'50 Shades of Grey' Movie Insider Spills 5 Details We've Been Waiting For

Flicks 114

dana brunetti producer 50 shadesFifty Shades of Grey fans have been waiting so long for official movie details that it's starting to seem like we're NEVER going to hear a peep from the studio! But thankfully, producer Dana Brunetti chatted with Lori and Michele on Northwest Prime radio the other day and was sweet enough to spill several veeerrry interesting details about casting and what we can expect down the road. And you can't get more official than one of the producers himself, right?

Here, all the latest juiciest scoop on the movie we're hoping will MAKE summer 2014 ...

  1. According to Brunetti, there's no need to worry about the release date. It will be August 1, 2014.
  2. He alluded to the fact that many fans may be disappointed with their choice for Christian, explaining that everyone needs to understand how difficult casting can be and that when you read a book, when you have an image of the character, what you get on screen rarely matches that image. He acknowledges that a lot of people will be unhappy with the choice, no matter who they pick.
  3. Brunetti says they are paying attention to fan chatter about casting, and it is considered, but many other factors are going into the decision.
  4. The biggest hold-up it seems with casting is that they want to make sure the chemistry is just right between the leads. Makes sense. Brunetti explained that they need to do a chemistry test between the lead actors before signing. Whoever is picked up as Christian will have to test with who they like for Ana. That said, he made it sound like Christian will be chosen first, and then Ana. But that's not definitive.
  5. Speaking of definitive, as of right now, there's no official plan to produce Fifty Shades Darker or Freed flicks! They want to, but they say the focus is entirely on the first film right now. Which they've gotta knock out of the ballpark so we can get movies 2 and 3.

What are your thoughts on what Brunetti had to share?

Judging from what he's saying, I don't think my only choice, Henry Cavill, will be picked to portray Christian Grey. I don't understand why they can't see him for the part. He is Christian Grey. All I have to say is if they pick the wrong person for the first movie, they might as well kiss the others goodbye!

By the time this movie is cast and made and shown, all those old ladies that were so turned on with these books...will be DEAD.

All I have to say is Ian is not only a fan favorite, his intensity and vulnerability shows thru his acting. With just a look or body movement. He has everything Christian needs. I really hope they pick him. Alexis Beldel as well.

Ian, please cast IAN as Christian ... He's perfect!

Honestly, if they pick ANYONE that the fans want it isn't the right fit.  Burnished copper hair is a shade of RED....and none of these guys have that.  Ian is a DINOSAUR to play Christian with a flock of crows hanging around his eyes, and Matt isn't that good at acting.  No way a gay man can pull off those scenes!  None of them have the body type described in the book...the inverted triangle.  Re-read the books folks....these choices SUCK!

How do we get our thoughts on who should be Christian recognized by the right people? It says they are taking fans ideas into consideration. I have one for you.....PERFECT CHRISTIAN = Dan Feuerriegel (from Spartacus).
