Will Mila Kunis star in the sexy Fifty Shades of Grey movie trilogy?

That's the current buzz going around. The Black Swan actress and Esquire Sexiest Woman Alive is allegedly the frontrunner to play Anastasia Steele.

Emphasis on allegedly. The Kunis rumor looks to be just that.

Not that she wouldn't be deserving, necessarily. The 26-year-old's girl-next-door charm (and beauty) could make her a great fit as Ana, Christian Grey's lover.

Increasingly unhinged screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis, who wanted to pen the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, quickly bashed the woman chosen Monday to do so instead.

One of the film's producers slammed Ellis right back as a result.

Ellis tweeted Monday: "Kelly Marcel?!? KELLY MARCEL?!? Kelly Marcel is WRITING the script for 'Fifty Shades of Grey'?!? THIS is the movie they want to make? ARGH!"

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie announced a key player today.

Sadly, it's not the actors cast as Christian or Ana, but screenwriter Kelly Marcel will play a huge role in bringing the erotic young adult novel trilogy to life.

Marcel was the creator of Terra Nova and penned the new Disney film Saving Mr. Banks, which stars Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson and Colin Farrell.

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie offers quite a departure from that in terms of subject matter, but producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti lauded her abilities.

Is Ryan Gosling set to play the lead role of Christian in Fifty Shades of Grey?

Not exactly. Or at all. But the rumor mill has run wild with this one. Why?

According to reports, author E. L. James' husband Niall Leonard thinks Gosling would be perfect and he is now the frontrunner for the role. Only those reports aren't accurate.

"As usual, it's all been misreported," she said. "What happened is that his local paper ... reported on my husband being the inspiration for Christian Grey."

The question of who will play Christian and Ana remains unanswered, but one small but important role in the wildly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie has been filled.

Carla Gugino of Watchmen fame will play Elena Lincoln, a character referred to as “Mrs. Robinson” by Anastasia Steele in the book and a family friend of Christian Grey’s mother.

The studio behind the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is taking its casting seriously, most importantly Ana and Christian. Author EL James says she has three actors and four actresses in mind.

Katie Couric sexed up her talk show Monday in honor of Erika Leonard, a.k.a. Fifty Shades of Grey author E L James, and not just with sensual crimson lighting.

Couric herself drew cheers when she appeared at the top of the hour in a sleeveless black leather dress and sky-high stilettos - to Rihanna's "S&M," obvi.

"Relax - this won't hurt at all," the host joked, introducing herself as our "mistress" for the day ... we should be so lucky. As for her guest of honor?

EL James is a shy, normal-looking lady in her 40s who speaks softly and is just about the total opposite of who you would expect wrote the bestseller.

James, as shocked as anyone by all the attention her work is getting, was asked who she'd pick to star in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

She was coy about this query, saying only that she has three unnamed actors and four actresses in mind for who should play Christian and Ana. Hmm.

According to Katie's Facebook polls, fans would love Gilmore Girls' Alexis Bledel and Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder ... Matt Bomer is also a popular pick.

Who would you like to see in the lead roles? Tell us below, and follow the jump for a clip of James answering fan questions on yesterday's Katie ...

She's shot down the rumor once before, but Fifty Shades of Grey and Emma Watson have been linked together again ... along with Ryan Gosling.

That's the latest Grey gossip anyway. Emma Watson as Anastasia Steele and Gosling as the titular Christian Grey in the film adaptation of the century.

What does the Perks of Being a Wallflower star have to say about it?

"She's laughing, a little bit nervously as I'm sure everybody was when they read those books," co-star Nina Dobrev told Ryan Seacrest earlier today.

"She would be far more interested if he were playing Christian Grey," the Vampire Diaries star said of Emma's apparent infatuation with Mr. Gosling.

"I guess that's all it takes."

We guess. It's unclear how serious Nina was/is about Emma's interest in the film (she previously denied any involvement), but you're now up to date.

What do you think: Emma Watson as Ana Steele?

 

What about Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey?

Lucy Hale has made a big name for herself on Pretty Little Liars.

But she would make an absolutely huge name for herself if she earned the role of Anastasia Steele in the big screen adaption of Fifty Shades of Grey. Hale has already expressed interest in the part, but she tempers expectations a bit in the latest issue of Haute Muse.

“I’m definitely a huge fan of the books. Obviously I’d be thrilled to be a part of it, but I think it’s in the very beginning stages of it all," the actress tells the magazine.

Hale has also signed a recording contract and will release a country album some time in 2013. She hopes, at least.

“We’re exploring what we want my sound to be and what I want to talk about in my album. It’s kind of hard with my schedule to fit in both the filming and music, so we’re hoping to release it by next year. It’s a very exciting time in my life.”

Do you want to see Lucy Hale as Anastasia Steele?

People's dreams of seeing Matt Bomer in Fifty Shades of Grey may still be realized, but this EW cover making the online rounds is nothing but a fake.

A pretty convincing, seductive fake!

The image, showing the White Collar star's blue eyes and flawless face, was leaked to the web with the headline "Fifty Shades of Grey: The Wait is Over" ...

Matt Bomer as Christian Grey

"Matt Bomer talks about changing the white collar for a grey tie," the fan-made cover continues, implying that Bomer locked down the role of Christian Grey.

Casting for the movie role of the mysterious billionaire with an affinity for bondage / S&M has become a spectator sport for fans of E.L. James' bestseller.

Filmmakers confirm that Bomer's casting is just wishful thinking, though.

Dana Brunetti, one of the co-producers of the big screen adaptation, said on Twitter: "All of the rumors on #FiftyShades are just that - rumors. No one has been cast in any role."

"We have to get a writer and director first."

Bomer has been a fan favorite for Grey for a while now, but Bret Easton Ellis (who made no secret of wanting to adapt the saga before being dropped from consideration), said the notion of casting openly gay Bomer is ludicrous.

You tell us: Would Matt Bomer be a good Christian Grey?
