It feels like just yesterday filming for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie kicked off. With just over a year left until the film's February 13, 2015 release date -- things are getting steamy on set. According to producer Michael De Luca, they're about halfway done with putting together the film. Gah!
But you know what I'm looking forward to the most? The fab chemistry between Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. De Luca says that the film's Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele have really hit it off.
"The chemistry is there, they genuinely like each other," he said. "They're enjoying the story, the story is so powerful."
Powerful? Ha! That's the understatement of the year.
It's safe to say that since the big casting announcement was made, fans of the hit series have been a little concerned about the film's leading actors. However, as more and more news and footage come out giving us behind-the-scenes sneak peeks at what's going on -- it seems that Dornan and Johnson are going to be just fine.

Who cares if the sex scenes are going to be tame compared to the original E.L. James erotica? What real fans want is a good story. A story that brings the book to life on the big screen appropriately. Sure, sex is part of that -- but it's not ALL of that.
One thing's for sure: The more and more filming that's done, the more and more sneak peeks we'll all get of what's to come. I don't know about you guys, but I wouldn't mind some more shirtless Jamie Dornan stills. Can I get an AMEN?!
Are you satisfied with Jamie and Dakota as Christian and Anastasia?
