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 think William Levi would be a great Christian....Sexy, intense, great body!

YES. I think she should direct it and also play the role as Mrs. Robinson!!!!!

It has to be either Henry Cavil, or Alexander Skarsgard!! Either would be perfect. The brooding eyes, the sexiness. For Ana, I would like an unknown actress, all the others just don't fit. I am tired of the same starlets that can't act. Charlize Theron for Elena, Adam Rodriguez from CSI Miami for Jose

Adrien Grenier is who I envision physically for Christian. However, he would have to do some serious acting. I also like Ryan Phillipe.

Jolie would make a perfect "witch troll"....Elena Lincoln!

Taylor Kitsch for Christian Grey! He's got that dark, intense brooding thing going for him, not to mention he's drop dead gorgeous! Unknown for Ana! Go away Angie, leave this film alone. Bet she wishes she was 10 years younger.

Alexander Skarsgard would be the perfect Christian Grey and has anyone thought maybe Emily Blunt for Ana!!
