Angelina Jolie could direct 'Fifty Shades of Grey' -- or not


If you've been able to nab a copy of everyone's favorite softcore novel Fifty Shades of Grey, you're probably champing at the bit at the idea of a potential movie (ya buncha pervs). Now your head asplode, because there's a rumor Angelina Jolie could direct it. It's like an orgy of female-empowerment! says Angie is a target of Universal Pictures over the idea, although the site stresses no talks have taken place. The studio did say they'd be willing to talk to Jolie about it if she were interested.

Universal would want nothing but the best for that title, beacuse they just took home the rights to it from auction for seven figures. Will they be able to lure Jolie after she finishes her latest project, Maleficent? Eh, who cares? A movie's coming out, either way.
