The guessing game of who will star in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey continues today with a new young actress linked to the role of Ana:

Dakota Johnson!

The film, directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, is set to hit theaters in August 2014 which seems increasingly unlikely, as NO ONE has been cast.

All we have are names we know are NOT attached to the film, and people rumored to be in the running for the roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

The latest speculation: Charlie Hunnam as Christian and Dakota Johnson, the 23-year-old daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, as Ana.

She’s appeared in The Social Network, 21 Jump Street, The Five-Year Engagement, and Ben and Kate. What do you think? Can you see her in the role?

Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam is the latest star to be rumored as a potential lead in Fifty Shades of Grey. But will (or should) that come to fruition?

Rumors began swirling Tuesday that the 33-year-old British actor had emerged as "the producers' choice" to play the male lead in the new movie.

The rumor originated from a report on Twitchfilm, linking Hunnam to the role and citing industry insiders claiming he was being sought after.

Sources close to Hunnam, however, say that no casting decisions have been made on the project ... so not a definite no, but clearly not a yes.

Fantasy casting of tormented billionaire Christian Grey and his plaything Ana Steele in the adaptation of E.L. James' bestseller is an online pastime.

For years, it seems. What do you think of this latest speculation? Would Charlie Hunnam make a good Christian Grey? Vote in THG's survey!

British model Cara Delevingne, who has walked in countless runway shows and fronted top-tier fashion brands, is reportedly hoping to transition into acting.

In the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

According to reports, Delevingne auditioned for the prized role of Anastasia Steele in the erotic film trilogy based on the hit novel written by E.L. James.

The movie will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, who just happens to good friends with the young star, 20, so perhaps she has the inside track?

It's unclear, but Cara were to land the role in the film, it would catapult her into another level of fame, and prove that her acting chops match her looks.

That's true even if the UK beauty landed the role of Ana's hot best friend - rather than Ana herself - which has also been rumored in recent days.

What do you think? Should Cara play Ana?

It's still to be determined who will play Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but it's reportedly become clear who will not be cast:

Ian Somerhalder and Garrett Hedlund are both out of the running, according to insiders, along with Stephen Amell, narrowing the list of candidates.

Hedlund, 28, was reportedly approached about playing the S&M-obsessed lead in the film version of E.L. James' erotic novel, but turned it down.

"Doing a possible trilogy was too big a commitment, and producers wouldn't let him do just one film," says the source of Kirsten Dunst's boyfriend.

Ian Somerhalder, 34, is out too - though he openly coveted the part.

Another day, yet another fun Fifty Shades of Grey movie cast rumor.

Only this time, it's less of a rumor and more a fan's fantasy casting.

Today's answer to the age-old question of who should play Christian Grey is Garrett Hedlund ... at least as far as this unofficial 50 Shades trailer is concerned.

Can you see the actor (Country Strong, On the Road, Tron) in the role?

We've seen tons of other fan-made trailers (such as this one lobbying for Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel), but this is the first we know of to feature Hedlund.

Or a woman's moaning interwoven with the music of White Zombie.

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie now has a release date - August 1, 2014 - and a director in Sam Taylor-Johnson. It's just missing one important thing:

A cast.

50 Shades of Grey Trilogy Covers

Focus Features' adaptation of the erotic novel by E.L. James will heat up movie screens next summer, but it's STILL unclear who will bring said heat to life.

Debate over who will play Anastasia Steele, the innocent young protagonist, and who will play Christian Grey, her controlling lover, has run rampant.

As always, any news about 50 Shades of Grey rekindles the online fantasy casting game, but with just 13 months to go, they need a cast like now.

An announcement is coming soon, you can bank on it. In the meantime, vote on who you think should play Ana and Christian in THG's surveys below!

If you've been quivering with anticipation to see your favorite dirty, sexy book realized on the big screen ... you're going to have to wait a little while longer.

But at least you have an actual date to look forward to now!

That's right, the release date is set for August 1, 2014.

We just learned that Sam Taylor-Johnson would direct, but apart from that, the film that sought to cash in on last year's insane hype is coming along rather slowly.

Still no word on the dueling million dollar questions of who will play Christian or who will play Anastasia in the most talked-about roles in the industry.

Who can you see as the leads? Tell us after the jump!

It's official: Sam Taylor-Johnson has been hired to direct Fifty Shades of Grey!

For those who don't know, Sam, the 46-year-old director of Nowhere Boy, ended up marrying the star of that film, Aaron Johnson, who is half her age at 23.

Which kind of makes this choice perfect, given the theme of the novel (I really shouldn't call it a novel).

Aaron Johnson, in fact, has been talked about in the past to star as Christian Grey in the film. Whether that just got more or less likely now that his wife is directing remains to be seen.

Based on a couple of recent comments he made, Arrow star Stephen Amell is reportedly out of the running for the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey.

Earlier this spring, the Canadian heart throb had more than a few hearts aflutter when he confirmed he “had a meeting” about starring in the film.

He's singing a different tune now, however.

“Was on a flight back to LA with no movie, so I grabbed Fifty Shades of Grey and burned through it,” the actor, 32, wrote on Facebook last week.

Apparently he was not impressed.
