Actress in talks to play Anastasia’s mother.
JENNIFER Ehle is eyeing the role of Carla May Wilks in the forthcoming film adaptation of E.L. James’s bestselling novel, Deadline.com reports.
The American actress is a TV icon in Britain, in large part thanks to her role on the BBC adaptation of Pride And Prejudice, which aired in 1995. The actress, recently seen in Contagion and Zero Dark Thirty, is in talks to play the self-centred and flighty Carla May Wilks, mother to the heroine, Anastasia Steele, in Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Fifty Shades Of Grey is slated to hit theatres in summer 2014. Announced in early August, the feature will depict the torrid liaison between a rather vanilla 23-year-old and a billionaire who is a fan of S&M. Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam will play the two lovers.
British filmmaker Sam Taylor-Wood will direct the adaptation, which should benefit at the box office from the success of the novel. The original Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy has sold over 40 million copies worldwide.
