Dailymail reports that Scarlett is among three other established actresses considered for the female protagonist Anastasia Steele in the movie adaption of Fifty Shades of Greay. This is still very unofficial as the screenplay writer just took the job yesterday and mentioned Scarlett to be perfect for the role.
It is the triple X rated – erotic bestseller that has taken the world by storm.
And since film rights were recently obtained by Universal Pictures, there have been several rumours swirling about who will take on the cinematic version of E.L James racy novel Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Now Scarlett Johansson is the latest star to be named as a possibility to play the book’s female protagonist Anastasia Steele.
American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis suggested that the 27-year-old actress is the perfect pick to portray the young college graduate, who is introduced to the world of BDSM by manipulative billionaire Christian Grey.
In the novel, Grey has a penchant for bondage and soon envelops Ana in a world of kinky sex, S&M and triple X-rated bedroom ‘contract’ games that make for strictly post-watershed reading only.
