Rumors have been circulating about the Fifty Shades of Grey film casting since the e-book hit the web last year, but author E.L. James hasn’t shared her picks — until now.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Shailene Woodley demonstrated her acting chops in the Oscar-nominated The Descendants and is said to have caught the eye of Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James.”
While this is all hearsay — and E.L. James even tweeted that it is too early to talk about casting on Aug. 8 — the Secret Life star has been a frontrunner on many polls, mostly due to her age and resemblance to the description of the series’ leading lady, Anastasia Steele.
And regardless of who plays Ana and Christian in the potential film, Twilight producer Marty Bowen thinks they will be Hollywood elite.
"The next big stars are the actress who plays Anastasia Steele and the actor who plays Christian Grey," he said. "They will certainly have an invitation to the A-list table."
What do you think? Should Shailene Woodley play Ana? Weigh in below, and then take our casting poll!
