The first look at Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, has arrived online.
The black-and-white picture shows Christian Grey wearing a suit with a black mask concealing his face, reported Ace Showbiz.
In March 2014, the producer for the first film, Dana Brunetti, had said there were, as of then, no solid plans to make a sequel.
The first book of the series was adapted into a film by the same name and released on 13 February 2015. Before the first film premiered, there was still high anticipation from fans for the sequel to the film. After the first film premiered at a special fan screening in New York City on 6 February 2015, director Sam Taylor-Johnson confirmed two sequels to be succeeded after the first film, with Fifty Shades Darker to be released in 2016.
Principal photography will commence in June 2015 in Vancouver, Canada. In April 2015, at the Universal CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Universal announced the release dates of the film along with its sequel. The film is scheduled to be released on February 10, 2017. The first still from the film was released this Friday, showing Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in a black mask looking into a mirror.
Actress Dakota Johnson is expected to return as Anastasia Steele. E L James’ husband Niall Leonard is hired to write the script. No director is attached to the sequel. Sam Taylor-Wood who helmed the first instalment will not return for the next entries after she clashed with James over many aspects of the movie including the ending.
