Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson get a little closer on 50 Shades of Grey set
Usually this kind of fanfare and intrigue for movie-sets is reserved for superhero movies or YA franchises but when we are talking about one of the best-selling novels in a decade, you can understand the attention it attracts.
Fans of the novel may recall a bike-scene, when Anastasia Steele was almost struck by a moving cyclists and Mr. Grey himself saves the day. That was the scene being shot when mysterious cameramen from afar took a few pictures of the film’s two stars, sharing one of their first-ever embraces.
Production on the film of E L James’ bestselling novel began earlier this month (December 1) and the film itself has drawn a ton of press since it began filming. You may remember the headlines when “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam, stepped down from the leading role and allowed Jamie Dornan (who just became a father this month) to stand-in.
Sam Taylor-Wood is directing the film, which is being released on February 14, 2015. Also involved in the film are Rita Ora, Dylan Neal, Jennifer Ehle, Marcia Harden, Eloise Mumford, Victor Rasuk and Max Martini Callum.
The book involves Grey, who falls in love with college student Anastasia, and the two begin a new relationship of S&M and pushing each other’s boundaries (physically and emotionally).
