Anyone seeing the second movie in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise? The five of you: this post is for y’all:
Universal just locked in its first new cast member to join Fifty Shades Darker and to my surprise, it’s Kim Basinger replacing Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey!
I KID, I KID. Kim just looks like she is in that dapper lil’ suit of hers she wore to an old premiere. In actuality, she’ll be playing the role of Elena Lincoln, Christian Grey’s Business partner and former lover in the E.L James adaptation, sources tell Variety.
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are returning to reprise their roles of Anastasia Steele and Grey, respectively. In addition, Universal plans to shoot “Fifty Shades Darker” and the final pic, “Fifty Shades Freed,” back-to-back, so it was important to lock down cast before production began on the sequel. The real question is: who’s gonna see ANY of these movies?
