Justin Bieber as Christian Grey?!
There’s nothing like starting the morning off with a good laugh…Try this on for size: Clean-cut pop tart Justin Bieber is in talks with producers about taking on the male lead in a saucy flick inspired by Fifty Shades of Grey — EL James’ hit novel about a billionaire businessman who woos a college student into his kinky world of BDSM sex.
Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti will be producing the project based on The New York Times Bestseller. During a weekend appearance on the UK talk show Jonathan Ross, Justin rrevealed that film bosses have asked him to star in the motion picture version of the S&M novel.
“They actually want me to be in the movie!”
The role would be a far cry from the innocent image the Biebs has worked so hard to cultivate over the past five years. In the book, Christian has a kink-fulled room filled with whips, handcuffs and masks for use on submissive women.
Twilight’s Kristen Stewart has been rumored to be in the running for the Anastasia role. That could be suitable given her recent swipe with sex scandals. Scarlett Johansson is also a favorite.
