If you ever wondered what it was like to live in the age of Lady Chatterley's Lover, the widespread impact of Fifty Shades of Grey might give you an idea (minus the literary canonization). The smutty series has grown from Twilight fan fiction to best seller worth millions to sexual liberator — and now an upcoming film (of course). So, who will be the lucky stars to play the dominator and the dominated in this surefire blockbuster controversy? There's no shortage of rumors, but the latest (and weirdest, in our opinion) has Emma Watson pegged as Anastasia Steele.
Yeah, you read right. Sweet, little Hermione's next feature on the big screen could involve dungeons, handcuffs, and a whole lotta leather. If this is true, Ms. Watson is certainly very committed to breaking out of her good-girl image. (Just Jared Jr)
So, what do you think: Would this unlikely casting scar you forever, or are you ready to see Emma break free from the chains of Hermione (only to enter a different set)?
