'50 Shades of Grey' Casting Announcements Could Be Just Around the Corner

Let's hope they shoot in Seattle and not on a sound stage!
The Fifty Shades of Grey casting announcement can't come soon enough for fans of the steamy series who've been waiting for at least a year to hear who'll be stepping into the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. In fact, some fans have lamented that the process has been dragging on for so long that they're losing interest. Eek! To be fair, though, the truth is that it takes a long time for a quality major motion picture to be made, and we definitely don't want a low-rent version, right? But yeah, at the same time, we're still itching for an update of some sort ...

Well, the latest buzz is that with the release date set for August 1, 2014, filming could begin as soon as this fall. Additionally, Celebrity Dirty Laundry reports that casting has begun to narrow down their top choices ...

Rumor has it that unknowns are more likely to be cast than known or A-list actors, which I would definitely believe more than anything else. Either way, we'll supposedly find out "within the next two months." Uh huh ... Not so sure about that!

All the official news about the film has seemed to pop up out of the blue. Even the rumors that sounded believable but turned out to be false -- like Joe Wright as director -- we didn't see coming when they did. So I wouldn't put my money on hearing anything at any particular time. Deadline shmeadlines! That includes the release date. Release dates change all the time. Who's to say this one couldn't?

Hey, you know, let them take their sweet time. It could make the difference between the film being a piece of garbage versus out of this world!

When do you think we'll get a casting announcement and they'll start shooting? Do you believe the film will be out in a little over a year?

I still am hoping Ian Somerholder will be cast as Mr Grey,I kind of have my heart set on that now.Miss Steele could be someone new as it would be great to see her unfold by book 3.Im hoping the film will be out no later than next August so it will be out to buy by Christmas 2014.I understand they don't want to rush the film but I would of thought they would have the cast by now as its been at least a year since they decided to make the books into film.

Very true! I am glad they are taking their time. If they rush into it, then we are going to have a crappy Christian and a terrible Ana. I would rather wait until we have the perfect couple! BUT I CAN NOT WAIT! All this suspense is killing me :-)

Markéta Lukšíková

Why think?! We want Matt Bomer! He is absolutely perfect

Camila Ascanio

jus one person will play a perfect Christian......... IAN SOMERHALDER!!!! 

Jacqueline Lily Kelly

Ian Somerhalder is beyond sexy and i've heard Christian is a sexy character...

Debra Anduaga

The only way I will go to see this movie is if they do the right thing and cast IAN SOMERHALDER as CHRISTIAN GREY!! He is the only one who is perfect for the role.

CG has got to be played by Ian Somerhalder!

Henry Cavill and Emilia Clarke. If not them then unknowns PLEASE!

LeAnn Perry

the role of Ana can be a "no-name" but the role of Christian needs to be an actor who is well known. whether people agree or not, the casting of Christian is a bigger deal than the other characters.
