Fifty Shades of Grey: Sam Taylor-Johnson to Direct! Felicity Jones to Star?

by at . Comments

Back when Fifty Shades of Grey was the only thing anybody ever talked about, Universal scooped up the film rights and was working on fast-tracking the erotic romance novel into a big-screen adaptation.

Well, it's been about a year since that whole process started, and we still don't have much. Until today, that is, as Sam Taylor-Johnson has signed on to direct!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Taylor-Johnson is best known for directing Nowhere Boy, which starred now-husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass 2).

With a lot of big directors being discussed, including Gus Van Sant and Joe Wright, it comes as a bit of a surprise that a less experienced director was chosen.

Along with the director news, rumors are also swirling that Felicity Jones is in the running to play Anastasia. Oddly enough, Aaron Taylor-Johnson's name has been talked about previously for the role of Christian.

With the director in place, who should play Christian and Anastasia?
