Apparently, director Gus Van Sant filmed a scene of Ana losing her virginity to Christian Grey (utilizing Alex Pettyfer as Christian) in his attempt to bid for the director of the film.
I don't know who the hell is in the running, but I think Sant would be a good choice, and would handle the film with both care and respect, and make it into something awesome.
Other directors I wouldn't mind seeing at the helm of this film in the hopes of vastly improving the story (or rather, the way it's told):
Speaking of McQueen...please let this film star Michael Fassbender. Omg...
I've thought about this, and it would be a horrible misstep if they don't cast this brilliant actor and beautiful and sexy man.
As for the leading lady...I'm hearing a lot of names being thrown around, but it's making me yawn. Here's my pic:
Yep--Vanessa Lee Chester. Blame it on Deception or Scandal if you want, or say it's cause I'm black, but hey, that's what I want to see. Let's face it folks--interracial on TV (and soon film, hopefully) is what's up.
