50 Shades of Grey has finished its shoot in Vancouver and it’s only months away from its release. The movie is set to hit cinemas on February 15, 2015.
This book, written by E.L James, was first published in 2011 and it has sold 60 million copies. It has spawned 2 sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.
The novel focuses on the story of Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and their erotic love story. It’s a story of the romance between Anastasia, a college student who fell in love with Christian,a rich controlling billionaire.
Fans have high expectations for the movie to be able to live up to the novel.
I bet most fans of the book are curious to see how some of the steamier scenes are adapted for the film. Reports and reviews, however, said that the film appears to be less explicit, focusing more on the romance and love story and not the sadomasochistic relationship portrayed in the book.
This may cause disappointment to those who have read the novel, but producer Michael de Luca promised that the film will give the fans what they expect, which is an intense and kinky romance.
Here are the other characters in the film.
Kate Kavanagh – Ana’s BFF will be played by Eloise Mumford.
Elliott Grey – Played by Luke Grimes, he is Christian’s adoptive brother.
Mia Grey – Singer/actor Rita Ora is on board to play the youngest of the Grey siblings.
Grace Grey – Marcia Gay Harden will play Christian’s adoptive mother, who’s a physician in the book.
Jose Rodriguez – Played by Victor Rasuk. Jose’s a photographer and a friend of Ana’s who hopes to win her affection.
Ray Steele – The role of Ana’s father will be played by Battlestar Galactica’s Callum Keith Rennie.
Jason Taylor – Christian’s bodyguard Taylor will be played by Max Martini.
The screenplay was written by Kelly Marcel and Sam Taylor Johnson directed the adaptation.
