Girls,” then you may know of Ms. Williams, who is the newest name to be linked with the Fifty Shades of Grey part.

Allison+Williams+Target

Speculations on the part of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movies have been going on ever since Universal Studios and Focus Features have picked up the rights to the books, fans the world over have been speculating, despite E.L. James’s tweets saying the film would take a while to produce.

Allison-Williams-fifty shades of grey

That hasn’t stopped fans, however, and polls and casting speculation has been crazy for those anxious for the Fifty Shades of Grey movies to come out. The candidates for the part of Christian Grey have remained more or less fixed, but the part for Anastasia Steele is constantly changing. Alexis Bledel was once the fan favorite, and now she’s been toppled off the top spot by Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. Other fan favorites include Nina Dobrev, Lucy Hale, Emma Watson and Felicity Jones.

Fifty Shades of Grey NEW TRAILER 2014 starring Matt Bomer

Matt Bomer

The Texas born actor has been under the radar until he was cast as Neal Caffrey in White Collar, where he gets to play a conman in a suave suit. After seeing him in the role of Neal, we’re sold on the fact he can pull off a complex role like Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

However, Matt has been a controversial choice, mainly due to his personal life, with the likes of Bret Easton Ellis saying Matt should not play Christian Grey because he is gay. To anyone who has seen White Collar, this is clearly untrue. Matt is a good actor, and he could definitely pull of playing a heterosexual character like Christian Grey.

The other issue concerns his age, since Matt is in his mid-thirties. Although, the same argument could be used against other fan favorite Ian Somerhalder who is only a year younger than Bomer. Only Henry Cavill falls in the right age range for Christian Grey out of the top favorites. Bomer looks young though, so we can definitely picture him as Christian Grey without any doubt.

Is Henry Cavill Hinting at Wanting the Christian Grey Role

Mr Grey- Henry Cavill

To some fans of the books, Henry Cavill is the perfect candidate for Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. He might not be in the top two along with Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer, but on paper he’s the perfect candidate – so why?

Henry Cavill as Superman

The British actor has been labeled as the break out star of 2013, with his upcoming movie Man of Steel where he gets to play the leading role of Superman. He’s known enough to carry some weight, but he’s not so famous as to eclipse the actual character of Christian Grey. In the Immortals he showed us he has the perfect body for Christian Grey and to top it off, he inspired Stephenie Meyer’s Edward Cullen in the Twilight books. And, we all know that E.L. James’s Fifty Shades of Grey began life as Twilight fan fiction.

Henry Cavill

The 29-year-old actor is a logical choice in many ways, and more and more fans are beginning to see this. While he’s got a while to go to topple Ian Somerhalder off the lead, we’ve got a feeling that could very well happen.

While Cavill might have been discrete about starring in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, he turned up at another public event on the 22nd of February wearing a familiar looking, grey tie. Did Cavill pick the grey tie to go with his eyes or is he trying to send a secret message that he would like the role of Christian Grey? This is the second time The Tudor’s star has been seen out in public with the iconic tie, the first appearance was back in February when he attended the Baftas. It is no secret that Fifty Shades of Grey producers have met up with an agency that have Henry on their list, but right now all we have to go on are rumors.

The British actor hails from Jersey in the Channel Islands, and had his first film role in 2002 in an adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo, he went on to star in a number of British TV dramas before he began to get movie gigs, although his big break was perhaps in Showtime’s television drama series The Tudors, where he played Charles Brandon the First Duke of Suffolk.

After losing out to Daniel Craig in the part of James Bond, Cavill was dubbed as the “Unluckiest Man in Hollywood,” which when coupled with losing out to Christian Bale as Batman, we can see why. However, it looks like things are turning round for Cavill, especially if he gets the part of Christian Grey.

EL James Enjoyed L.A. while on the hunt for Anastasia Steele

El james and Team Fifty

Rumor has it that the author of the Fifty Shades of Grey books, E.L. James has spent the last week in Los Angeles. She’s not only been in the public spotlight more often, but has been teasing fans with some slips of news.

She’s not only let slip that the script is complete, with pictures of its remains on Twitter at the end of February, but she’s also making the most of her trip to L.A. for the Oscar weekend to scout for the perfect Anastasia Steele.

