Gus Van Sant Shoots 50 SHADES OF GREY Test Scene with Alex Pettyfer

While many don't feel that a "50 Shades of Grey" film should be happening (myself included), apparently director Gus Van Sant feels strongly that it should. Van Sant has reportedly filmed a steamy sex test scene to show what he could do with the project at the helm.

The test scene was shot with actor Alex Pettyer ("Magic Mike" and "I Am Number Four") as Christian Grey, and the hope of Van Sant is to impress Focus Features and Universal Pictures, that he wins the director's chair.

The scene is said to be when Anastasia Steel loses her virginity to Grey. It has not been reported yet what actress was in the scene with Pettyfer. Allegedly Pettyfer is not also trying to cast his own bid as the title character but was purely doing a favor for Van Sant.

A Universal spokesperson says the studio hasn't spoken to directors or actors yet and has not commissioned for a test reel, so Van Sant took the initiative all on his own. Great initiative indeed, Van Sant. While I read the books and definitely don't think they lend themselves to an interesting film, I am indeed curious to see this test reel that he feels so passionately about.

What do you think of Van Sant's initiative? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
