Some of you Heatworld citizens may have been made aware of the book that has everyone blushing (and that includes our mum) Fifty Shades of Grey. Fans of the trilogy might be pleased to hear that the bestselling books are being made into a film, and odds on who might play billionaire Christian Grey are stacked in favour of the gorgeous Ryan Gosling, mmm.
The books, which have been dubbed "mummy porn" have become a hit after their release in 2011 and they follow a young college graduate named Anastasia Steele and her relationship with Christian. Christian introduces Ana to a world of bondage and very kinky sex, so you can imagine the kind of raunchy, taboo-breaking stuff we're talking about here. It's the kind of thing we wouldn't mind seeing Ryan get his teeth into.
Ryan is the even money favourite to get the role, while Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder comes in a close second with odds of 6/4. Some other very handsome snaps who are favourite to snag the part include Bradley Cooper and Alex Pettyfer.
To favourite to play the innocent Ana is The Avengers star Scarlett Johanson. Other actresses who might be asked to get involved include Amanda Seyfried, Kristen Stewart and Emma Stone.
Bret Easton Ellis, author of American Psycho, has put himself forward to write the screenplay and his personal opinion is that filmmaker David Cronenberg could direct the flick, with either Scarlett or Kristen playing Anastacia.
However, rumours have also circulated that after reading the books, Angelina Jolie wants to get involved and direct the film herself.
Have any of you Heatworld citizens read the book? If you're a big fan, who do you think should play the role of Christian and Anastasia?
