With the success of '50 Shades Of Grey' in book form, it was inevitable that a film version would be getting rushed through, and there's no doubt that it's already set to be an equal commercial smash even though plot changes, cast and crew line-ups have yet to be confirmed. The rumours are swirling around about those matters now, and The Hollywood Reporter are reporting that actress Shailene Woodley is the favoured choice of the book's author EL James to play the main role in the film.
Woodley's biggest role so far came playing George Clooney's character's daughter in 'The Descendants' last year, and if she took this role you can imagine this would take her another level of fame. 'Twilight' producer Marty Bowen agrees, saying "The next big stars are the actress who plays Anastasia Steele and the actor who plays Christian Grey. They will certainly have an invitation to the A-list table."
The reports come a couple of weeks after 'Harry Potter' actress Emma Watson distanced herself from rumours that she'd in fact be taking on the role. "I haven't read the book, I haven't a read a script, nothing," Watson told Entertainment Weekly. "There are so many movies you become attached to when I've literally never even received a phone call. It was the same way with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - I never even saw a script!"
