Selena Gomez will be starring in a spoof of Fifty Shades of Grey, which will be titled as Fifty Shades of Blue and that’s as close as a former Disney star can go when it comes to a bestselling erotic trilogy.
Selena was asked by MTV if she would ever play as the protagonist Anastasia Steele and she said, “I know I’m taking risks but I don’t think I could do that, which would be a little too much for me. That would be a little too much for me.” I guess the raciest thing Selena fans will see her in is “Spring Break.”
I can see why she said that since Fifty Shades of Grey is full of BDSM scenes and sexual plot lines, I guess you could really say that sex sells since it’s sold over 10 million copies to date. During March, Universal Pictures had secured the deal to adapt the trilogy into a film and there have been many actors who’ve taken an interest in playing one of the lead roles.
Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars and Ian Somerhalder from Vampire Diaries are both pretty interested in being in a role for this film. I don’t know why since the book is basically BDSM porn without the pictures. It’s sad to see trilogies of films like this or Twilight and The Hunger Games being made when there are far better books out there that deserve a film adaption. Anyway, Selena Gomez playing Anastasia is something you won’t see in a cinema near you!
