Official casting of the popular book The Fifty Shades of Grey has been finally announced by E.L. James herself through her official twitter account! She first announced who will be Anastasia, followed by Christian Grey. Here are her tweets:
This news was quickly spread out through out the social media and many fans reacted about their opinions about this. Most of the fans who have read the book have same ideal Christian Grey on their mind. The Top 3 most popular and requested were Matt bomer, Ian Somerhalder and Alex Pettyfer. That's why, as expected, most of the feedback was negative.
The producer, Danna Brunetti reacted to this and explained that there is a lot going on in the casting, not just by the looks but they also consider the talent, chemistry between the actors, schedules and how far they are willing to do in some scenes so if what the fans favorite was not cast, then there's something on them that do not fit on the role. Seems like EL James also notice the reactions and tweeted
It was also confirmed that the author's first choice was actually Robert Pattinson and never Bomer and Somerhalder. The expected release date of the movie: August 01, 2014 according to Hunnam tweet.
I'm honestly disappointed too about who'll gonna play Grey, but I think Dakota is just fine for Anastasia but this casting issues cannot stop me from watching the movie. I think Danna is right, and i would like to quote something she said after explaining the casting procedures "..keep that in mind while hating and keep perspective." So I figured out how will I divert my little disappointment into something positive. Since most of the buzz is about Charlie Hunnam I browse some photos of him which pretty convince me that he actually got shades of Grey after all.
