Could it be?!
Could our beloved Hermione Granger really be entering the Red Room of Pain?!
Not so fast…
Reports have been rapidly circulating that out of the many potential women vying for the role of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming film adaptation of kinky Twilight fanfiction 50 Shades of Grey, Emma Watson has emerged as the top contender, as producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti felt the Harry Potter actress was not only talented, but also innocent-looking enough to fit the bill!
However, the two quickly took to Twitter today to deny ANY casting whatsover!
All of the rumors on #FiftyShades are just that - rumors. No one has been cast in any role. We have to get a writer and director first.

And De Luca furthers:

We're relieved to hear that production is concerned with actually compiling a creative team FIRST before even playing with the idea of casting!
So continue to let your minds run wild with potential Christians and Anas, folks!
It's all just speculation for now!
