Katie Holmes to play Christian Grey’s ex-lover in 50 shades movie

Katie Holmes reportedly wants a role in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

It is rumored that Katie has set her sights on the role of Christian Grey’s ex-lover Elena Lincoln in the new Fifty Shades movie adaptation.

Katie is keen to “reinvent” herself and is hoping that the part of Elena Lincoln will make people notice her in the industry, reports the National Enquirer.

“She’s looking at this as the role of a lifetime for her,” an insider told the Enquirer.

“It will shock a lot of people, but she thinks Hollywood will sit up and take notice. She knows she has to reinvent herself.”

Since divorcing from Cruise, the 34-year-old actress has filmed parts for Mania Days, The Giver and Miss Meadows.

EL James’ best-selling erotic book is being transformed into a movie, with Jamie Dornan playing S&M fan Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson his naive love interest Anastasia Steele.

Sam Taylor-Johnson will be directing Fifty Shades of Grey, which is due to start shooting in December for a August 1, 2014 release.
