Alex PettyferDirector Gus Van Sant has recruited Magic Mike actor Alex Pettyfer to film a test sex scene for the upcoming Fifty Shades Of Grey movie.

The Good Will Hunting filmmaker reportedly shot steamy sample footage to the show's producers in a bid to land the coveted job of adapting E. L. James' erotic novel for the big screen.

According to the website, Van Sant enlisted 23-year-old actor Pettyfer, who bared all to play a rookie stripper in Magic Mike, to tackle the role of sado-masochistic billionaire Christian Grey.

The footage they shot is believed to be a sex scene, but it is not known which actress hopped into bed to play leading lady Anastasia Steele for the test tape.

Studio bosses at Universal Pictures are aiming for a release date in summer 2014.

Pettyfer will next be seen in Lee Daniels' The Butler with Oprah Winfrey, Terrence Howard and Forest Whitaker.
