Harry Potter starlet Emma Watson is supposedly set to star as "Anastasia" or "Ana" for the film version of the chick crack book series, 50 Shades of Grey. Applaud hacker group Anonymous for their magic solving the biggest mystery to plague Hollywood in years. Their handiwork for usurping control of the internal server for Constantin Films to retrieve documents stating Watson may be Ana has ended months and months of speculation as to who will portray the racy role.
Though Watson has repeatedly denied the possibility of portraying Ana, if she did it would represent more than a major transition for the 22 year old Parisian born actress. Her role as Hermoine Granger in the Harry Potter films began in 2001 when she was just a tender 9 years old. With additional work in films like Ballet Shoes, The Tale of Despereaux, The Perks of Being A Wallflower, and the upcoming bible based film, Noah, Granger may be ready to take the reins (and cropping sticks, handcuffs, and chains) of a role like that in 50 Shades. But is Hollywood?
Despite massive popularity with the 50 Shades trilogy, author E L James has had some trouble getting a crew. In February of 2013 she offered details about the upcoming film to the NY Post's Page Six. She stated: "We don't even have a filmmaker...so we are still a long way away from casting. I have some ideas...but it may bot be who people expect."
Who cares about expectations? The film will likely be one of the hottest films of the decade! Now if only we could find out who will play the role of Christian Grey...
