Gus Van Sant is hoping to lock himself a position on the crew for ‘Fifty Shades of the Grey’ as the director of choice. Van Sant decided to do a test film to send to the producers in the hope that he will get the coveted directors role.
The test film shot by Van Sant was the scene in which Anastasia loses her virginity to Christian Grey. Who did Van Sant cast as his Christian Grey? None other than newcomer to the fan favorites list, Alex Pettyfer. Pettyfer, who starred alongside Channing Tatum in ‘Magic Mike,’ casting status is as of yet unknown.
