LOS ANGELES, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Television personality turned model Kendall Jenner is about to become a triple threat.

Sources close to the 18-year-old reality star claim Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Wood is a big fan of Jenner and has been trying to get her to participate in the upcoming sequel for the film, Fifty Shades Darker.

"[Taylor-Wood is] fascinated by her and expressed interest in her appearing in the first film but it didn't happen," a source told Grazia Magazine via MailOnline. "Universal is also keen for Kendall to be involved in the sequel. They put in a call to her people and arranged a meeting last month, which went really well."

As for the role, Jenner would play in the cinematographic adaption of author E.L. James erotic novel, insiders say, "It wouldn't be a major role but would certainly be a foot in the door of Hollywood."

"Apparently, she'll only sign on once Sam Taylor-Wood is confirmed as the director," added the source.

Jenner launched her modeling career after turning 18 last November and has modeled for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Chanel. She's also been featured in Vogue Paris, U.S. Vogue and several other magazines. It was recently revealed she's been using just "Kendall" as her artistic name.

Fifty Shades of Grey stars Jamie Dornan as the sadomasochist businessman Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as his naive love interest Anastasia Steele. The film released its first trailer in July and is scheduled for a Valentine's Day release in 2015.