The Twitter exchange between screenwriter Kelly Marcel and E.L. James has hinted that the script is finished, while the pair have also spent an “Awesome evening” with the producers of the movie.

However, things got even more interesting over the Oscar weekend when E.L. James spent the Oscar night at the post-Oscar party hosted by Vanity Fair. Allegedly, E.L. James was spotted with her agent who is on the prowl for the perfect Anastasia Steele. So, what we want to know is who was at the party?

There were many actresses who were in attendance, but there were a few notable brunettes to make note of, like Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, along with blonde, but makes a great brunette, Jennifer Lawrence, who has just won her own Oscar. Perhaps the Hunger Games star has caught the eye of E.L. James for the potential casting of Anastasia Steele. There were also some fan favorites at the party, like Lily Collins and Amber Heard.

On the topic of Christian Grey, it looks like E.L. James is keeping quiet about it. “We don’t even have a filmmaker,” she said, “I have some ideas, but it may not be who people expect.” This probably rules out the top two – Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer, but not Henry Cavill, who might have been mentioned for a wile, but has never received the attention that the other candidates have been given.

If we’re going to delve deep and overanalyze, then we can take a look at James’s Twitter, where she sent a Tweet on the 27th of February to Erik Odom, who played Peter in Breaking Dawn too, an actor who has the right age and look for Christian Grey. So, does this mean that E.L. James is scouting unknown actors for the part of Christian Grey?

Mila Kunis interview with Mario Lopez from Extra About Fifty Shades Of Grey

Mario Lopez and Mila Kunis interview

In an interview with Mario Lopez, from Extra while on a tour to promote her new movie Oz the Great and Powerful, Mila let it slip about the 50 shades of grey casting rumor. From her interview, she is definitely

The rumors began after an article published in the UK tabloid magazine The Sun, which stated that the actress was keen to work in Fifty Shades of Grey, however, the rumors turned out to be nothing more than just a fabrication – The Sun never even had an interview with Kunis.

 

So it seems that the lack of rumors doesn’t explicitly constitute a lack of interest, but the real question remains – is Kunis too sexy in a dominant sense to take up the part of Anastasia Steele? She’s no stranger to sex and nudity, such as Black Swan, After Sex, Friends with Benefits and so on, but is she right to portray Anastasia Steele?

She might not be pining for the role, but the Ukrainian beauty has been clear that if offered, it’s not going to be out of the question either.

And, E.L. James won’t help us either. Since she’s keeping quiet until the casting is taking place, and won’t make any decisions until the screenplay is completed and the director is chosen. So I guess us fans have to just sit on the sidelines and watch the whole thing unfold.

At least with the potential 2014 release, we know we won’t have much longer to wait. while on a tour to promote her new movie Oz the Great and Powerful, Mila let it slip about the fifty shades of grey casting rumor. From her interview, she is definitely interested in the role and who wouldn’t be for this opportunity for the much awaited blockbuster movie to be released around the summer 2014

Mila Kunis as Anastasia

Mila-Kunis Anastasia Steele Casting

Mila Kunis has had her name bandied about in connection to Fifty Shades of Grey before, but lately it looks like the Black Swan star is considering taking up the role of Anastasia Steele in the erotic series.

Kunis has said that she thinks she’d have a lot of fun playing Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

“There are times when you just want to do something fun and different, because you’re not going to have a good time doing it,” she told the Sun

Mila-Kunis

The success of E.L. James’s books has been astronomical, with selling over 65-million copies around the world, with women of all ages hooked into the world of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. It’s unsurprising that many young actresses are desperate to get noticed for Fifty Shades of Grey the movie.

Many actors and actresses are interested in getting involved with the project from Focus Features and Universal Studios, alongside Mila Kunis, Harry Potter star Emma Watson has talked about getting a part in Fifty Shades of Grey. star-turned-actor James Deen has shown interest in the role for quite some time as well, especially since screenwriter Kelly Marcel has let slip that the movie would be an NC-17 rating. Fan favorite Ian Somerhalder has been very public about his interest in the movie as well, so it looks like we’re spoiled for choice.

