Mila Kunis, Tom Hardy frontrunners for '50 Shades of Grey'

Recently named “the sexiest woman alive,” the breathtaking Mila Kunis is, according to reports published yesterday, October 10, 2012, is the frontrunner for the highly anticipated movie adaptation of “50 Shades of Grey.” Furthermore, as if the news that this stunning starlet’s could be joining the film wasn’t enough, the British hunk Tom Hardy is also in talks to star in the film.

Kunis starred in the almost equally erotic and sexual film, 2010 Oscar-winning “The Black Swan,” though she will need to reign in her raunchy side to play the virginal Anastasia Steele. Despite Kunis’s sexually charged acting past, she has certainly proven herself as a talented thespian with the skills to play a somewhat different role.

Hardy, on the other hand, is used to playing dominating figures like the powerful and intimidating Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises,” or the famous longtime British prison resident Charles Bronson of “Bronson.” His physically imposing figure and dominant will come in handy in the fantasies of the handsome billionaire Christian Grey, while his romantic charm, which is clearly on display in the 2012 romantic comedy, “This Means War,” will help him portray the character’s softer side.

Celebuzz reported that British writer Kelly Marcel, who also co-created the popular television series, “Terranova,” will be penning the screenplay for the film. Marcel is reportedly a huge fan of Hardy’s and even founded a company with the actor.

Other contenders for the roles include Lucy Hale, Emma Watson and Kristen Stewart for Anastasia and Ryan Gosling, Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer have been mentioned for Christian. Although any of these choices are sure to be great, Mila Kunis, Tom Hardy, and Ryan Gosling stand out as the best casting decisions, as they are among the most attractive actors in Hollywood at the moment and they will add tremendous sex appeal to this racy film.
