Just when we thought there probably wasn't a decent chance of her getting cast in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, a new rumor claims Kristen Stewart may play Anastasia Steele after all.
(Go ahead and scream "Nooooo!" as loud as you can and then we'll continue.)
Supposedly Twilight director Bill Condon's partner, Jack Morrissey, has been chatting with Fifty Shades screenplay writer, Kelly Marcel, on Twitter. And now there's speculation that Bill may wind up producing the flick, and that's where KStew nabbing Ana's role comes into play.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Bill loves Kristen, and there's a chance he won't be willing to consider casting any other actress for the part.

Hmm. Yeah, I'd say that's definitely a good possibility, if Condon really does wind up being the producer for Fifty Shades. Considering how successful Kristen was in the Twilight films, maybe she's the perfect person to take on another epic role, like Anastasia Steele, right?
OMG. Ok, so before I read Fifty Shades of Grey, all I really knew about it was that it was loosely based on Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's characters in Twilight. And for that reason alone, I figured the two of them should probably be cast in the film as Christian and Ana.
But I changed my mind shortly after finishing the first book -- because I just can't picture Bella and Edward going at it like that. I'd never be able to accept them in their new roles, because every time they're on-screen together from here on out, they'll always be Edward and Bella. Period.
But forget about Rob for a second -- ever since the whole Rupert Sanders cheating scandal, Kristen's really kind of lost her luster. I know everyone makes mistakes, but I just don't think fans will be as excited about seeing the Fifty Shades movie if they know they'll have to suffer through watching Kristen bite her lip for two hours or more.
I know I don't wanna do it.
How about you? Do you think Kristen should be cast as Ana?
