As fans continue to await more confirmed news this week on the hotly anticipated “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, Yahoo UK reported this Friday, Jan. 11, that film producer Dana Brunetti caused a shockwave of interest on Twitter this week after he recently tweeted a mysterious message that could hint that the first “official” talks of casting may not be too far away, and that Henry Cavill may be a top contender.
Although screenwriter Kelly Marcel noted in her interview earlier in the week that casting Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie is still a distant notion, Dana Brunetti took to Twitter this Thursday to write that he would be “meeting with ‘agents’ at CAA,” including in his tweet a photo of men in dark suits.
While this tweet may seem innocuous at first, many “50 Shades” fans who took a closer look would find that the Creative Artists Agency has a top client right now: none other than Henry Cavill of “Man of Steel,” who was recently voted the 2013 Breakout Star, according to Fandango.
Now while the talented Henry Cavill has certainly been a recurring fan favorite alongside Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder in the casting polls, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Cavill is in talks for Christian Grey or the film itself. However, it does provide an interesting link between the “Man of Steel’s” agents and his potential reps that the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie producer is going to meet.
Creative Artists Agency, as well as Henry Cavill’s publicists have recently been asked for comment regarding the meeting rumors, Yahoo reports, so we fellow fans may receive some confirmed news soon whether or not Brunetti’s upcoming meeting with Henry’s reps have anything to do with the already-in-motion, yet undecided NC-17 “50 Shades” film adaptation.
Henry Cavill fans are already in an excited uproar on Twitter over the casting speculation. Can you see the “Man of Steel” as your Christian Grey?
