Fifty Shades of Grey is looking for a movie star. Alex Pettyfer, Matt Boomer, Chris Pine, Ian Somerhalder, Stephen Amell, Ed Westwick, Alex Skarsgard, Chace Crawford, Henry Cavill or Ryan Gosling. Which actor do you prefer?
In July 2012, it was announced: Fifty Shades of Grey will be on the Big Screen. However, still today, we don’t know who will be the director (Gus Van Sant?) or the cast.
Certainly, we know few things about the future movie based on the erotic books by E.L. James. But the greatest secret is about the protagonist. What actor will they choose?
Christian Grey is a young handsome successful businessman. Last year, Random House increased its sales in $400 million thanks to the great impact of these books full of sex, desire and sadomasochism.
Then, the protagonist of the movie should be chosen carefully. And from Alex Pettyfer (Gus Van Sant favorite actor) to Matt Boomer (protagonist of TV series White Collar), different actors are been studying.
Chris Pine was one of the first candidates, but in recent months other names sound louder.
Ian Somerhalder (protagonist of Vampire Chronicles) is the favorite actor of E.L. James.
Stephen Amell (Arrow) would be another choice. He even had a meeting with Universal but afterwards, he wrote on his facebook wall: ‘I hope they film Fifty Shades of Grey, but not with me.’
Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl) is the favorite actor on the web. Maybe because Chuck, the role which made him famous, is very similar to Christian Grey.
Other candidates are: Alex Skarsgard (True Blood), Chace Crawford (Nate Archibald in Gossip Girl), Henry Cavill (current Superman) or Ryan Gosling (Drive).
Definitely, a difficult choice. The books have been a success but also a big scandal. Some critics have written that the books are immoral and some libraries have deleted them from catalogues.
The film will be important, no doubt. But important for its success of its failure. Every is nervous now!
Enjoy your day, Yareah Magazine friends.
