Charlie Hunnam, Dakota Johnson named for 50 Shades film
LONDON (AFP) - The film version of erotic best-seller Fifty Shades Of Grey will star British actor Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, the book's author EL James said on Monday.
The casting of the movie, to be directed by British filmmaker and artist Sam Taylor-Johnson of Nowhere Boy fame, has been one of the most hotly anticipated secrets in Hollywood.
But instead of big names, the producers have gone for up-and-coming stars.
Hunnam starred in this summer's sci-fi blockbuster Pacific Rim while United States actress and model Johnson is the daughter of veteran Miami Vice star Don Johnson and Oscar-nominated actress Melanie Griffith.
