The 29-year-old actress revealed that she wants the play leading role in the upcoming film adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic best-seller.

“There are times when you just want to do something fun and different because you’re going to have a good time doing it,” Kunis said, according to The Sun.

EL James’ book which is sold all over the world reveals the story of innocent Anastasia who locked in an S&M relationship with kinky billionaire Christian Grey.

Harry Potter star Emma Watson, 22, has also been linked with the role. Drive hunk Ryan Gosling, 32, is reported to play Mr Grey.

However, the movie producers haven’t chosen the actor for the role of the billionaire. ‘Vampire Diaries’ star, Ian Somerhalder, has been very outspoken about his interest in the racy role, while ‘Magic Mike’ hunk, Matt Bomer, has continued to top fan polls.

Brit screenwriter Kelly Marcel is working on the script. She said: “It will be raunchy — we’re 100 per cent going there.”

According to Marcel’s vision of the best-seller, it is a “modern love story”, while the BDSM-obsessed Christian Grey is an “old-fashioned and romantic” hero.

The screenwriter has been recently interview by The Telegraph speaking of her hopes of making the upcoming film a success and promising “a lot of sex” and a “raunchy” screenplay.

“Regardless of what you may think of the writing, this is a modern love story, involving two complex characters, and that’s what I’m interested in,” she said at the time.“You have to work at it and talk about s— and figure it out, regardless of what that s— may be.’

Marcel went on, adding: “I don’t care what anybody says, there is something about Christian that is old-fashioned and romantic.”

The screenwriter did admit that numerous intimate scenes which are described throughout the book would have to be edited to fit them into the film, but pledged it would stay true to its “raunchy” roots.

“Well, there is going to be a lot of sex in the film,” she said. “It will be NC-17 [the equivalent of a British 18 certificate].”

“We did go through and decide which are our favourites and which are not. Most of them are in there, but I can’t say more than that,” Marcel confessed.

The writer kept on talking, revealing that she had been forced to take some steps to protect the details of the hotly-anticipated film, and refused to give away who would play the male lead, Examiner writes.

“No actor would sign up to a film without a script,” she told reporters. “That would be insane.

“There are shredders arriving at my house at this moment, because in LA my trash was gone through. Who is playing Christian, who is playing Ana – seriously, people are rabid about this thing.”

She added: “The fans love this book, and I want them to love the film as much. I want to make them laugh and cry, to turn them on. I want this to do everything.”
