As per usual, the 50 Shades of Grey chatter continues to take the Internet by storm. While nobody has officially been confirmed for the role of the S & M-crazed billionaire Christian Grey, Vampire Diaries Ian Somerhalder did have many fans wondering whether he'd actually nabbed the part.

This past weekend, the 34-year-old sent out two tweets acknowledging a movie he's been working on, which surely served to raised the eyebrows of many 50 Shades loyalists.

In the first message, Somerhalder acknowledges the rigors of flying.

"Still can't sleep-jet lagg. Working on new movie script-take'n short break..."

In the second tweet, the actor speaks about a short film stint in Paris, and a productive day in London.

"Paris-it was short and sweet, thanks for the abundance of love.  Great day in London, rehearsing new movie. So.  Damn.  Happy. Here.  In. Europe."

 Recent news had surfaced that Somerhalder had called it quits with TV series co-star Nina Dobrev, causing speculation on if the racy Grey role had anything to do with it.

According to the Celeb Dirty Laundry section of Hollywood Stuff 4 U on May 5, Dobrev had an issue with Somerhalder taking on such a racy role, especially with another mostly nude actress.

"She doesn't want her man, covered by a sock, dry humping an actress covered by strips of tape. That's why she believes she should be his leading lady. But here's the thing. Ian doesn't like to be limited. That's why he flew out of New York right around the time she flew into it."

Screenwriter Kelly Marcel, who is in the midst of penning the 50 Shades script, had stated that the flick would be staying true to the book with lots of sex and raunchiness, as the producers are shooting for an NC-17 rating, according to a write-up in Style Magazine.
