For months now, the world has patiently waited for the big casting announcements from the highly anticipated film 50 Shades of Grey, and it’s possible that we’re finally one step closer to the big reveal.
According to a new report, Oscar-nominated director Gus Van Sant shot a sex scene starring Alex Pettyfer as the movie’s lead male character Christian Grey in a bid to direct the film. For now, Alex and Gus both have no official attachment to the actual film, but at least progress is being made somewhere!
After playing a stripper in Magic Mike, it’s no secret that Alex isn’t afraid to get down, dirty and sexy for a movie role, so if he is eventually cast as Christian Grey, it wouldn’t be all that shocking. There’s no word yet on which leading lady starred alongside Alex as Anastasia Steele in the tape, though… so keep speculating!
