Alex Pettyfer Stars In Gus Van Sant's '50 Shades Of Grey' Sample Scene
Alex Pettyfer, the British star of Magic Mike, recently played Christian Grey in a sex scene directed by Gus Van Sant for the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, reported The Warp.
Pettyfer has not been cast as the lead in the highly-anticipated film, and Van Sant has not been named the director. The filmmaker shot the scene and recruited Pettyfer to create a sample to show to producers in an unsolicited bid to helm the Universal/Focus Features project. The scene depicts Anastasia Steele losing her virginity to the dominant Grey. The actress in the scene has yet to be identified.
As of yet, no official casting decisions have been revealed. Until they are, it can be expected that fans of the "mommy porn" trilogy will continue to suggest actors and actresses to fill the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Top contenders to play the leading man include Ian Somerhalder, Chris Pine and Alexander Skarsgard. Meanwhile, Lucy Hale, Ashley Greene, Nina Dobrev and Alexis Bledel have all been suggested to fill the role of Ana.
E.L James wrote the best selling fiction series. Kelly Marcel has been named as the screenwriter to transform the series' first novel into a script for the feature film.
