Jenner, 18, allegedly caught the eye of Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson, who initially wanted the reality TV star and model to make an appearance in the first film. Though that plan apparently fell through, Taylor-Johnson and Universal are hoping to get Jenner onboard for the sequel.
“[Sam] is fascinated by [Kendall] and expressed interest in her appearing in the first film but it didn’t happen,” an insider told Grazia magazine. “Universal is also keen for Kendall to be involved in the sequel. They put in a call to her people and arranged a meeting last month, which went really well.”
The insider added, “It wouldn’t be a major role but would certainly be a foot in the door of Hollywood. Apparently, she’ll only sign on once Sam Taylor-Johnson is confirmed as the director.”
As of late, Jenner has been throwing herself into her fashion career after making her runway debut for Marc Jacobs during the last New York Fashion Week back in February. It’s unknown who she’ll be walking for at New York Fashion Week this month.
Fifty Shades of Grey, adapted from E.L. James’ erotic novel of the same name, is slated to premiere Valentine’s Day weekend 2015. It stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in the leading roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
