Although the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey is still a ways off from hitting theaters, there are some new surprising spoilers about the cast of Fifty Shades Darker. With both Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson set to reprise their roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, it has been rumored that Dornan would be doing a full frontal scene as the sequel tries to ramp up its erotic vibe.
That being said, it hasn’t been officially confirmed if Dornan has signed on to go completely nude in the film and there are some doubts that he will, despite reportedly being offered more money to do so. However, Movie News Guide is reporting that his body double might be performing the scene instead.
According to the Telegraph, Dornan had a body double for some of the more revealing scenes in the first film, Fifty Shades of Grey. The body double was a Canadian model named Peter James, who might once again stand in for Dornan in the sequel.
Whether or not Dornan decides to go full frontal in the film, the movie is likely to be another success for the erotic franchise. Although both the film and books have been heavily criticized in the past, the first film managed to make over $550 million at the box office. Further, the books have sold over 100 million copies worldwide.
Meanwhile, other casting news concerning the sequel has come to light. According to News Everyday, Henry Cavill might be in the running to join Fifty Shades Darker as Anastasia’s employer, Jack Hyde.
The second movie in the hit franchise is set to introduce a number of new characters, including Anastasia’s new boss. Fifty Shades Darker, which is based on the book by E.L. James, centers on Anastasia as she attempts to further her career after graduating from college.
Anastasia’s career aspirations involve working under Hyde, who views her as a possible love interest. As Hyde tries his best to get with Anastasia, he manages to create some added strain on Anastasia’s relationship with her past billionaire lover, Grey.
Along with the rumors that Cavill, who is known for his role as Superman in Man of Steel, there is some speculation that Charlize Theron will join the film as Elena Lincoln. However, it should be noted that news concerning the casting of both parts has not been officially announced.
Fifty Shades Darker is expected to premiere in theaters on February 10, 2017.
