Fifty Shades of Grey movie casting rumors are heating up. It was revealed last month, Sam-Taylor Johnson, will direct and the film will be released on August 1, 2014. Which means, Fifty Shades is in pre-production, but who will star as Christian Grey and his lovely Anastasia. Are the Robert Pattinson rumors true? Here’s the latest gossip and news from Hollywood’s casting couch.
For Sam-Taylor Johnson a Pisces, she’s thrilled to be chosen as Director of the hotly anticipated film. She says, “I am excited to be charged with the evolution of Fifty Shades of Grey from page to screen,” Taylor-Johnson told E! News exclusively. “For the legions of fans, I want to say that I will honor the power of Erika’s book and the characters of Christian and Anastasia. They are under my skin, too.” After all, her husband is 20 years younger than her. Lucky girl!
When it comes to casting, Fifty Shades of Grey fans, have a few favorites. They range from Ian Somerhalder to Chris Hemsworth as Christian Grey. Others hope that Mila Kunis or Rooney Mara will star as Anastasia.
Astrologically speaking, Sam-Taylor Johnson, will have a HUGE influence on who’s chosen to star in Fifty Shades of Grey. She likes her men young, so Astrochicks predicts she will stay close to the characters age in the book. As a Pisces, Sam will need to fall in love with him also. We believe the frontrunners for Christian Grey are Chris Hemsworth, Ian Somerhalder and Robert Pattison.
Chris Hemsworth a Leo, definitely can capture Christian Grey’s passionate and kinky side. Ian Somerhalder, who’s smile says it all, can channel his inner Sagittarius sex demon. Robert Pattinson a Taurus, who definitely harnessed his sexy and wild side in Twilight, could be ready for another trilogy. After all, Fifty Shades of Grey was inspired by Twilight and Edward.
Whoever, EL James chooses as Christian Grey and Anastasia, we think Fifty Shades of Grey will be a hit. After selling 60 million books worldwide, most women will want to see the cinematic version of the book. We would like Robert Pattinson to star as Christian Grey for selfish reason, he will finally rid himself of Kristen Stewart. Or maybe not, his role as Christian Grey might be a turn on and make her want him even more. Either way, fans will know who EL James chose by August 2014. Stay tuned.
