Anonymous Hacks Movie Studio, Reveals Emma Watson Will Star in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

It looks like the one thing that could make men around the world actually want to watch a movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey is actually going to happen. If the hacker group Anonymous is telling the truth, at least.

Anonymous is claiming that it has hacked into the servers of German movie studio Constantin Film and discovered secret documents that reveal plans for the film adaptation of E. L. James’ controversial softcore porn novel. Then, as Anonymous tends to do, the group boasted about the crime on social media sites:

Not many juicy details were discovered in the documents, but one item that will be of interest to many is that actress Emma Watson (Harry Potter) has apparently been confirmed to play the role of Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades adaptation.

Just to make things especially clear, this means that there’s a good chance we’ll see some Emma Watson nude scenes in the future.

Watson had been rumored to be interested in the role for several months now, but her name hasn’t been officially attached to the project. Of course, nothing is official yet — but this leak could accelerate the studio’s plans to reveal the cast to the public.

Then again, the leak could also cause the studio (or Watson) to get cold feet and back out of things. Predictably, the hacked studio claimed that the stolen documents were out of date and that no important information had been revealed. That may or may not be true, but the fact is that if pen hasn’t yet hit paper, there’s no guarantee that we’ll get the chance to see Hermione Granger’s mouth do “the merengue with some salsa moves” on Fifty Shades’ Christian Grey.

And yes, that is actual text from the novel. It’s really, really bad.

  1. Several things, that file was over 4 months old, it wasn’t even a file from 2013. A lot of change happens in films (hell we just saw what happened to Voices and Cinderella this week for Emma.) For 4 months, over a hundred people had access to this file, and no one said anything beforehad if it was true? If this was true, and one of the biggest hyped castings in recent memory, wouldn’t they limit who had access to it? I didn’t know you thought 50 SOG had better security than our Drone program. And really the key thing to focus on here, it wasn’t even hacked from a movie company (Universal, Disney, etc) but rather from a German distribution database that has NOTHING to do with the creation of the film. Distribution companies have NOTHING do do with casting, pre-production, or filming. All they do is make a bid on the finished product.
