Ryan Gosling linked to Fifty Shades of Grey

Ryan Gosling is the latest actor tipped to take part in a big screen adaption of the bestselling Fifty Shades of Grey novels. Already, Universal Studios and Focus Features have gained rights to transfer the first book in the series to film. The raunchy series tells the story of innocent student Anastasia Steele, who falls for the handsome, rich Christian Grey. Fascinated and unable to resist her urges she becomes his lover, but soon finds out his dark secret sexual practices. “The role of the sadomasochistic billionaire seems to be man-of-the-moment Ryan Gosling’s to turn down. But the Drive star may take some persuading,” British newspaper The Sun writes. “Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder is another strong contender. He would certainly take the role and seems the most likely candidate. An outside bet is Brit star Henry Cavill, who will become a household name as the new Superman in a reboot of the franchise out next year.” Speculation as to who will portray Anastasia has also been a hot topic, with Kristen Stewart, Nina Dobrev, Selena Gomez and Lily Collins all linked to the coveted role. Emma Roberts and Lucy Hale have also expressed interest in playing the part. ~Graeme Mollison

    This is probably the next Magic Mike must-see for those sexually repressed ladies, or those ladies on the opposite end of the spectrum!