Ever since the rights for Fifty Shades of Grey were picked up, there has been countless speculation on who’ll play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Anastasia Steele seems to change on a weekly basis, while Christian Grey is a fight between Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill.

The real question is whether Mila Kunis can pull of the role of Anastasia Steele. At 28-years-old she might be too old to portray a 20-year-old , not to mention that Kunis has a look to her that implies street smarts. Whether she’ll be able to convince us she’s the innocent and naïve Anastasia Steele remains another matter.

At the moment, the best fit for Anastasia Steele is 24-year-old Nina Dobrev from the Vampire Diaries, who is also Ian Somerhalder’s girlfriend, which could add an extra dimension to the Anastasia and Christian chemistry if Ian Somerhalder is cast as Christian Grey.

Rumor has it that the budget for Fifty Shades of Grey is pretty low for Hollywood standards, so it’s more likely we’re going to see lesser known actors take on the parts of Anastasia and Christian.

E.L James Talks About Fifty Shades Of Grey Casting

We’re all desperate to find out who E.L. James has in mind for Christian Grey, and so far the author of the bestselling Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has been keeping quiet on the whole thing to date.

Fans have been pushing E.L. James to drop some hints, but the Fifty Shades writer has just told fans again that casting is still quite a way away, but she has given some more insight into the casting – that there is more to Christian Grey than just looks.

Despite the movie being in the early stages with Kelly Marcel only being recently contracted as the screenwriter, fans are going crazy with polls and speculations into who they’d like to see as the illustrious Christian Grey. Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer are battling out for the top spot, while Henry Cavill and Alexander Skarsgard are creeping to the top. However, it seems all the speculation has spurred E.L. James onto twitter to remind her fans that the actual casting is still in the distance future, that the script and planning process must happen first.

E.L. James did reveal to Entertainmentwise how see sees her Christian Grey, and it’s more than just the supermodel good looks and chiseled body that most women have become obsessed with.

“I think emotional intelligence, a sense of humor are important for Christian,” she said, “Those kind of things. I feel we haven’t got far yet in the process, though.”

Screenwriter Kelly Marcel is reported to begin work on the script this December, and a large part of the casting factor will depend on the script and how Marcel portrays Christian in the adaptation.

So the casting call for Christian Grey isn’t just for Calvin Klein models, but rather for a man who can convey someone with emotional intelligence and a sense of humor. Yes, Christian Grey will still remain and a smoking hot sex god with a kink dungeon, but behind his dominant exterior he’s a man with a dark past, a heart and great sense of humor. While he’s a man of mystery to most, it’s Anastasia Steele who unravels him and shows the world who the real Christian Grey is.

When considering the perfect candidate for Christian Grey, we need to find an actor who not only matches the physical profile, as many fans have been doing, but to find someone who can play a character as complex as Christian.

Screenwriter Found for The Fifty Shades of Grey Movie

Kelly-Marcel-50-shades-of-grey-screenwriter

Screenwriter Found for The Fifty Shades of Grey Movie, but Bret Easton Ellis is not happy

It’s been on the agenda for Universal Studios and Focus Features to find a screenwriter to pen the script for the adaptations of the Fifty Shades of Grey books, but it looks like not everyone is happy with the decision.

Outspoken American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis may be considered one of the literati and is obsessed with the books by E.L. James, but that hasn’t helped the writer win the much coveted screenwriting job for the movie Fifty Shades of Grey. After his comments on the casting of Matt Bomer as Christian Grey, saying the actor was unsuitable., Easton Ellis annoyed many fans, and it perhaps caused the writer to fall out of the running. Even so, Bret Easton Ellis continues to be vocal about the movie, and it seems his reaction to the screenwriter they chose over him is not positive.

British writer, Kelly Marcel has been chosen as the official screenwriter for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, and will be working alongside E.L. James in the project. James is “thrilled” with the decision and is looking forward to collaborating with the scriptwriter for the upcoming Saving Mr. Banks movie. She has also co-created the cancelled FOX series Terra Nova.

While it’s understandable that Universal Pictures and Focus Features may prefer to remain low key and choose an up-and-coming writer for the job, however, Bret Easton Ellis disagrees.

