Kunis has been heavily linked with the film, but,during a press conference for her new movie, Oz The Great And The Powerful, when she was asked about the chances of her appearing in the adaptation, the actress responded scornfully.
“Gosh, this Fifty Shades Of Grey thing is just not gonna leave is it,” stated Kunis. “No, you will not see in Fifty Shades Of Grey. I’m so sorry.”
Previously, the That ’70s Show star revealed that she was “not disinterested” in the part of Anastasia Steele after it became apparent that Kunis was the front-runner to star as Steele.
However, Kunis’ Oz co-star has declared his interest in the role, joking at the same PR event, “If I had one spell I’d make you do 50 Shades Of Grey. But maybe this means I can be in it?”
Kunis then replied, “It’s all Zach Braff’s! You’ll be fantastic in it!”
Fifty Shades Of Grey is a trio of novels that follows the sexual relationship between Steele, a college graduate, and the businessman, Christian Grey. Sixty-five million editions of these books have been sold across the world.
In March 2012, Universal Pictures and Focus Features purchased the screen rights to the series.
Screenwriter, Kelly Marcel, who scribed the television series Terra Nova, was hired to adapt E.L. James’ novel back in October, but there has been no development on the production of the film since.
In fact, James recently revealed that the production was “still a long way from casting,” whilst Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogerlson has stated that he hopes the film could be released as summer 2014.
The casting for the film has been debated for several months, and a host of infamous actresses and actors have been linked to the two main characters. Emma Watson, Alexis Bledel, and Krysten Ritter have each been rumored for Steele, whilst Ryan Gosling, Henry Cavill, and Channing Tatum are wanted for Grey.
