Director Gus Van Sant
has reportedly filmed a sex scene for the planned adaptation of novel 50 Shades of Grey, despite not yet (or maybe not ever) being given the job, according to Digital Spy.
Van Sant, who directed Last Days
, the semi-biographical drama film about the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain
, filmed a steamy sex sequence for the upcoming movie starring actor Alex Pettyfer
as a surreal way of bidding to direct the upcoming adaptation of E. L. James’ erotic novel trilogy.
According to The Wrap, Vam Sant cast Alex Pettyfer
as the lead male character of Christian Gray
in his short feature, while the identity of the actress playing Anastasia Steele is unknown.
The scene filmed was reportedly the moment when Ana loses her virginity to Christian.
Universal, the studio which has acquired the rights to film the movie, is not believed to have commissioned any test reels for the film.
