Rebel Wilson wants to get in on Fifty Shades action

Los Angeles - Rebel Wilson got Dakota Johnson to ask Universal if she could be in Fifty Shades Freed

The 35-year-old comedienne has revealed her How to Be Single co-star - who plays submissive Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey film franchise - told her about a role in the final instalment that would be ideal for her, so she encouraged her to put her name forward. 

She said: "Dakota was like, 'You know there's this one character,' I forget the name, but it's a dominatrix character that pops up in the third movie. And she was like, 'Rebel, you could be that.' 

"So I was like, 'If you want to put in a word for me with Universal and see what happens, yeah.' And she did offer to do that!"
While Rebel insists she hasn't read any of E.L. James' Fifty Shades erotic romance novels - which the films are based on - she would love to do some "whipping" in the third movie in the series. 

She added to Cosmopolitan's website: "I don't know how I'd be in a Fifty Shades of Grey situation. I haven't read the books so I don't know what goes on in those movies! 

"The whipping might be fun, but you'd probably have some tight leather outfit that wouldn't be very breathable. Who knows, I'll wait and see if I get offered the role."

Filming for Fifty Shades Darker, the second movie in the franchise - which sees Jamie Dornan play sexual sadist Christian Grey - began Wednesday.

E.J posted a picture of the set on Instagram and added the caption: "Day one #FSD Good luck to all the cast and crew (sic)"
