…or rumours depending on which side of the pond you live on. However you spell it, the word still means the same thing.
Author tweet July 6, 2012:
We are so far away from casting the Fifty films … no-one ruled is out… no one is ruled in. Just so you know.
Co-producer tweet July 23, 2012:
All of the rumors on
#FiftyShades are just that – rumors. No one has been cast in any role. We have to get a writer and director first.
Co-producer tweets July 23, 2012:
Even Emma Watson wanted to set the record straight in an interview with Entertainment Weekly regarding rumors that she was in talks to play the role of Anastasia Steele.
“I haven’t read the book, I haven’t read a script, nothing. There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call. It was the same way with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – I never even saw a script!”
She went on to say, “The thing is, I’m not going to go out there every time someone attaches me to a film to say no or release a statement.”
Emma Watson fans may not want to rule her out completely though. One could read between the lines and hear a “Call me maybe.” ;)
But for all you Fifty Shades fans, here’s something that’s not a rumo(u)r. One can read the lines of the author’s tweet and see “films” instead of “film.” :)
