Will Angelina Jolie Direct 'Fifty Shades of Grey'?
Ever since news hit that a feature film version of the soft porn, erotic trilogy, Fifty Shades of Grey, was in the works, the entertainment industry's been having a grand time brainstorming a possible cast (Kristen Stewart? Alexander Skarsgård? Robert Pattinson?). But there's been little mention as to who would direct such a thing until today.

The Hollywood Reporter unearthed a rumor placing Angelina Jolie in the director's seat, which is perplexing considering she's fresh off her directorial debut of the Bosnian war love story In The Land of Blood and Honey. Needless to say, the former is just slightly more highbrow than a story of a college graduate getting her first taste of BDSM with a dashing older man.
Regardless, THR confirms there have been "informal conversations" about Angie getting onboard, but Focus Features denies she has any involvement adding that no decision has been made as to who will helm the story for the big screen.

Upon further analysis, however, Angelina might be a good fit. She was always open about her love of knives and kinky sex. Her and ex-husband Billy Bob Thorton famously told reporters he wears her underwear and she a vial of his blood around her neck, so perhaps she could draw from past experiences?
