So far it has been announced that the film adaptation of the novel will be released on August 1, 2014, and that it will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.

On Monday, The Hollywood Life quoted a source that claimed the cast for the film was to be announced at the upcoming Comic-Con.

“A reveal of the cast is currently planned for Comic-Con,” the insider reportedly said.

However, author E.L. James took to Twitter to deny the rumors.

“I dunno where this rumour started that the cast would be revealed at Comic Con…but it is just that – a rumour. (Sighs),” James wrote.

Ian Somerhalder, Henry Cavill, Matt Bomer are among the favorites for the role of Christian Grey.

In addition, E.L. James’ presence at a party organized at Robert Pattinson’s home sparked rumors that the Twilight star could get the lead role for the film.
