Universal Pictures announced Monday that Mike DeLuca and Dana Brunetti, producers of The Social Network, have been confirmed to produce the film adaption of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Fans of EL James' best-selling erotic trilogy have been hungry for any type of casting announcement -- especially surrounding who will play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. But first, the film needs a director.

Who would you like to see direct 50 Shades?

One choice:  Social Network director David Lynch, who already has experience working with the producers. Also qualified: The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes. He'd certainly have the romance part down, since at its core, 50 Shades of Grey is a romance --albeit a twisted one.

Meanwhile, it was rumored Angelina Jolie may be interested in taking a look at the script, and she certainly gets approval from Celebuzz.

Take a look at the gallery above to see our dream directors.

Celebuzz has talked to stars like Kristen Stewart, Lucy Hale, Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pine about what they think of starring in the film adaptation. Watch what they had to say below:

    I think David Lynch would be an awesome choice. He's done a lot of raunchy stuff in the past, and I imagine without the utterly weird aspect it could really give Fifty Shades a unique edge. I think it would be a hard film to make it work without being tacky, and Lynch would certainly remove that risk. I also think Henry Cavill would be a great candidate from Christian Grey. It seems he could be up for the role according to this information which seems to tie in factually - http://www.henry-cavill.com/news/henry-cavill-in-discussions-with-fifty-shades-of-grey-producer-michael-de-luca/

    I have not read the books YET. but being in the industry and reading the 'not finished script', I would think that Jonathan Rhys Meyers would fit in perfectly. What does anyone else think? Anon
