Has the upcoming big screen version of “Fifty Shades of Grey” found its Christian Grey and a director?
According to The Wrap, director Gus Van Sant has shot a racy test sex scene featuring “Magic Mike” star Alex Pettyfer as the book’s BDSM-loving lead.
A source said the sex scene shot was with Anastasia Steele, who is a virgin until she meets the billionaire playboy. No word on who stepped in (and undressed) with Pettyfer for the racy clip.
The source said the director and actor have not been selected by Universal to head up the project based on the E L James bestseller.
However, Pettyfer is currently starring in the Universal remake of “Endless Love.”
A rep for Universal told the Wrap they have not commissioned any test shoots or lined up any directors or actors for the project.
