As the filming for Fifty Shades Darker is set to begin, rumours are swirling, most importantly there are claims that as the name suggests, this will be ‘darker’ and more erotic than the first film of the franchise.
According to the first official trailer, the sequel is going to be a lot more erotic than the first, as their are possibilities of more uncut sex scenes between Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) and Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele), and maybe even some smoky scenes featuring Grey’s ex-submissive partner, his ex-dominatrix, and Steele’s villainous boss.
Hancock and Mad Max star, Charlize Theron has reportedly been approached to join the cast as Elena Lincoln, a.ka. Mrs. Robinson, a.k.a. Grey’s ex-dominatrix and the woman who introduced teenage Christian to the world of BDSM. His continued business dealings with her puts a strain on his already uneasy relationship with Anastasia.
Also rumored to be joining the cast and playing Anna’s strange boss is British actor, Henry Cavill as Jack Hyde.
Most of these are speculations and rumours which will be confirmed by next week, ones the movie starts to film. Although, the rumours of uncensored sex scenes, arose after Entertainment Tonight revealed that Dornan had been offered $1.5 million to appear in a full frontal nude scene, despite having declined to go fully nude in Fifty Shades of Grey, he now has 1.5million reasons to change his mind.
The coming movie features a new director and writer, so the changes might far exceed just additional sex scenes and extra, new faces. Hopefully the changes will include a better knowledge of Grey’s past and what makes him tick?.
Fifty Shades Darker is expected to be released to the public February 9, 2017, and the third and final film in the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed follows in February 2018.
