British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson may appear in the big screen adaptation of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY. Based on the E.L. James book, the story follows innocent Anastasia Steele who becomes sexually involved with wealthy entrepreneur Christian Grey, a man with a severe sexual appetite for bondage and sadism. Taylor-Johnson’s wife Sam Taylor-Wood is directing the project which will star Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. Taylor-Johnson was originally linked to the lead role of Christian Grey before Charlie Hunnam was cast and later replaced by Dornan. There’s no word yet on which role Taylor-Johnson would play or how large his part would be.
Taylor-Johnson is best known for his role as John Lennon in the biopic “Nowhere Boy” and as Dave Lizewski in the “Kick Ass” series of films. He will appear in the upcoming “Godzilla” remake and in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” as Quicksilver.
