Rumor Control: ‘No truth’ to Emma Watson being considered for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ lead

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.
