"Fifty Shades of Grey" casting talk continues despite fans' frustration over lack of real news. This week the rumors revolve around Lily Collins and a newly released trailer for the film "Stuck in Love." On March 11 Latinos Post called the display "provocative" and declared that "she fits the innocent bad girl that everyone sees in Anastasia." Along with Collins, Emma Watson has reportedly been spotted in some hacked files, showing she is attached to the role of Ana Steele. The Hollywood Reporter revealed the incident last week yet it has not been confirmed by any additional sources.
Lily Collins, 23, is known as a Disney darling and the daughter of famed musician Phil Collins but she is now ditching the little girl persona for one a little racier. The "Stuck in Love" trailer shows Collins can play both sweet and sexy, even appearing in a black lace bra. The role of Samantha in the upcoming film is described as a "headstrong sex-fein (and aspiring writer)." Collins is taking the plunge into more adult roles and a part in "Fifty Shades of Grey" could solidify that image. "The young actress has the right look, the right age, the right attitude and now she has the '50 Shades' fan buzz" according to Latinos Post. Unfortunately for excited Lily Collins fans, the actress appears to be quite busy with two films currently in pre-production.
The Lily Collins rumors are majorly speculative while this one may be exactly what fans are looking for. Last week there was a reported document leak which reveals that Emma Watson is already attached to "Fifty Shades of Grey. The Hollywood Reporter broke the story which claims that an "online hacker collective Anonymous has successfully hacked into the internal server of German studio Constantin Film, stealing internal documents and email addresses." Most of the hacked materials were nothing new, the most shocking document stated that Emma Watson was "attached to star in Focus Features' upcoming 50 Shades of Grey adaptation." Another website has confirmed the hack but has not specified if "Fifty Shades of Grey" was mentioned.
Emma Watson, 22, has long been a fan favorite and many can see her as the perfect Ana Steele. The "Harry Potter" actress has not ruled out the possibility of taking the role, telling Ryan Seacrest last year "she'd be far more interested in playing Anastasia in 50 Shades of Grey if Ryan Gosling plays Christian." This comment brings up an important connection. If the leaked document shows Emma Watson is cast as Ana Steele, does that mean Ryan Gosling may end up as Christian Grey? The question will remain unanswered until Universal Pictures makes an official casting announcement which is anticipated to happen soon.
