Angelina Jolie is rumoured to be in talks to direct Fifty Shades Of Grey.

However, Universal Pictures - who have bought the rights to turn the best-selling trilogy into films - denied the claims, insisting that no discussions have happened, reported Deadline.

According to the website, Universal said that if she was interested, then the studio would be too, since they loved her directorial debut In The Land Of Blood And Honey.

The project, based on the erotic novels by British writer EL James, is in its early stages, with the search starting for a producer and writer.

Angelina - who celebrated her 37th birthday last week - has been preparing to go back in front of the cameras, taking the titular role in Disney's Maleficent, a spin-off about the wicked queen from Sleeping Beauty.

Oscar-winner Robert Stromberg will direct the live-action spin-off, which Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Imelda Staunton and Miranda Richardson are also rumoured to be starring in.
