Emma Watson to star in “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie?

Emma Watson Anastasia Steele

Who should play Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie?

Since Universal Pictures and Focus Features acquired the film rights for the wildly popular book, there’s one big question on everyone’s minds: who should play Ana in the flick?

Fans of E. L. James’ erotic novel have been throwing around names of different Hollywood hotties around while countless others express hopes that they would cast a relatively unknown actress to bring Christian Grey‘s girl toy to life.

As much as I’d like a fresh face, I think Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror) or Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) would be a good choice because they both look what I imagined Ana to be. But, as of now, the frontrunner is rumored to be…Emma Watson.

Yes, Hermione Granger in BDSM sexual acrobatics!

According to online reports, the former Harry Potter star is in talks to play the role. However, producer Dana Brunetti immediately took to Twitter to deny any casting whatsoever.

“All of the rumors on #FiftyShades are just that – rumors. No one has been cast in any role,” Brunetti wrote. “We have to get a writer and director first.”

An actor to play Christian Grey is still being sought, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up that Alexander Skarsgard will land the coveted role.

Which rumored girl would you like as your Anastasia Steele? Nina Dobrev, Amanda Seyfried, (seems like an okay option, but isn’t she a bit too old?) Lily Collins, Kristen Stewart, Shailene Woodley, or Emma Watson?
