Angelina Jolie Rumored To Helm 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Film Adaptation

This could have been an explosive combination (and still might be, if fates align).

Sultry actor-director Angelina Jolie was linked as a directorial option for Universal Studios’ big-screen adaptation of the massively successful Fifty Shades of Grey, a steamy romance novel that got its start as a piece of Twilight fan fiction. British author E. L. James’ prose struck a nerve with a worldwide audience, powering e-book sales and getting Hollywood’s attention. A feature-film adaptation is in the works.

But who will direct? In a Deadline article, Jolie’s name was floated out there as being interested in the gig. She just delivered her directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey, and could be an intriguing pick to helm the hot and heavy subject matter in Grey. At the very least, her involvement would be a tremendous above-the-title boost for a project that probably doesn’t need help generating awareness.

Alas, Jolie’s reps quickly issued a statement saying that the actress, who’s currently filming Maleficent for Walt Disney, wasn’t interested at this time. But the door didn't slam shut. In response, Universal said (via Deadline) that "if [Jolie] was interested, that the studio would be also. They loved her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey."

So Jolie’s out … unless she wants in. Interesting. Let’s hear it, Grey fans. Would you like to see Jolie directing your big-screen adaptation? Is she wrong for the material? Or will she bring a perfect touch? We’d love to hear your opinions. Share them below.
