Alas, Angelina Jolie Is Not, in Fact, in Talks to Direct the 50 Shades of Grey Movie

Angelina Jolie is not in talks to direct the 50 Shades of Grey movie, despite rumors — and dear, dear wishes — that she might be. Don't feel bad, Ange: Most of us are not in talks to direct the 50 Shades of Grey movie. Her reps tell the Hollywood Reporter that there have been no discussions between the star and the studio, which means Jolie will not follow her wrenching, rape-laden war drama In the Land of Blood and Honey with a poppy, S&M-for-beginners romance. Oh well.
