Aug. 22 (UPI) -- The eagerly awaited casting announcement for the stars of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie is expected to come in just a few weeks and the rumor mill is working overtime.

"Fifty Shades" author E.L. James set tongues wagging when she posted a picture on her Twitter account with none other than Captain America himself, Chris Evans.

"Having fun..." she captioned the photo, with a wink.

(Then again, no one read much into it when James tweeted a picture of herself with the author of a different kind of fantasy, "Game of Thrones" scribe George R.R. Martin.)

Evans is only the latest in a long line of stars finding their names linked to the "love story with a kink." Earlier this week, industry rumors have named "Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam with the Christian Grey role, and "21 Jump Street" actress Dakota Johnson was named as a possible Anastasia "Ana" Steel.

Alex Pettyfer, Ian Somerhalder, Ryan Gosling and Robert Pattinson have also been connected to the film.

Whoever ends up slipping into Christian Grey's shoes, the film is expected to see wide release on Aug. 1, 2014.
