took the world by storm last summer, rumours have swirled about the inevitable film adaptation of the three novels - the Fifty Shades of Grey movie
. And the most fevered speculation? Which Hollywood stars will land the coveted lead roles in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie
And now author EL James has hinted that the casting for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie
may surprise Fifty Shades of Grey
Speaking at Vanity Fair
