The “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie is now officially underway, and the first steps in filming began this weekend, much to the excitement of fans across the world. Photos posted to Twitter from author EL James and producer Dana Brunetti reveal that the first slates of introductory scenes between Christian Grey (Jaime Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) are now being filmed, the Hollywood Reporter confirms this Monday, Dec. 2, 2013.
Although delays, a new Christian Grey, and other setbacks have been tough on many “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie fans, the hotly awaited film finally began shooting this Sunday in Vancouver, and images of Jaime Dornan and Anastasia Steele in a café has the entire fandom buzzing this week. As seen in an Instagram and Twitter photo linked by the inner goddess author herself, there was a glimpse of the film team producing its first take of the adaptation’s 25th scene.
The latest images also reveal Christian Grey looking handsome as ever in one of his dark suits along with a windblown Anastasia Steele sitting opposite him in a local café. While most details surrounding “Fifty Shades of Grey” production and filming are still under wraps at this point in time, this update is good news in and of itself, showing that film work is apparently going according to schedule.
A recent delay in filming for the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie pushed back the steamy released date from late 2014 until Valentine’s Day, February 13, 2015, so we still have a long wait ahead of us. However, the latest casting news — with Eloise Mumford being confirmed to star as Kate Kavanagh, Ana’s best friend, just last week — and other details on the film’s production will likely keep us entertained until we can see the Red Room of Pain for ourselves.
Talk of two versions of the film (a theater-ready and then more intimate adaptation) has also been rumored, so more news surrounding “Fifty Shades of Grey” is no doubt on the near horizon. Are you equally excited? What do you think of the latest production images?
