October 28, 2013– Looks like production on the Fifty Shades of Grey film adaption will begin December 2, rather than November 1, which was the start date set when Charlie Hunnam was to star in the role.
Fifty Shades of Grey News and the Examiner reported this weekend that production would be delayed. The Hollywood Reporter today confirmed the delayed start date for production of the film.
Even though producers finally secured their star, Jamie Dornan, to portray Christian Grey, apparently more time is needed to prepare for the role.
Maybe he needs to work on turning that lovely Irish lilt into a more Seattle sounding voice? Or maybe he needs to take some “dom lessons” with a professional master; or work out for a slightly hunkier Christian Grey-like physique.
Could it be that his wife, musician Amelia Warner, is pregnant and about to give birth and they are giving him some time to become a daddy? They were spotted shopping together in London this weekend and she looked pretty well-along in her pregnancy?
It would be nice to think his production schedule will allow him to be there for the birth of his first child.
Or maybe the whole movie just needs a little more time.
According to the North Vancouver News, Fifty Shades will be filming at the Northshore Studios in Vancouver, BC. The code name is “The Adventures of Max and Banks.”
As the Alan Baltes of the Examiner reported this weekend, filming is set to begin in Vancouver on December 2.
It was announced last Friday that True Blood actor Luke Grimes has been cast as Christian Grey’s brother Elliot Grey in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” film.
The talented Jennifer Ehle will play Ana’s mother, Carla.
And of course, Dakota Johnson, is still hanging in there as Anastasia Steele. To the delight of fans, Dakota has been letting her roots go dark, letting the blonde grow out, so she can get ready to transform into Ana’s long dark hair. She is wearing lighter lipstick, rather than the dark red in so many photos, which is helping to highlight her youthful looks.
So that’s four cast members that we know about. So many more to go!
Wonder when we will hear about who has been cast as:
Kate Kavanagh, Ana’s best friend
Jose Rodriguez, the other man/good friend
Ethan Kavanagh, Kate’s brother
Grace Trevelyan-Grey and Carrick Grey, Christian’s parents
Mia Grey, Christian’s sister
Ray Steele, Ana’s Father
And of course, Taylor, the bodyguard
Who else still has to be cast for film one in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trilogy?
