Hypable

Hypable has learned that a recent Fifty Shades of Grey rumor, which surfaced on the internet a few days ago, is false.

Reports said that Emma Watson was being considered for the lead role of Anastasia Steele in E.L. James’ hit trilogy.

Hypable has spoken to a rep for Watson who revealed that there is “no truth” to this rumor.

All we know for sure about the Fifty Shades film is that it will be produced by Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, who also took on The Social Network.

British-born E.L. James has been spending time in Los Angeles lately to find a director and cast her leads. A release date has not been set.

    Good. 

  • GeekGirl101

    Wait, they’re making a movie off that crap? WHAT? 

    • sarahd15

      Probably because some of our society accepts that “crap” in book form, so I’m sure they assume they can make some extra money off of it in movie form… sigh. Sad, sad day.

      • GeekGirl101

         But…won’t it technically be a porno….well a bad one, but still a porno, not exactly a R rated book is it?

  • Tom

    Obviously. Emma wouldn’t even consider that role.

    • kait

       Exactly. She’s proven herself to be a classy lady.

      • sarahd15

        Agreed!!

    Yes, Emma is too tall and naturally blonde to play Ana. Plus, E.L. James has already said in the EW article that she wants “beautiful unknowns” to play the leads. I think she realizes that the actress who plays Ana should be naturally brunette, small, and American–she’s written that way. The studio may be able to convince her to cast Henry Cavill or someone as Christian, but I just have a feeling she’ll stick to those things above for Ana. I’d be excited to see a new brunette actress in the role. If they stick to the best stuff about the books, and deal with the sexual content well, it could be a great romance on screen, especially the second book (which I’m reading now).

    • Tom

      appropriate surname.

  • annie

    well duh!

  • Luigi_barraza

    Like hell she would.

    Wait, someone actually spread a rumor about this? Lol wut?? Seriously though, good to know she isn’t. 

  • iTuneUOut

    I got so nervous when I heard this rumor!! Thanks Hypable for the reassurance that my childhood hero would never stoop this low. 

  • Brittany

    Emma has way too much class to be in a trashy film like that

  • Aimee

    My relief is palpable.

  • http://twitter.com/NatashaPeartree Natasha Pereira

    OH THANK GOD!

  • LillyCPBMG

    Her career will die if she does this film.

    • sarahd15

      She would never consider something like this, no worries!

  • HungaGurl

    good cuz she isnt a slut.

    • http://twitter.com/NatashaPeartree Natasha Pereira

      Just to be clear… Ana Steele is not a slut… weak, self-deprecating, dependent, pathetic, etc, yes… but not slut.  Sexual autonomy is every woman’s right. 

      • Ssahrishkhan08

         I agree! Ana Steele is a horrid character, but not a slut. If anything Christian Grey is a slut.

        • Ida

          Let’s not slut-shame guys either, please!

          • HungaGurl

            i am not accusing the charactor Anna Steele of being a slut. i am saying that it would take an actress WAY to “in touch” with her body ie. a porn star to play that role.

          • Ida

            I’m not sure you intended your reply for me, but it still have really gross implications about what your thoughts on what’s proper when it comes to other peoples sexuality.

          • Ida

            What is grammar i do not now:P

    • Laura

      Please, no slut-shaming. Every woman has the right to do whatever she wants with her body, whether that’s waiting till marriage or having one-night stands every week.

      The are many things wrong with 50 Shades of Grey, but sexual freedom isn’t one of them.

      • Guest

        nah mate… shes a slut

        • Laura

          And people wonder why misogyny is still such a problem in today’s society. 

  • hpatdh33

    That would be another huge role for her.

  • Glaciusx

    Emma would probably turn her nose up at the script. She’s beyond that cheap and stupid role. 

  • herMOANe

    That would’ve been the hottest thing ever, but she’s much more respectable than that.

  • Dev

    Thus the whole world let out a sigh of relief. Even the announced producers denied the rumors. Thank goodness. I really don’t want Emma Watson associated with the film. There are better projects out there our ‘Hermione’ can apparate to.

  • Alex

    1. oh well good thing that got debunked earlier.

    2. OH THANK GOD IT’S NOT TRUE!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001323469179 Arialle Renee

    THANK GOD!!

  • Me

    As beautiful as she is, I wouldn’t be able to deal with it. No. Just….. No.

  • Andy

    I honestly do not understand how they are planning on making this into a film, unless they decide on an NC17 rating

    *coughandhaveitcompletlyrewrittencoughcough

    • Samuel

      yeah they’ll probably have to have obscured, ambiguous sex scenes every couple of minutes…

  • http://twitter.com/xhpfanatic Grace Chen

    Thank god, I would be devastated if Emma Watson worked on this atrocious movie.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maria-Wang/542480760 Maria Wang

    hahaha.  No.  Even if she is being considered, she won’t agree

  • Samuel

    Pretty sure she wouldn’t accept the role either way…

  • http://twitter.com/BeccaPhoenix16 Rebecca Feliciano

    Thank the lord!

  • Guest

    THANK GOD! i respect Emma way too much!! Anastasia is the most annoying book character of all time.

  • Guest

    I will kill myself if she takes this role as a f***ing moronic woman who doesn’t have an email address. 

  • Katie

    Emma Watson would never take a role like that… this is the girl who is going to be a movie called “Noah” we’re talking about… come on. 

  • Stephanie G

    My vote… is for Sasha Grey. Think about it, you want to put men in those seats.. give her the role. She looks innocent enough and shes a porn star. She would be perfect. 

    • Teto85

      Sasha would be a good choice.  

  • VoldyBored

    I’m going to host a prayer vigil for gratitude! She wouldn’t take a role on a plot like that.

  • Kaysanch19

    Holding out for Emilia Clarke to be cast tbh.

  • Jack

    Too bad. I’d love to see her tied up. ;)

  • sarahd15

    Uh, yeah no, no way a rumor like this would be true. Not concerning Emma Watson lol.

  • Sundas

    You do realise that 50 Shades was originally Twilight fanfiction, right? Just cast Kristen Stewart and be done with it.

  • Amanda

    Emmy Rossum and Ian Somerhalder :)

  • cmfh

    I VOTE ME TO PLAY THE ROLE OF ANA:)

  • Yepitsanon

    And thus the humanity sighed out of relief. She has proven herself to be a classy woman. She’s beyond that crap.
