Leads cast for 50 Shades Of Grey movie
Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson have been cast as the leads in the adaptation of 50 Shades Of Grey
One way or another, the movie adaptation of 50 Shades Of Grey is set to be one of the most talked about films of 2014. Spun out of Twilight fan fiction, the books have sold bigsquillions of copies around the world, and did sales of e-readers no harm at all. And the film version - whilst set to test American ratings boards at least - is full steam ahead.
We already knew that Sam Taylor-Johnson had signed up to direct the movie, but she now has her two leads for the film. First up is Dakota Johnson (The Social Network & 21 Jump Street) who will be playing Anastasia Steele. Meanwhile, her male co-star will be Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy & Pacific Rim), and he will will be playing the 27 year old billionaire Christian Grey.
The film is due in cinemas next August, where it's set to be released opposite Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy. The queue for the cinema should be interesting that night, at least...