“Kelly Marcel?!? KELLY MARCEL?!? Kelly Marcel is WRITING the script for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’?!? THIS is the movie they want to make? ARGH,” said Bret Easton Ellis after the choice was made on his Twitter stream, but his comments didn’t stop there, “Kelly Marcel: the creator of (gulp) ‘Terra Nova’ and a Mary Poppins bio-pic has been blessed by E.L. James and no one can stop her. Dear God,” continued the writer.

However, it looks like Mr. Ellis’s vocal comments have gotten under the skin of one the Fifty Shades of Grey producers, Dana Brunetti, who reacted to the backlash on Twitter.

“@BretEastonEllis Really, Bret? The day you release that ‘trailer.’ School film? You’re losing it…” are you confused? It turns out the recent release of the trailer of Bret’s film, starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen, “The Canyons,” has received a lot of critical ridicule.

Kelly Marcel on the other hand has been gracefully ignoring Bret Easton Ellis’s comments, simply Tweeting: “Beyond thrilled to be jumping aboard the 50 Shades train. Very exciting.”

Ryan Gosling isn’t the Frontrunner for movie, says E.L. James

E.L. James’s husband might have told the world that Ryan Gosling is the man in front to play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but the erotic novelist denies all accusations.

In September, E.L. James revealed she has seven actors in mind for the roles of the movie’s leading couple, and since husband Niall Leonard told the world Ryan Gosling came out on top tongues started to wag.

James put the matter right during an interview with KI-IS FM, denying that her husband revealed a trade secret to the world.

“No, that’s completely misreported,” says the author, “What happened is that his local paper… reported on my husband being the inspiration for Christian Grey. Underneath it they put a picture of Ryan Gosling, as well. So that’s how it came about.”

Whoever she has in mind, E.L. James is being very secretive about it. She confesses she does have one particular actor in mind, but continues to tease her fans. “Maybe,” she says when asked, “I’m not going to tell you.”

At the moment the actors whose names are being connected with the production include Jake Gyllenhaal, Ian Somerhalder, Channing Tatum, Henry Cavill and Alexander Skarsgard.

For the role of Anastasia Steele, the most popular choice is Alexis Bledel and the author’s own pick The Descendants Shailene Woodley. Emma Watson has been rumored for consideration, but the Harry Potter star denied she’s seen a script, which makes sense, since there is no scriptwriter as of yet. However, it looks like Emma is open to the part if the script is good.

The adaptation of the Fifty Shades of Grey novels are bound to be a hit, with the trilogy hitting the bestselling number one spot for weeks on end and rocketing to the top as one of the fastest selling books of all time. The fan base is endless and Universal Pictures and Focus Features have a guaranteed blockbuster on their hands regardless of the casting, director or screenwriter. The casting of the movie might be a year away, but little by little the choices are being whittled down on a daily basis.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie Trailer!

Fifty Shades of Grey The MovieAs more and more book lovers dive into the 50 Shades trilogy, it’s no surprise that a movie would spark excitement and create a buzz that’s heard from sea to sea. All of the work that goes into producing such an anticipated movie makes for a lot to gossip about: fans want to know who will play Christian and Ana, what will the movie leave out, how will it translate to film? Luckily, although the actual production is far off, there is still a ton to talk about in pre-production.

The elements of The Movie Fifty Shades Of Grey that truly determine the content and details of how the movie will grow out of the book are the production team and the screenwriter. The movie will be produced by Universal Pictures and the production team will be led by Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti. The screenwriter is yet to be determined but there have been a few guesses as to who will fill that role. Regardless of who is awarded the job, the team is sure to have their hands full when it comes to satisfying the hungry fans of Fifty Shades.

One of the biggest topics of speculation is who will play the two main characters: Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. These characters are multi-dimensional, complex and have intense personality traits. A big question is whether it would be better to cast well known stars or to choose Hollywood newcomers who may be able to completely embody Christian and Ana without any preconceived notions. There are multiple well known names floating around for each of the main characters but only time will tell who will transform into Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

Yet another strong factor in creating a movie’s success is the score. The music in 50 Shades of Grey and the following books is key in creating the right mood for Christian and Ana’s sex-capades, their deep conversations and even their breakfasts.
