The latest rumors about the 50 Shades of Grey film adaptation say that the official casting offers will be released after Labor Day.

It has been reported that the cast of the film will be announced after the holiday. The casting is not likely to be finalized yet, as auditions still have to take place even after offers are put on the table. The chemistry between the two main characters, Christian and Ana, is likely to be a factor.

Recently, Charlie Hunnam of FX's series "Sons of Anarchy" was rumored to be the actor chosen to play Christian. One website, however, claims that Variety magazine reported that Hunnam was never under consideration for the role.

Rumors that Chris Evans will star in the film were sparked by a photo that author James uploaded on her Twitter account.  In the photo, James is smiling with a hand on the stomach of Evans, 32. The caption reads, "Having fun... ;)"

Other actors rumored to have been considered for the role of Grey include Alex Pettyfer, Ian Somerhalder, Ryan Gosling and Robert Pattinson.

Dakota Johnson, who appeared in The Social Network and 21 Jump Street, has recently been rumored to join the cast as well.  The actress is allegedly under consideration for the lead female role, Anastasia "Ana" Steel.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Universal has said that they are far from making casting offers as of now.

Meanwhile, a long list of actors have been recruited into the rumor mill of possibilities...and subsequently denied it. This list includes, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Jerry O' Connell, Armie Hammer and Emma Watson.

"Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life," Watson wrote via her Twitter account.

Fifty Shades of Grey is expected to be in theaters Aug. 1 of next year. The film will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.
