Robert Pattinson Parties With ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Author, Set To Play Christian Grey

Robert Pattinson Fifty Shades Of Grey

Robert Pattinson has sparked speculation that he is set to take the lead role in the upcoming adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey, after partying with the novel’s writer, E.L. James.

Pattinson threw the film director, Nicholas Jarecki, a birthday party at his Los Feliz home, which James attended, and apparently signals that he is set to star as Christian Grey.

Other celebrities at the event included, Heather Graham, Moby, Michelle Rodriguez, and Ellen Page, with Graham even finding time to Tweet a picture of herself at the soiree. Her message read, “A fun party looking at the super moon with Moby @thelittleidiot and EL James @E_L_James.”

Rumors surrounding the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie continue to permeate after it was confirmed that Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directed Nowhere Boy, would helm the project.

Michael De Luca, one of the film’s producers alongside Dana Brunetti, confirmed that she had beaten out the likes of Joe Wright and Gus Van Sant to the position.

De Luca released a statement that read, “Sam’s unique ability to gracefully showcase complex relationships dealing with love, emotion, and sexual chemistry make her the ideal director to bring Christian and Anastasia’s relationship to life.”

He then added, “E.L. James’ characters and vivid storytelling require a director who is willing to take risks and push the envelope where needed and Sam is a natural fit.”

Taylor-Johnson responded by stating, “For the legions of fans, I want to say that I will honor the power of Erika’s book and the characters of Christian and Anastasia. They are under my skin too.”

The likes of Kristen Stewart and Mila Kunis have been linked with the role of Anastasia, whilst Ian Somerhalder, Armie Hammer, and Channing Tatum have been linked with Christian Grey, but it would now appear that Pattinson is in pole position to take the role.

Would Robert Pattinson be a good Christian Grey in Fifty Shades Of Grey?

  1. A Different Twilight

    Rob is pretty much just a piece of meat and he always has been for older Twilight Fans, especially. He's been their personal 'Christian Grey' LONG before the book 50 Shades of Grey was written!
    “Stephenie Meyer and Her ARMY of Desperate Housewives: The Twilight Saga Exposed” – Book on the professional negligence of Stephenie Meyer, her book publishers and movie producers that CAUSED all the ridiculous over-obsessions of OLDER Twilight Fan's – resulting in all these extreme and extended 'robsten' PR assaults – read all about it!

    Sorry, Ladies – I rarely come back to respond in here. If you have an ignorant yet semi-brilliant response to this message – stop being such a coward and visit the blog to take this argument HEAD ON with me. I've HAD IT with your judgemental, hateful sh*t. And since I happen to KNOW WHY so many of you are so damn mean STILL – the book!
    I'll also be sending an official complaint off to a few pertinent Attorney Generals, soon. GOSH, if you would rather these things NOT happen – come sign the petitions for Hollywood to reform it's own Industry of Celebrity Mistreatment. It's the LEAST you could do for all the pain and hurt that SO MANY of you have caused your fellow Twilight Sisters – not to mention, Kristen & Robert!

    Ian Somerhalder is PERFECT for the role! This better be a rumor because I read last week that even though she based the characters on Edward & Bella, that there was no way that he would be cast as Christian. She said it would be "wierd"

  3. Rachel Springstead

    Seriously??? Ughh…He is no Christian Grey. I sure hope this isn't true.

  4. Rachel Springstead

    I agree. Hopefully, enough people will disagree and they won't lean in that direction. He does not fit at all. I like Ian somerhalder, but like Matt Bromer more for the part. They place Pattinson in this part and it will ruin the entire movie…

  5. Rachel Springstead

    I think this just ruined my day! :( just finished reading the series AGAIN yesterday, so it's still all fresh.

  6. Heather Bowles Cole

    Oh – I like Matt Bromer too :) The character is very similar to the character Ian plays on Vampire Diaries, but I think Matt Bromer would be really really good too! I know – I just finished it last week & reading that made me sick to my stomach LOL

  7. Carla Bowles

    I agree Heather Ian Somerhalder looks so "Christian Grey " !! And I think Emma Watson would be great Anastasia -but I thought I read somewhere she wouldn't do it …don't about actually playing the part but she looks like my mental pic of her

    Rob Pattinson just does not fit AT ALL as Christian and I hope these rumors about him can stop. If Sam, the new Director, feels he is a contender, I hate to say it but we are in deep trouble. The 'fit' of the actors matters and Rob is so out of place in the 'look'. Focus on Ian Somerholder or Henry Cavill as Christian and you'll do great!

    Anyone who thinks Pattinson could not pull off Christian, probably hasn't seen the Haunted Airman or Little Ashes. He can definately play intense, conflicted and sexy roles as is the epitome of Christian. Edward is no Christian, but Rob could do it if he chooses to accept the roll. There are many actors who are being considered who can do the roll justice
