Angelina Jolie to Direct Fifty Shades of Grey?

9 Jun

Universal Studios wants to meet with Angelina Jolie and discuss the actress directing Fifty Shades of Grey. Angelina had her directorial debut last year with In the Land of Blood and Honey. The film received mixed reviews, yet critics agreed that Jolie had potential and could be a great director.

We all know that Angelina had her crazy times that included marrying Billy Bob Thornton (shudder), kissing her brother for an uncomfortable amount of time and talking openly about her sexual exploits. In recent years Angelina has simmered considerably, adopted children, become a UN ambassador and promoter of humanitarian causes.

I suspect this story is a media ploy. It’s an effort by Universal Studios to create even more buzz for the movie adaptation. I think Jolie has enough sense not to direct something so mindless when she wants to be taken seriously.  Shame Universal…SHAME!
