Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson have landed the high-profile roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in Sam Taylor-Johnson’s forthcoming big screen adaptation of literary sensation Fifty Shades of Grey.
After months of speculation and hand-wringing from fans, the search for the Fifty Shades Of Grey leads is over.
Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam will take on the roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, respectively, in the anticipated big-screen adaptation of the sexy novel.
The news was tweeted by novel author E.L. James on Monday morning: ‘Good moaning all. Hold on to your hats…’ she wrote shortly before making the announcements.
Meanwhile, James also confirmed via Twitter that Charlie Hunnam will play the role of millionaire businessman and helicopter enthusiast Christian Grey.
’50 Shades of Grey,’ based on the baffling hit book trilogy, is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s wife) with a screenplay by Kelly Marcel. Christian Grey has yet to be cast, which means your mom hasn’t been sleeping very well lately. Give her a call.
