ANGELINA Jolie has reportedly expressed an interest in starring in a film version of Fifty Shades of Grey.
The Wanted star has allegedly been reading the book while filming her latest project Maleficent in the UK.
“Angelina kept hearing about the book while she was in the UK,” a source explained. “All the girls on set were talking about it and how it’s being made into a film. Angelina went out and bought herself a copy, thinking she’d love a part in the hot topic on everyone’s lips at the moment. She knows the film is bound to be a huge hit.”
The insider added: “Ange is dead-set on a major part. She’s up for the challenge.”
Angelina Jolie has previously been linked with directing the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey, but has denied entering any discussions on the matter. Harry Potter actress Emma Watson was recently reported to be a “frontrunner” to play the lead role in the project. –DS
