’50 Shades of Grey’ Casting: Author E L James Tweets ‘We Are So Far Away’ From Choosing Leads

50 Shades of Grey fans were elated at the news of The Social Network producers Dana Brunetti and Michael DeLuca being on board for the film adaptation, but the book’s author E L James is raining on that parade just a little bit.

Though the production news broke Monday, the British author tweeted previously on July 6: “We are so far away from casting the Fifty films … no-one ruled is out… no one is ruled in. Just so you know.”

The tweet’s timing was interesting, because there were reports saying that she didn’t want Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to play the film’s leads.

Many thought choosing producers meant they were one step closer to find the prefect Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

Celebuzz has done some dream casting — including who should play featured characters such as Ana’s BFF Kate Kavanaugh and her platonic pal Jose Rodriguez — and most recently who would be a good fit to direct the sure-to-be erotic film.

Does James’ latest comment bum you out? Or are you happy with the progress that’s been made? Sound off in the comments.
