Rumors are swirling that Angelina Jolie is in talks for Fifty Shades of Grey — but not to play the female lead.
According to reports, Universal Pictures has its eye on Jolie as a potential director for the upcoming movie version of E L James’ erotic bestseller.
Gossip Cop hears, however, that the star, who helmed last year’s drama In The Land Of Blood And Honey, has NOT been formally approached.
Jolie is currently working (as an actor) on the highly-anticipated Disney film, Maleficent, and it’s likely someone else will wind up being tasked with the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation.
If any conversations have been had about the Fifty Shades directing gig — they have not been formal talks or negotiations with Jolie.
Gossip Cop will have updates whenever talks — with Jolie or anyone else — become serious.
