emma watson for fifty shades of greyShe isn't the first actress that springs to mind when we wonder who will star in the film adaption of Fifty Shades of Grey but apparently Emma Watson is in line for a leading role.

According to reports today the Harry Potter and My Week With Marilyn actress is in initial talks to play the books leading character Anastasia Steele who is take in my the charms, power and money of Christian Grey.

Fifty Shades of Grey has been a phenomenon the likes of which haven't been seen since The Hunger Games or Twilight. So popular in fact is E. L. James' tale of S&M and fetish that she reportedly makes a massive £6,000 an hour from book sales.

Watson isn't the first actress to be linked to the leading role. Pretty Little Liars actresses Ashley Benson and Lucy Hale have both also been rumoured to be approached for the role but we imagine if push came to shove they'd probably pick Watson. She is after all the best known actress of the bunch but whether she's up to shacking her good-girl image for something more raunchy we're still undecided.
