Former Spice Girl and David Beckham‘s spouse Victoria Beckham is being asked to contribute to the upcoming ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ film, according to industry sources.  The 39-year old mother of four has long been viewed as a fashion icon and previously offered her creative input for Range Rover‘s hit SUV the Evoque, among other creative endeavors.

Sources say that the heads at Universal Studios have reached out to Posh Spice as they hope this will lead to more ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ spinoffs including in fashion and music.  If you’ll recall, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ is a 2011 erotic novel by British author E.L. James that took the literary world by storm by selling 70 million novels in 37 countries worldwide.  Critics of the novel have derided it by saying the writing is generally poor and equating it to “mommy porn”, but its fans don’t seem to care as they eagerly await the film adaptation.

Rumors have been rampant as to the casting of the film’s main characters, 21-year old ingenue Anastasia “Ana” Steele and her domineering paramour, the 27-year old wealthy and successful entrepreneur Christian Grey.  The novel itself explores the intricacies of the couple’s BDSM relationship in great detail and has been credited for tapping into a wellspring of female sexuality as few novels have before. Casting rumors currently have Michael Fassbender as the frontrunner to play Grey and ‘Twilight‘ alum Ashley Greene to play Ana Steele, but nothing has been finalized.

Besides Victoria, Universal is also reaching out to traditional fashion houses such as Dolce & Gabanna, Diane von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, and others to work on the film. No word yet on if Victoria has accepted the gig, but we’ll keep you posted.
