Despite rumors to the contrary, Jamie Dornan will be reprising his role as Christian Grey in future sequels of Fifty Shades of Grey alongside Dakota Johnson. A previous report from the Inquisitr claimed that Jamie would be quitting the cast of Fifty Shades of Grey because he didn't want to be a part of it. While there has been a lot of evidence that Dornan is not a huge fan of the series, he recently shot down the rumors and confirmed he's not giving up on the franchise.
According to Metro, representatives of the actor have confirmed Dornan's plans to appear in future Fifty Shades of Grey movies, even claiming that he is "looking forward" to it.
"Jamie is delighted that the film is breaking box office records worldwide and whilst the studio has not made any formal announcements about sequels, he is looking forward to making the next film."It shouldn't be a surprise that Jamie Dornan is sticking with Fifty Shades of Grey after all the profit the film has already pulled in. While there have already been a few incidents of criminal activity as a direct result of the movie's release, audiences seem eager to flock to the theaters. According to Us Magazine, the franchise has already brought in more than $400 million worldwide and counting. A sequel is almost guaranteed, and why would an actor as well-paid as Jamie Dornan turn that down?
Many were optimistic that Dornan's departure would kill the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise, which some people believe depicts an unhealthy and abusive relationship disguised as romance. And it did seem plausible that Dornan would quit after he compared Fifty Shades of Grey to Hitler, saying that despite its content it must be doing something right if so many people are obsessed with it.
What's more, there were also rumors that after the first film hit theaters, Jamie Dornan's wife Amelia Warner was upset with how explicit the sex scenes were, and might force him to withdraw from the series. But after Dornan's agents confirmed his loyalty to Fifty Shades, it's likely that those rumors were also completely untrue.
Sequels are expected by audiences, but as Perez Hilton points out, no big film executives have officially confirmed any sequels to Fifty Shades of Grey, so it's a possibility they won't get made.
What do you think? Are you happy Jamie Dornan is sticking around as Christian Grey?
