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!

Ok I love this book. And I think the best guy to play Gray is Henry Cavel he is so gorgeous. I dont care who plays Ana just as long as it isnt Kristen Stewart!

The part was made for Ryan Gosling. After reviewing all the possible actors, he is the one who fits it best. Get an Anastasis who is very pretty and petite. Ryan Gosling is the one.

Ryan Gosling should play Christian! How has no one said that yet. He's perfect for the part!
Emma Stone or Amanda Syfreid as Anna.

Peter Porte (Ricky, from the Young and the Restless). After reading the 3 books and watching my favorite soap opera, Peter is the perfect match. He's so good at being sexy and mysterious and has this twisted side to him. PERFECT FIT! http://www.imdb.com/name/nm243...

I'm thinking maybe even Justin Timberlake could manage the role of Grey.
Emma Stone could work as Ana...if you've seen "The House Bunny" then you know she can manage a more low-key character. Maybe also Zoey Deschanel. Linsday Lohan could be fantastic in a role like that, if she could keep her s**t together long enough to get through filming.

Alexander Skardgard is way too old at this point. You might as well consider Stephen Moyer or Ryan Kwanten at that point.
I nominate Tyler Hoechlin or Cam Gigandet for Grey.
I nominate Charlize Theron as Mrs. Robinson.
I nominate some young Latino actor who is cute but not so gorgeous it makes you want to cry...for Jose. I think it will be crap movie anyway but I could see it being better within its medium than the crap book. I probably will not see it and if they cast Kristen Stewart in ANY role (which they likely will) I will stay as far away from it as possible. That said, the character Ana is as flat and unidemnsional as Kristen's acting that Kristen might be a great fit LOL.
