If you have heard the latest Hollywood gossip surrounding Angelina Jolie’s directing role for the saucy book “Fifty Shades Of Grey”, then you’ll be happy to hear that the rumors are not true. The latest rumor mill suggests that since Angelina is a mother and “Fifty Shades” is basically mommy porn, the two would seem natural to go hand-in-hand. Not so fast!
Focus Features and Universal Pictures are putting a plan together to adapt the erotic novel, but the reports that it will be directed by Angelina has been highly exaggerated. If you’ve read anything about the novel, then you may already know that it started out as “Twilight” fan-fiction. If you’ve read the novel at all, then you are aware that it’s really poorly written and super cheesy. You know how they always say that the books are usually better than their movie counterparts? In the case of “Fifty Shades Of Grey”, we’re going to fathom a guess that the opposite is true.
Still, Angelina has not been attached to this particular movie. There also haven’t been any discussions with Angelina’s team about the possibility of her directing the movie either. More importantly, we should be questioning who will be taking the lead roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Who should tackle Christian and Ana?
