Did Celebrity Hackers Confirm Emma Watson for '50 Shades of Grey'?Nick Romano |
Celebrities like Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have all fallen victim to those dreaded hackers, who recently jacked a ton of stars' phone numbers and credit card information. But the terror doesn't stop there. A while ago, another crop hacked into the German studio Constantin and reportedly revealed the answer to one of the most important questions for 'Twilight' fan fiction fans -- who will play the female lead in the '50 Shades of Grey' movie?
The collective of hackers, known as Anonymous, successfully broke into the database of German movie studio Constantin, acquiring tons of secret information about upcoming projects. For one, as per a report by THR, the group claims to have unearthed files confirming a long-standing rumor that Emma Watson of 'Harry Potter' fame will be playing the female lead in the '50 Shades of Grey' movie, Anastasia Steele.
The star, who'll be seen next in Sofia Coppola's true-to-life film 'The Bling Ring,' has danced around the issue in the past, and more recently turned down the major role of Cinderella in Disney's live-action remake. Although she still has the lead in Guillermo del Toro's 'Beauty and Beast' looming on the horizon, some people hoped she had something big waiting in the wings, and what's bigger than a BDSM movie based on 'Twilight' fan fiction?
It's no secret that Watson is trying to shed that good-girl image she acquired through all her years filming the 'Harry Potter' movies. Aside from 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower,' her next role in 'The Bling Ring,' based on true events, sees her as one member of a group of fame-hungry teens who break into celebrity homes and "go shopping." Not to mention she's amping up the sex factor in this one (see the above pic) so perhaps '50 Shades' isn't too far from which films she wants to pursue.
