With Fifty Shades Darker currently in pre-production, fans can expect the sequel to reach new depths of eroticism. The movie, directed by James Foley, will once again center on the romance between Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and is set to include frequent and more revealing sex scenes this time around.
According to Movie News Guide, the added sex scenes follow criticisms that the first film failed to deliver enough erotic moments for moviegoers. With the heightened level of sex in the sequel, both Dornan and Johnson will show more skin in their respective roles. Luckily, Dornan recently admitted that he is willing to do just that.
In an interview with People, Dornan expressed his excitement to play Christian once again, and that he is prepared to show more of his character than ever before.
“I’m looking forward to embodying Christian again – and getting a chance to show more of him,” Dornan told the magazine.
One reason behind Dornan’s motivation to reveal more of his character might have to do with a bump in pay. Hollywood Life is reporting that producers offered the Fifty Shades of Grey star a bonus of around $1.5 million in order to show everything in the upcoming sequel. According to an inside source, Dornan “would be crazy not to consider it.”
Despite the reports, neither Jamie Dornan nor producers have commented on the bonus offer. Even still, fans can expect Dornan to show more skin in the movie, although it might not be in the form of a full frontal.
Meanwhile, with the film still under development, the majority of details concerning the movie have not been revealed. That being said, Dornan recently opened up about some of his past roles during a quick fire Q&A session with Bafta Guru.
In the video interview, which can be viewed on YouTube (or below), Dornan was asked about which role has been the hardest for him to portray over the course of his career. Although most fans thought Dornan would cite his role as Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey as being his most challenging to date, the actor had a different answer.
“I think probably Paul Spector from The Fall because he’s just so heinous and I don’t have anything going on in my life that I can compare to what he does in his,” Dornan stated.
Unlike Christian Grey, Dornan’s character on The Fall is a serial killer. Understandably, Dornan shares more in common with a billionaire with a liking for BDSM than a vicious murderer.
At the same time, one fan asked Dornan if he had any tips on remembering lines. In response, Dornan revealed a simple trick he uses to make sure he doesn’t forget his character’s lines.
“I tried numerous things, loads of different methods. I think the one that works best but is most embarrassing is recording both sides of it and putting it in your iPhone… while walking around, basically talking to yourself,” he stated in the interview.
Unfortunately, Dornan did not reveal any spoilers concerning his upcoming role in Fifty Shades Darker. With production for the movie expected to begin in the coming months, more details surrounding the film, including additional casting news, should be released over the coming weeks.
Fifty Shades Darker is an adaptation of E.L. James’ bestselling novel by the same name. The movie is scheduled to release in theaters on February 10, 2017, while the third movie in the hit franchise, Fifty Shades Freed, is set to air in February of 2018. Director James Foley is replacing Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directed the first movie in the franchise.
