    I mean, she’s not the greatest actress in the world, but I would like to think she has more sense that. They will end up giving it to some cheap C-list actress who actually thinks these crappy books are actually good.

    Ugh no! No to that casting because it’ll taint her. I can’t believe they are even turning this into a movie in the first place. Do not want.

    Nope. Her agent has confirmed to gossipcop there is no truth to the casting rumour, thankfully. Emma is better than this.

    lmao, this girl is going to be in Darren Aronofsky’s next film. You really think she would stoop that low? It might be a favourite with the common housewife, but it’s a laughing stock everywhere else. Kind of like Twilight, but replace ‘common housewife’ with ‘crazy teenagers and wannabe MILFs’.

    And Ryan Gosling? I doubt he’s even heard of the books.

    Thankfully her representatives have already denied that there is any truth to this.

    Mindy Says:

    Dana Brunetti, who is one of the producers on the film, stated on his twitter account yesterday that NO ONE is being considered for any part at this time. His primary job RIGHT NOW is to find a screenwriter and a director for the film. First and foremost, THOSE are the only things on his mind at this moment in time when it comes to this property. So just stop all this speculation. All anyone is doing by putting names out there is pissing the man off and making him CROSS NAMES OFF HIS LIST.

    Dumb book (Twilight fanfiction). Dumb movie idea. Emma is too good for that crap.

    @Mindy: In that case, I want to put more names out so I can piss him off. I already hate him for making this film!

    I have not read the book because from what I have heard it is nothing more than a Harliquin (sorry for spelling) novel gone extreme x x x-rated. Not sure if this is true and if it is, how are they gonna make a main stream movie out of basically p@rn?? If this is the case then you’ll have Sillicon Valley trying to move their distasteful crap into main stream movies. Don’t get it….

    This is false, NO actor or actress has talked to anyone about this movie

    Tam Says:

    NOO !
    Every single actor that has been suggested for this role is a disappointment. It should be people UNKNOWN to the general public ! New stars, would make the movie way more interesting.

    Already the movie will not be as good as the book, what movie ever is but PLEASE . This would just make it horrible

    @Delphic: Don’t think some of you have read these books. The sex, to me, is typical of most romance books, but there is a story behind the sex. Some of us really liked the books and DO NOT think this will be done with C rate actors. If it is, it will be a great opportunity for them. The big criticism comes from people who freak when they hear the word “S E X.” You can read about sex anywhere if you want to. Get off your a** and read the books and then say what you think. Some thought the word “damn” would corrupt the people who read Gone With the Wind but it didn’t. PLEASE, get the pucker out of your butts – sex does happen.

    She doesn’t look like Anastasia Steele. I know they can dye her hair and make her wear blue contacts, but it’s just not the same. The look is everything. It portrays the character’s innocence and Emma is too famous for the role.
