London: Mark Wahlberg has revealed that he had almost acquired the rights to E.L. James` erotic novel and would`ve cast Brad Pitt in the role of Christian Grey.

Wahlberg said that he wanted to produce because he was never going to get the script first and he had to wait for Brad Pitt to pass, the Mirror reported.

Jamie Dornan has been cast as Christian Grey following Charlie Hunnam`s departure, while the role of Anastasia Steele would be played by Dakota Johnson.
