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!

Christian Grey will see you now. Behold, the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer and its nine hottest moments.


Matt Barr needs to play Christian Grey- no doubt about it!


I HOPE the cast "unknown" actors for this movie, it would be better. It would definitely ruin it if they cast some "A Lister"


Dan Payne should play Christian Grey!!


I think Ryan rynolds for Christian!


Ian Somerhalder is the perfect fit for Christian Grey. There is seriously no other fit! Everything about him screams Christian Grey. As for Ana, I'm conflicted because there is just so many choices, however, I cannot see Lucy Hale or Emma Stone. I think that should be someone who is not well known!


Alexis Bledel as Ana and Ian somerhalder as Christian. Im torn with Mrs Robinson though, Holly hunter might be a good choice.


Alexis Bledel as Ana
Ian Somerhalder as Christian
Michelle Pfeiffer as Mrs. Robinson


Yes Kim Cattrall will make the perfect Mrs. Robinson she almost all but done in with Sex in The City.


Ghaaa, I think Angelina would make a better Mrs. Robinson since she is a bitch troll homewrecker. Christian - Michael Fassbender and his sexy gray eyes.
Ana - I agree Emma Stone.


Who wanted this HO-BAG to direct this movie.
What a perfect choice!!!
