Labor Day Indeed
Well, the leads for the film adaption of Fifty Shades of Grey were announced today...
Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam has officially been set to play Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, the Universal Pictures and Focus Features adaptation of the runaway bestselling book series.
This follows by minutes the official casting of Dakota Johnson to play the role of Anastasia Steele.
Grey is the young, wealthy industrialist with a dark past who favors S&M relationships. His loyalty to the dominant-submissive subset is tested when he meets the young college graduate Anastasia Steele, who seems like the perfect girl for him.
I haven't read the books and don't really know much about either of the actors, which is sometimes a good thing.
However, I do know from all the media attention over the past year that there are a lot of folks out there waiting for this steamy movie to hit the big screen.
I have a feeling that the August 1st release date is gonna result in the world welcoming a slew of brand "spanking" new babies about nine months later.
