Angelina Jolie is reportedly lusting after a role in the move version Fifty Shades of Grey, the ‘mummy porn’ book by London author EL James.

Regarded as one of Hollywood’s sexiest actresses, Jolie is said to want to play lead role Anastasia Steele in the film.

The Tomb Raider star has apparently been reading the novel after being introduced to it while shooting her new film in the United Kingdom.

Workers on the set of Maleficent persuaded Angelina to pick up the book and since then she has become interested in a part in the forthcoming motion picture.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “Angelina kept hearing about the book while she was in the UK. All the girls on set were talking about it and how it’s being made into a film.

“Angelina went out and bought herself a copy, thinking she’d love a part in the hot topic on everyone’s lips at the moment. She knows the film is bound to be a huge hit.”

The fictional story tells the tale of a virginal girl slowly consumed by the charms of a man named Christian Grey.

The insider continued: “Ange is dead-set on a major part. She’s up for the challenge.”

Other stars in line for the role are Emma Watson, Katie Cassidy and Scarlett Johansson.
