Fifty Shades Movie Cast: New Rumor Points To Robert Pattinson

Fifty Shades Of Grey author tops Forbes list with $95 million

The Fifty Shades Of Grey movie has a director, it has a release date, but it still doesn’t have a cast. The latest rumor points to Robert Pattinson in the lead role but the information is flimsy at best.

Pattinson was recently spotted out at a birthday party. The Twilight star threw a party for Nicholas Jarecki at his home in Los Angeles and apparently invited author E. L. James.

Pattinson has a pretty busy schedule coming up (he has five movies slated for the next two years) and he can’t work with everyone that attends one of his parties. On the other hand, E! Online notes that Fifty Shades Of Grey started out as Twilight fan fiction so Pattinson would be a pretty perfect fit.

As of now, however, the Fifty Shades movie cast is still a mystery.

Focus Features announced today that the new movie will hit theaters in August of 2014 so they’re going to have to start production sometime soon. Sam Taylor-Johnson has been tipped to direct and Kelly Marcel has adapted the novel into a screenplay.

Do you think Robert Pattinson will play Christian Grey in the new movie?

With a release date already set, a director already hired, and a screenplay already written one has to wonder what’s holding up the casting decisions. One MAJOR problem for Focus Features could be that no one wants to soil their good name by joining the Fifty Shades movie cast.

Emma Watson harshly shot down rumors earlier this year that she would be in the movie.

Armie Hammer, Chris Evans, Mila Kunis, Ryan Gosling, Jake Gyllenhaal, Justin Bieber, Matt Bomer, Chris Pine, and Ian Solmerhalder have all been attached to the Fifty Shades movie cast through rumors so far. Of course, none of them have actually signed in to play the part.

Do you think Focus Features is having a hard time finding someone to take a risk on Fifty Shades Of Grey? Do you think the movie will find an A-list cast? Or is this movie destined to be the summer flop of 2014?

    NOT likely – I'm sure Rob has had enough of playing the part of Edward Cullen/Christian Grey for all you older desperate housewives all these years.
    “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!
    You TwiLadies need to start giving these two kids the benefit of the doubt. After all this time being your virtual fantasy playmates, it's the LEAST you could do! It doesn't matter if Robert has a new girlfriend or not – Kristen will no doubt have a new guy soon, too. Rob knows he's 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 such a Twilight-inspired phenomenon!

    If He Plays Christian then I have NO interest in seeing it… he does absolutely NOTHING for me. I mean, yeah he was good in the teeniebopper Twilight stuff… but.. nah.. nope… not for Christian.

    If you see BelAmi or Remember Me, or Cosmopolis, you can see that he would be able to pull it off. I just don't want him to. I don't think he want to either.

    The real side of those who live their lives in “Shades of Grey” can be found in “Killers, ‘Cuffs & Kisses” , on Amazon books. It is a tad edgy. As they say, “Ouch is not a ”safe” word!

    You've got a habbit of cutting peoples names off their manips EdwardMoon Cullen. Your last 2 profile pics belong to Kerry Delaney, Why have you cut her name off? Manips take a long time to do, you have no right to just remove their name like that. Perhaps you should try and do your own, see how long they do take! Even if youde left her name on there you wouldn't of seen it on your profile pic. I have one of hers, can you really notice her name, NO you cant! Shame on you!
