Jennifer 'Lizzy Bennet' Ehle to be mom in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

 by Bryan Alexander, USA TODAY

 Oh, Elizabeth Bennet, where have you ended up? Right smack in the middle of the screen version of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Anastasia Steele has a mother in Fifty Shades of Grey. Her name is Carla and she will be played by veteran actress Jennifer Ehle, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ehle knows a little thing about complicated love. Fans of the most famous Pride and Prejudice (1995) know Ehle as Elizabeth Bennet alongside Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy. This was a long time before any Red Room of Pain.

Distributor Focus Features did not comment on the casting news.
