The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is happening guys, and even though it seems like it will just look like every other late night flick on Cinemax, a major studio is producing which means major stars will likely star. So today, let’s take a look at five actresses who could play Anastasia Steele, the meek and submissive college student who finds herself wrapped up in the tawdry world of BDSM. And let’s not forget this is a three movie deal, so it’s gotta be someone good.
- Emily Browning — This 23-year-old Australian actress certainly has the virginal and untouched looks to play the naive Anastasia, and also played a similar role in last year’s Sleeping Beauty. Even better, the actress has the chops to handle the role and has been waiting years for her big breakthrough after starring in flops like Sucker Punch and The Uninvited. Maybe this could be it.
- Mia Wasikowska — This one may be a bit of a stretch as Mia is such a huge star with a number of projects on the way, including Lawless, Stoker and Madame Bovary, but if anyone could flesh out a character in the very underwritten Anastasia it is Mia. Being 22 and quickly nearing A-list status however, her team may want to keep her as far away as possible from this film.
- Dakota Fanning — The 18-year-old is actually in college and though a bit young for the role certainly has the emotional maturity to pull it off. What’s more, the role would cement Dakota as an adult star (not that kind guys, come on). Like Mia though, she too may be too big a star for her management to even consider the idea.
- Taissa Farmiga — Also 18-years-old like Dakota, Taissa has more than proved she can handle adult roles with her stint on American Horror Story. She will not be back for season two and just wrapped filming on Sofia Coppola’s new film The Bling Ring meaning she has the time and most certainly the look for the role. She may be the best fit yet.
- Brie Larson — Another talented actress who is waiting for her big breakout, Brie amazed in The United States of Tara, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and, yes, 21 Jump Street. And seeing how she tends to be more brash and comedic in her roles, the 22-year-old could paint Anastasia in a new and far more appealing light.
