Fifty Shades of Grey movie buzz continues to circulate the Internet at an astounding rate, as the Anastasia Steele rumor mill continues to turn.

While Harry Potter standout Emma Watson has continued to deny that she's interested in the provocative role of the college alumni turned Red Room of Pain participant, it hasn't put a stop to her followers on Twitter from maintaining their hope.

Seemingly fascinated by the ongoing chatter, Watson took to Twitter to call her fans out on their thoughts.

"Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life," she posted in March.

"I WANT NOTHING MORE THAN FOR EMMA WATSON TO BE IN 50 SHADES OF GREY SORRY NOT SORRY BYE," tweeted a fan.

"IF EMMA WATSON IS ANASTASIA STEELE IN 50 SHADES OF GREY I WILL DIE AND GO TO HEAVEN I LOVE HER," another fan posted.

On April 14 at the MTV Movie Awards, actor Jonah Hill actually volunteered himself to co-star alongside the 22-year-old for the saucy part.

"I'm announcing officially that we'll be starring in the screen adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey," Hill said while introducing Watson, who nabbed the Trailblazer award.

"My safety word is tangerine. If I say that word you have to stop doing stuff to me," Hill added.

Interesting enough, a Twitter account that claimed ties to a hacker-activist group called Anonymous, had posted a possible spoiler on March 7 that Watson had actually landed the Steele role.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the hacker group reportedly published internal documents on the Internet with information on films in development for the German studio Constantin, who is involved in Fifty Shades.

Proceeding the news of the English actress' attachment, Gossip Cop made the decision to delve deeper into the claims. The site is now reporting that although Watson may be on a "studio wish list," she's definitely wasn't confirmed for the role.

Although the producers have yet to sign on a director to the franchise, the film is still slated for its big screen release in the summer of 2014.
