"Playing Anastasia would be out of my comfort zone, but I could see myself playing her best friend," Katrina told Enstarz.com. She also said that she is an avid reader and will be "there when the movie opens." Kavanagh role is supposed to be energetic, pushy and feisty friend of lead Anastasia Steele.

Other top contenders for the role are Jes Macallan ("Mistresses), Katie Cassidy ("Arrow"), Blake Lively, Ashley Benson and Amber Heard. For the role of Christian Grey's brother Elliot Grey, actors Alex Pettyfer, Kellan Lutz, Chris Hemsworth, Ryan Gosling, Cam Gigandet, Paul Walker and Chris Pine are reportedly being considered. Elliot's role is of Christian's elder brother, who is in his early 30s. Both the brothers have extreme personalities. Elliot is described as funny whereas Christian is an introvert. The older one falls in love with Kavanagh, which makes Steele jealous as Christian does not like to be touched.

The official casting for the movie is expected to be announced soon and the shooting of the film will begin this fall. The official release date is August 1, 2014. There are speculations that the announcement of the casting would be done at San Diego Comic-Con but the author of the book EL James shunned the rumors.
