All the announcements from Hollywood are happening this week. As excited as I am about Robert Downey Jr returning to the Avengers franchise, I am equally excited about the fact that Fifty Shades of Grey has a director. Who? I hear you ask. Well only Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s wifey Sam Taylor-Johnson. Sam’a only real big film was her directorial debut Nowhere Boy, which starred her husband Aaron. So she is an interesting and perhaps brave choice to lead the charge on this film, but this is very much a character story, and she proved with Nowhere Boy that she knows how to bring that to life.
The fact that a director is on boards means it’s only a matter of time before the cast is announced and the magic actually starts happening. Although the studio has had the rights to the film since March 2012 they don’t seem in a rush to get it out.
There are many fans who have their opinions on who should play Christian and Anastasia, me included, so it will be really interesting to see who they go for. There are so many actors that would be perfect for the role, my favourite being Matt Bomer, but I wonder if they will go for an unknown to avoid disappointing fans?
Who do you think will be cast and what do you think of Sam being in charge?
