FIFTY SHADES Begins Filming

Vancouver, Canada is standing in for Seattle, as Fifty Shades of Grey began filming last week.  A photo of the first, rather chaste, kiss between costars Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) flashed around the world today.

Several new cast members have signed on, including Marcia Gay Harden as Christian Grey’s mother and British singer-songwriter Rita Ora as his adopted sister, Mia.

One of the producers, Dan Brunetti, in an interview for the movie site, said he thought it “would be cool” if they released more explicit, NC-17 version a few weeks after the R-rated version arrives in theaters on Feb. 13, 2015. He notes, “What we’re kind of hearing from the fans is they want it dirty, they want it as close as possible [to the book]. We want to keep it elevated but also give the fans what they want.”

Two versions might solve that problem, with the side benefit of getting fans to pay twice.
