Hackers Reveal Emma Watson "Maybe" Attached To Star In 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

Emma Watson Fifty Shades Of Grey

While Anonymous is generally known for their more politically motivated actions, this is probably one of the few times they will ever be linked to big screen movie adaptation of your Mom's favorite book of erotica. Launching an action that was apparently driven as a response to Germany's shutdown of the filesharing network, hackers made their way into the servers of production company Constantin Film, and nabbed a bunch of documents. Among them was paperwork suggesting Emma Watson might be cast in "Fifty Shades Of Grey."

For those who have been following every burp and fart around the brewing movie, they'll know that the actress has rumored since the earliest days, though last summer she played down the chatter. “I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing. There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call. It was the same way with 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo– I never even saw a script!” she said. (Yes, she was one of the names tossed around during David Fincher's lengthy hunt for his Lisbeth Salander).

However, the actual leaked paperwork says "Maybe Emma Waston" and was dated last fall, which jibes with Constatin's statements that the stuff stolen from them "were out of date and widely accessible to many Constantin employees." Still, it's enough to stoke the pervy fires of many who want to know who's going to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. As for that, we've already made our suggestions right here. But with a 2014 release reportedly being eyed, legit info might be coming soon. [THR]

    it's weird that an actress like her,who's been typecasted in a series film for such a long time, is still doing a movie like that.

    One can only hope that Emma Watson wouldn't want to waste her time on crap like that. In fact, I don't know why anyone would want to make a film out of that book in general.

    Also keep in mind that dozens of workers had access to this file, if it WAS legit, don't you think they would limit who had access to it? And to top it off, Constatin is just a movie distributer, just like A24 is for Bling Ring. Did A24 know the casting details before Bling Ring even started filming? Then how would they know this?

    If a distributor comes on early to a film, at pre-sale stage or any time before production, they would of course know who is in the film. For films of budget, it's an essential element. That said, A24 acquired Bling Ring either off of promo reel or at fine cut stage.
