Sam Taylor-Johnson to direct Fifty Shades of Grey

Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) has been tapped to direct the adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, the erotic story of a college student who enters a risky, relationship with a young business executive. You probably don't know who this woman is but she entered more spotlight after marrying a man 23 years younger than her after he starred in her movie (aka, Aaron Taylor-Johnson from Kick-Ass). It is speculated that they have brought her in to try and give more to the story other than make it the raunchy, BDSM story that it is. Trust me, I managed to read the entire book.

Along with this news, there are more rumors swirling around the casting now that the picture has a director. The given is, of course, that Aaron Taylor-Johnson has been singled out as a contender for the role of Christian Grey but the word is he probably won't pursue the role. The other rumor is that Felicity Jones (Like Crazy) is in the running for Anastasia Steele.
