Emma Watson a “Frontrunner” for “Fifty Shades of Grey” Movie?

From Harry Potter to Hubba Hubba!

Word on the Curb has it that once straight-and-narrow child star Emma Watson is the “frontrunner” to play Anastasia “Ana” Steele in the hotly-awaited Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Tattling tipsters tell The New York Daily News that the 22-year-old is “in talks” with producers about taking on the female lead in a saucy flick based on EL James’ hit novel about a billionaire businessman who woos a college student into his kinky world of BDSM sex.

Twilight’s Kristen Stewart has also been rumored to be in the running for the Anastasia role. That could be suitable given her recent swipe with sex scandals. (Hint…Hint) Scarlett Johansson is also a favorite.

Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti will be producing the project based on The New York Times Bestseller. They haven’t spoken on the Emma casting rumor specifically, but Brunetti sent out a recent tweet that aimed to keep the chatter in check.

“All of the rumors on #FiftyShades are just that — rumors. No one has been cast in any role. We have to get a writer and director first.”

Between Emma, Kristen and Scarlett, who’s your pick to take on Anastasia?
