Angelina Jolie to Direct Fifty Shades of Grey Movie?

by at . Comments

The topic of who should play Christian and Ana in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie has become an ongoing fantasy casting game.

Young Hollywood fan favorites such as Ian Somerhalder and Lucy Hale have been rumored for the big roles, but who will direct the picture?

Possibly one HUGE name you never saw coming.

None other than Angelina Jolie is in talks to direct the movie, based on the best-selling erotic novel by E.L. James, according to Deadline.

The Oscar winner has reportedly had "a conversation or two" about stepping up to direct Fifty Shades of Grey, which Universal Pictures bought the rights to.

A close Angelina Jolie source denies these reports, saying the newly-engaged 37-year-old actress is "completely focused on her next film, Maleficent."

It's hard to see Jolie tied to the film, but not because of her schedule - Fifty Shades is still a long ways off. It's just a little out of her creative wheelhouse.

Oscar-winning A-list actress and director. Poorly-written Twilight-inspired fan fiction turned softcore mommy porn. Somehow these things don't mesh.

Or do they? Should Angie direct the film, and if not, who should? Who do you think should star in the key roles? Tell us in the comments below!

I agree with whoever said Robert Buckley! Copper looking hair, fit, beautiful. Hasn't played in anything real big, so it could be a perfect break out role for him. Someone who has played another big role could ruin the movie. Pick Robert. ;)

I think that Alexis Bledel would be perfect for Anastasia. She is pretty but not too pretty and she is a little awkward and has that innocent look that can easily grow to something more sophisticated and she can play younger then she is. I think that Christian should be played by Chris Hamsworth. Currently he is a little too bulked up do to his role as Thor but he fit perfectly in some of his earlier photos. And lets face it, she is so hot.
