'Fifty Shades Of Grey': Is Emma Watson Going To Play Ana Steele?

Emma Watson is considering playing Ana Steele in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey, according to reports.

The International Business Times has said the Harry Potter star is "is one of the prime choices for the role".

The Twilight-inspired novel, written by British author E. L. James, follows a young college student as she embarks on a BDSM relationship with an older businessman.

Producers of The Social Network, Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti, will bring the film to screen, while actors Emma Roberts, Ashley Benson and Lucy Hale have all expressed interest in the female lead.

Christian Grey, the big shot from the book, was recently imagined in the flesh with the help of image-generating software and descriptions from women who have read the tome, while Chris Pine and True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård have been linked to the screen adaptation.

Author James has become the first writer to see three of her books (Fifty Shades Of Grey is part of a trilogy) each sell in excess of 100,000 paperback copies in a week and the film adaptation has gained huge interest.
