A new report claims that the British beauty may play Anastasia Steele in the film. Joe Wright is in the running to direct the film and he loves having Keira star as his leading lady. Do you think she’s the right choice?

Keira Knightley may be going to the Red Room of pain. The actress is reportedly, possibly, going to be the star of the screen adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Keira Knightley To Play Anastasia Steele?

Here’s the thing, Joe has a great relationship with Focus and Universal which is the film company that is slated to make the film. This British director has made four films with them: Anna KareninaHannaAtonementand Pride & Prejudice. Guess who has starred in three of those movies? Keira!

Plus, if you’ve read the books, you know that Anastasia is supposed to be a skinny, brunette. But Anastasia is supposed to be a college student and Keira is 28-years-old.

Who Will Play Christian Grey?

We told you that is reporting that Gus Van Sant had Alex Pettyfer play Christian Grey in a sex scene he shot. It was just a test scene but all fingers are pointing to him possibly playing the dominating billionaire in the film.

We already know he looks amazing with his shirt off because he starred in Magic Mike and played a male stripper!

Do you think Keira would look good getting in the sheets with Alex?
