Ever since it was announced that there was going to be a big screen adaptation of the EL James novel Fifty Shades of Grey, there have been plenty of rumours going around. Most of the rumours have been about who will be cast in the lead roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
Now the rumours are beginning to flow about who will direct the movie, with one director in particular, doing all that he can to get his name in the frame. Gus Van Sant is best known for directing the Oscar winning movie Good Will Hunting and he seems very keen on directing the Fifty Shades of Grey film.
Apparently Gus has decided not to wait to be asked by Universal Pictures and Focus Features to do a test reel and has ust gone ahead and done one. The Wrap claim that Gus Van Sant has filmed a sex scene with Alex Pettyfer to prove that he is the right man to direct the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
No name has official been mentioned but if Gus Van Sant is given the job of directing Fifty Shades of Grey, then we could well see Alex Pettyfer in the role of Christian Grey. Watch this space!
