Somerhalder has now revealed that he'd love a role in the movie while speaking with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show.

The Vampire Diaries star said that he could "potentially" be in the running for the role of Christian and added: "I absolutely would be up for that... It could be amazing. It could be very, very amazing."

Somerhalder, who said the role would be a "phenomenal opportunity", revealed that he has just started reading the book and continued: "That would be a pretty incredible thing and hopefully that could pan out."

However, he refused to say who should play the female lead Ana in the movie, joking: "My wheels, they're not turning, they're spinning! There are so many phenomenal actors right now... You know what I'm going to do, Ryan? I'm going to think about that, I'm going to put that in a card."
