In news that I hope is PURELY a rumor, it’s been announced that Emma Watson is at the top of the list of actresses producers want for the role of Anastasia Steele in the movie adaption of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’.
Actress Emma Watson is in talks to take on the role of Anastasia Steel in the movie adaptation of “Fifty Shades Of Grey”.
The actress is the hot favourite to be chosen by producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti.
The 22-year-old is said to have the right looks for the part, combining a degree of innocence with the acting skills to portray the young graduate who gets swept into a world of sado-masochistic sex with a kinky billionaire, Christian Grey, reports showbizspy.com.
Others in the frame to play Anastasia are believed to be Elizabeth Olsen, Mila Kunis and Kristen Stewart.
Man, I sincerely hope the role does not go to Emma. She is NOT the kind of actress that could pull it off. Not that I think Emma’s a bad actress, but I don’t think she’s the TYPE of actress who could pull off doing the things Anastasia does in the book. I’m about half way through the second book in the trilogy right now (I’m getting there….slowly), and Emma is way too vanilla. The actress is going to need a bit of darkness to her. I think Elizabeth Olsen would be PERFECT (below). After watching her in ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’, I know she’d be capable of pulling this off.
We all know you’ve read the book…. what do you think about Emma taking on the role of Ana?
