    Lol. The phrase 'actor turn-downs' is going to haunt this movie project.

    I seriously cannot see Emma Watson going for it, she's too savvy and of course has no need for money.

    Perhaps Tom Hanks will fill the male lead, after he was in that Da Vinci Code rubbish I can imagine he is willing to take anything.

    Nah, Tom Hanks is too old. But I can definitely see Benedict as Christian Grey.

    Yeah, I meant Tom as a joke, but seriously, Benedict Cumberbatch? There's no way he would do it, he's got the ability to pick and choose right now. This will definitely be a B-list movie.

    Wait... They're making a Fifty Shades film?

    How are they going to do that without just making porn? Isn't the whole book just BDSM?

    Maybe it's not just money - maybe she's trying to show that she can act in a range of genres. I remember hearing she auditioned for Lisbet Salander (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), which would have been a big shift from Hermione.

    I can imagine many people rushing to the box office seeking an answer to that question

    I haven't fully read the books, but from what I know of the story, how exactly are they gonna make a film out of it? Won't it basically be a porn movie?

    Edit: Actually, why am I asking this when I've watched the film 9 songs? :lol: but even that I didn't really understand much point in, as it seemed pretty much like porn.

    I thought this was still just a rumour?

    If not: Time to wave goodbye to any integrity you once had, Emma.


    (For the record, I'm not bothered by the adult content, I'm bothered by its wholly inaccurate and unhealthy portrayal of a dom/sub relationship.)

    Hasn't she grown it longer again lately? Or is this a wig?

    I think it has grown longer again, though I'm not sure if it's that long yet.

    Plus I doubt Emma Watson would do 50 Shades, it's not her type of role at all.
    And also a quick search -http://www.dnaindia.com/entertainment/report_emma-watson-not-attached-to-50-shades-flick_1811927

    Basically, don't listen to any gossip sites, if they she is or she isn't, take it with a pinch of salt.

    If this is true, then I feel really quite sorry for Emma and I really do not understand why she (or any other respected and beautiful actress or actor) would ever agree to play in such movie. This book is erotica and there's nothing wrong with the genre, but '50 Shades of Grey' simply too full of plain abuse towards the main character and does not spread the best message about BDSM etc, from what I've heard about the book during my time on the cosy internet~

    Well, it's an attractive prospect... But if that's why you want to watch it, buying the DVD would be a better idea.

    Well yeah, isn't being socially acceptable (i.e. mainstream) porn the point of the entire franchise?
