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 believe that the leads should go to talented actors who can make their big break with the movie itself. My opinion for Christian Grey would be Alexander Skarsgard from True Blood. I watch him on there and i feel he would make the PERFECT Mr. Grey. I am not sure on who I would want to play Ana yet but I am interested to see how Emmy Rossom would play the part. I just don't think Kristen Steward should be in the running here or any young hollywood actors would be good for this movie. The book is almost porn and if the movie will be anything like that. We don't need tweens watching this movie. Just my opinion..

I think Anne Hathaway should play the part as Ana. And Kim Cantrell as Mrs. Robinson, and Ian Somldholder.

I think that Paul Walker for Christian Grey would be awesome I don't see anyone mentioning him.

Christian-Ian Somerhalder
Ana-Kristen Stewart
Mrs. Robinson- Michelle Pfeiffer
Ana- ?

Jared Leto would be perfect for Christian on so many levels. Ana has so many options, but Christian has to be just right, and I feel that Jared can make that happen.

I think Eric Dane should play Christian. I know he's a little old but it's very easy to make him look a little younger. And he's smoking' hot! As for Ana, no one mainstream. If Kristen Stewart is casted for her, I won't see it. Maybe she cold play the 'Ghost Girl' in book number 2, but not as Ana. Kate= Blake Lively. Duh. And Mrs.Robinson should be Madonna. She's blonde in the second book and she has plenty of experience in the Dom/Sub world. (erotica! Hello!) She's perfect for the part.
