‘Fifty Shades’ Casting to be Finalized in the Next Few Weeks

Fifty Shades of Grey: Dakota Johnson

I think we’ll all be happy when they finally get their set-in-stone cast for “Fifty Shades of Grey,” won’t we? There’s been so much back and forth, so much speculation, that I think we’re all just sick of it by now!

NBC Universal employees have been told the recasting of Christian Grey in the company’s film version of the erotic best-seller will be finalized in the next few weeks. Ok, we’ll see if that really happens. And if the person will stick. I’m skeptical.

A company-wide “town hall” meeting on Wednesday covered a variety of subjects, but “Fifty Shades” was the hot topic in the wake of last weekend’s announcement that Charlie Hunnam was dropping out as Christian Grey, according to an NBC-Universal staffer who attended the meeting.

The source, who requested anonymity (because apparently, NO ONE wants to be associated with this movie!) – ok, really it’s because the meeting was confidential – also said NBCU officials confirmed “Fifty Shades” will still be released next year and that co-star Dakota Johnson remains committed to her role as Anastasia Steele.

The meeting was held primarily to introduce Jeff Shell, who is taking over as Universal Pictures co-chairman.

    Unless the person they cast is doesn’t go down well with fans, then no one will be happy! It’s already ruined with Dakota Johnson cast as Ana.

    I’m kind of curious, too. I am having a tough time, though, trying to figure out how they are going to rate this…R seems too unrealistic, if they stay true to the books.
