50 Shades of Grey film: Shailene Woodley EL James pick for Ana Steele?

By
Shailene Woodley is reportedly a favoured choice of Fifty Shades of Grey author EL James for the forthcoming movie adaptation.

Woodley, who played George Clooney's daughter in Oscar-nominated drama The Descendants, has allegedly "caught the eye" of James. Her best-selling erotic novel will be turned into a feature film by The Social Network producers Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca.

The 20-year-old actress was named as a potential Anastasia Steele in a recent Hollywood Reporter profile on up-and-coming Hollywood stars.

"The next big stars are the actress who plays Anastasia Steele and the actor who plays Christian Grey," said Twilight producer Marty Bowen. "They will certainly have an invitation to the A-list table."

Digital Spy readers recently voted for Ian Somerhalder and Emilia Clarke as their top choices to play sadistic billionaire Christian and innocent college graduate Ana.

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is currently targeting screenwriters, with Dan Fogelman, Veena Sud, Karen Croner and Kelly Marcel all named as contenders.
