Although opening night is only a few months away, the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie leads are apparently back for some more steamy filming. Guardian LV News confirms this Thursday, October 16, that Jamie Dornan (our Christian Grey) was spotted alongside Dakota Johnson (Ana Steele) in Vancouver for some necessary reshoots. While this news might sound troubling at first for some fans, filming reshoots aren’t anything “bad” or detrimental to the upcoming movie; they are frequent procedures in post-production work and editing.
After Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the role as Christian Grey earlier this year, we learned that model Jamie Dornan would be suiting up — quite literally — to play the irresistible male lead in “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Readers have certainly warmed up to the good-looking star, who seems to be embodying the striking CEO more and more as time goes on. Dakota Johnson, meanwhile, was said to be a favorite of EL James for the part of Anastasia for quite some time, so here we are with our casting couple.
Additional filming in Vancouver is said to be taking place this week, notes the report, and Christian and Ana have reunited as a result. New scenes are not necessarily part of the current process, as Cosmopolitan also notes that a majority of work is now focused on reshoots. These common procedures are often accomplished during post-production in major motion pictures in order to make a film’s final editing and portrayal as strong and connected as possible on the silver screen.
If anything, the producers may simply have felt a bit deeper footage of the Red Room of Pain was necessary, no? Jamie Dornan was spotted wearing a dapper gray suit, so the reality is that the reshoots of certain scenes may be decidedly less tense. Nevertheless, with Christian Grey at the center stage, fans’ eyes aren’t likely going anywhere. Dakota Johnson was also seen this week at the filming site with cardigans and a big umbrella, but nothing too seductive was part of her attire — yet.
Things are definitely heating up between our leads, even if it is only playfully when off the set. Several photos were taken of our Christian Grey and Ana Steele stealing some hot-and-heavy kisses together in one scene, while another captured the couple sharing a laugh when the cameras stopped filming. Apparently, concludes one insider, the actors “had a really great time on the reshoot … and are having a lot of fun together.” That chemistry between this sexy couple is of definite importance when final film time rolls around.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” still has an aptly set premiere date of Valentine’s Day in February 2015. The chemistry between our Christian and Ana seems palpable, the finishing touches with filming are being completed, and EL James is even hinting at a new book in the near future (whips and ties included). Who else is looking forward to the heat of all that next year has to bring? Suffice to say that many fellow fans are fifty shades of excited for all that is in store.
