Van Sant, Pettyfer Shoot "50 Shades" Test

Filmmaker Gus Van Sant has reportedly shot a steamy sex scene featuring Alex Pettyfer ("Magic Mike") as Christian Grey in a bid to direct the "Fifty Shades of Grey" film adaptation at Focus Features and Universal Pictures.

The 'test scene' is said to be when ingénue Anastasia Steele loses her virginity to Grey. Pettyfer was cast purely for the scene only, not as a bid for him to star in the movie. No word on which actress was cast in the test scene.

A Universal spokesperson says the studio isn't out to directors or actors, nor have they commissioned any test reels.

Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are producing this adaptation of the EL James novel.
