Will Alex Pettyfer Team With Gus Van Sant For “50 Shades Of Grey” Film?

BeastlyOK, we haven’t actually read the best-selling mommy porn 50 Shades of Grey either, but we’re starting to reconsider after hearing that out director Gus Van Sant is in such hot pursuit of the project that he’s shot a sexy screen test with Magic Mike‘s Alex Pettyfer.

TheWrap reports the man who has helmed such acclaimed queer-themed films as Mala Nocha and Milk is indeed hoping to land the coveted directing spot for the film adaptation of EL James steamy novel. Actually, Van Sant wants it so badly that he’s already shot an erotic scene with Pettyfer.

For those familiar with this fine piece of literature, the scene is said to be the one in which ingénue Anastasia Steele loses her virginity to decadent billionaire Christian Grey. There’s no word on which actress played opposite Pettyfer, but we’re jealous of her just the same. TheWrap confirms that although Van Sant personally selected Pettyfer to play Grey in his test, this doesn’t mean he’ll snag the plum role.

Currently planning to star in a remake of Endless Love, the photogenic 23-year-old actor was a big hit at the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles over the weekend when he auctioned off a kiss for charity and later engaged in a full lip-lock with Betty White. We’re jealous of her, too.

      Talented director? Sure. But the amount of boners Gus Van Sant has inspired in me can be counted on zero hands.

      No Bomer, I don’t want to see him doing the straight sex. Kills the fantasy. Maybe the gay porn version 50 Shades of Gay.

      Take Petyfer, he’s got the personality of a door stop, straight women will eat him up.

      This film will no doubt be a hit among women aged 45-65.

      Alex P is an arrogant prick! That being said, he is perfect for the film.
