Getting a confirmation about the female casting for the lead role in the upcoming movie Fifty Shades Of Grey has been more difficult than most people anticipated.
Mila Kunis, Emma Watson and Alexis Bledel have all been named as contenders, but the actresses and the studio have refrained from confirming that they've been tabbed for the role. Kunis allegedly entertained the idea for a brief moment, but then said it was highly unlikely that she would participate in the film. Bledel has remained quiet since the initial reports.
Does that mean it’s a yes for Emma Watson? An anonymous hacker in Germany has claimed that they hacked into the German movie studio Constantin Films system and discovered documents that reveal the preliminary plans for the film. The documents allegedly confirm that Watson will be playing Anastasia.
If the claims are true, the casting would be fitting for the actress who has been making her way into more risqué roles since her Harry Potter days. Watson recently stared in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and is set to be in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring in which she will play a character robbing homes of famous celebrities.
