Fifty Shades of Grey Movie: New Details!

by at . Comments

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is moving forward, with two big names now on board. To produce it, that is. Still no word on who will play Christian and Ana.

Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, the team behind The Social Network, will produce the movie version of E.L. James' novel, giving it a credibility boost.

In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, Universal co-chairman Donna Langley said of the film: “At its core, Fifty Shades of Grey is a complex love story."

"It requires a delicate and sophisticated hand to bring it to the big screen. Mike and Dana’s credits more than exemplify what we need in creative partners."

The books, about an innocent college girl drawn into the world of bondage and S&M by an attractive billionaire, have already sold 31 million copies worldwide.

As for the details everyone's most curious about - who will play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey - we may have to wait awhile, according to E.L. James.

"We are so far away from casting the Fifty films," the writer tweeted last week. "No one has been ruled out... no one is ruled in. Just so you all know."

Names like the Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum have been floated ... who do you have in mind?

Omg, Jensen Ackles is mighty gorgeous for the part. Yesssssss, he can definitely be Christian with the long hair. So looking forward to who gets the main character roles because it's going to come down to who portrays the character best. Kim Catrell oud be awesome as Elena.

So agree with Christian Bale for the role of Christian Grey and as for Anastasia it should be a fresh face. Someone new and upcoming. Really would not go see the movie if anyone from Twilight gets the role of Christian or Ana. I truly don't think they will do the roles justice and it would ruin my entire infatuation for the books.

I think Alexis Bledel, from Gilmore Girls, would fit Anastasia's character perfectly!!

Christian has to be played by James Franco and Anastasia has to be someone fresh and undiscovered who suits the role perfectly looks and all. the books will be ruined for me if someone cliche like Meagan gale plays Ana

Christian Bale is the obvious choice for...Can't believe he isn't listed in poll. Remember American Psycho? And he already has the name! (the book also refers to Mr Grey as the Dark Knight) fitting.
