Stephen Amell in Fifty Shades of Grey movie
London: 'Arrow' star Stephen Amell has been approached to play Christian Grey in a movie adaptation of EL James' bestselling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
Just a week after movie executives were forced to dismiss rumours suggesting Emma Watson had been cast as student Anastasia Steele, all eyes are now on the Canadian star after he recently said in a Facebook chat with fans that he has been involved in talks about the role of masochistic billionaire Grey, reported Daily Star.
"I get questions about Christian Grey all the time. That project is a long way off. I know this because I had a meeting about it. A long way off. I mean, not that long. But not close," he said.
Ian Somerhalder is considered a fan favourite to land the role, but he has so far refused to speculate about the Grey film.
Watson's apparent casting hit blogs and gossip sites a week ago when anonymous hackers leaked stolen documents from a German film studio.
Among them were letters that appeared to confirm the 'Harry Potter' star would be playing Steele.
