It's that time again, more news on the "50 Shades of Grey" movie cast. This time around, it's Scarlett Johansson and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in line for the Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey roles in the upcoming film.
Earlier this week, Sheridan Smith posted a hilarious April Fools' tweet that claimed she had been confirmed for "50 Shades" alongside "Les Miserables" star Eddie Redmayne. To fan's dismay it was simply a prank. Once the frustration blew over, fans rejoiced that Sheridan Smith would not be our Anastasia. That just wouldn't work.
So now our sights turn to Johansson and Gordon-Levitt. The two would certainly look good up on the big screen, and both are such talented actors that there's no doubt they'd make for a beautiful rendition of the 'Mommy Porn' based flick. But alas, it's yet another cruel April Fools' day joke.
Here's the original post from Fansshare:
"The two main characters that everybody cares about are Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, with a number of top Hollywood stars being linked to the roles. While many fans were hoping for an actress who looks just like Anastasia Steele, it seems that a different approach has been made. Anastasia Steele is described as a "pale, brown-haired, young woman with blue eyes too big for her face. She is pretty but not overly pretty, and shown to be rather insecure about being slim, pale, and scruffy." So it is surprising to learn that Scarlett Johansson has been cast as Anastasia Steele for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie."
"In a move that is likely to shock a lot of people and also disappoint a large number of fans, 'Inception' actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been cast in the role of Christian Grey for the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie. There have been a number of top Hollywood names linked to the role but Joseph has come out on top."
"April Fool! It's our favorite time of the year! Obviously, what you just read is complete fiction, so don't get carried away! But why not try and fool someone else and get them all crazy like this did you? And again... thanks for being a fool : )."
Very funny Fansshare. I hope you had a good, hearty laugh. We'll all just continue to suffer as you sit high and mighty. Punks.
