exciting news on the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Hey there, I'm Lauren Bradshaw. Find out why we're one step closer to casting Christian and Anna and bring the best-seller to the big screen in today's PopSugar Rush. Dana Brunetti and Michael DeLuca are two of the producers behind The Social Network and now they're taking on Fifty Shades of Grey. Now this is very good news for the movie and BuzzSugar editor Shannon Vestal is joining me now to help explain why. Hey Shannon. Hi. So why having Dana and Michael? Why is that good for the movie? Well, these are producers of Oscar nominated films with The Social Network and Money Ball. And I think that having them involved kind of brings more credibility to this adaptation. And also it means that production is moving right along and that means that we're closer to casting really. Right. I know we've all been very excited for that. How do you thinks that their involvement is going to implode the casting. I think that having these heavy weight producers involved might attract bigger names that would have been interesting since the book is so racy I feel like maybe some actors may have shied away a little bit. Right. Well, that's a good point. Well, I know you have had a lot of BuzzSugar readers weighing in on who they would like to see. Yeah. Who 's the one that most people think you'd be rallying behind. Surprisingly BuzzSugar readers love Jessie Pavelka whose a fitness model. You may not have heard of him 'cause he doesn't have a huge acting resume which to me doesn't mean he might be the perfect choice for Christian. Readers are also loving Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys Targaryen, who if you've seen the show you know that she's probably not shy about nudity. Yeah, so she actually probably be a good fit for this. But who do you want? My personal Christian Grey is Supernatural's Jensen Ackles. I think that he has that right mix of intensity and tenderness. And what about for Anna? For Anna, I'm really liking Analeigh Tipton. Most people would remember her from America's Next Top Model and Crazy, Stupid Love. I think she's just got that perfect wide-eyed innocence thing that's so Ana. Well, perfect. Well, hopefully, we'll be seen to casting you soon. Whoever gets it, it's gonna be huge for them. Oh yeah. Well, thanks so much Shannon. Yeah, of course. And tell us in the comments if you're excited to hear about this latest Fifty Shades of Grey movie news. I'm Lauren Bradshaw and I'll see you next time on PopSugar Rush.
