Joe Wright is reported to be the frontrunner to direct the movie version of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
The Atonement and Anna Karenina filmmaker has a strong relationship with Focus Features, which is producing the big-screen version of EL James' erotic bestseller.
The Hollywood Reporter claims to have heard from multiple sources that the 40-year-old Brit is in pole position to direct Fifty Shades.
But the website adds: "Sources caution that there is no deal in place, and Wright has not officially won the job. Universal and Wright's reps at CAA declined to comment."
Rapper Eve this week declared that she'd like to see James Bond star Daniel Craig as the male lead in the movie.
