Universal and Focus Features have dropped some big news on us this Labor Day. Those of you looking forward to the film adaptation of the extremely popular novel Fifty Shades of Grey will be pleased to know that we now have our two leading stars.
Nowhere Boy director Sam Taylor-Johnson will be directing none other than Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) and Dakota Johnson (21 Jump Street) in leading roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
This means absolutely nothing to me, but probably a heck of a lot to the female audiences that will be flocking to this movie, which is scheduled for release on August 1st, 2014.
Production is set to begin very soon.
Are you excited about the casting decisions?
