Lovehoney Checklist

There has been no shortage of news, reports, rumours and fanfare regarding the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation. As we've learned from recent incorrect director reports and the false rumour that we would be hearing a casting announcement at Comic-Con, a lot of the Fifty Shades news has very little if any truth to it. 

For a while it felt like we were being drip-fed information, but now that the film has producers, a screenwriter, a director, and a release date in place, there is no doubt that casting is next on the checklist. While everyone continues to guess who will portray Christian and Anastasia and how and when it will be announced, we now have some reason to belive that Ana could be cast first.

Actress Katrins Bowden

The latest Hollywood starlet to show interest in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey is 30 Rock actress Katrina Bowden. Opening up to Enstars about the films casting, the 24-year-old actress revealed she isn't interested in the lead role of Anastasia Steele, but she can see herself playing Ana's sexy and confident best friend, Kate Kavanagh.

Mark your calendars! Today E L James announced the official release date of the highly anticipated film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey via Twitter and Facebook

Director Sam Taylor-Johnson

Yesterday was Christian Grey's birthday, but today Fifty Shades fans around the world are celebrating another special occasion – we finally have a director! E L James made the announcement on Twitter earlier today.

Universal Pictures and Focus Features have chosen British director Sam Taylor-Johnson to helm the film adaptation of James' bestselling novel Fifty Shades of Grey. Even though many observers felt a female director would be ideal (yes, Sam is a woman!) the choice of 46-year old Taylor-Johnson is still surprising, given the high profile of the project and her limited number of credits. She only has one feature film directing credit to her name – 2009's Nowhere Boy, a chronicle of John Lennon's early years. The film garnered the rookie director a pair of BAFTA nominations and was well received by critics. Formerly Sam Taylor-Wood, the director married the star of the film, 23-year-old British actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill

It's a good day for Henry Cavill fans. We know the hunky actor, who's about to knock our socks off as Superman in a few weeks, is a top contender for the lead role in the Fifty Shades of Grey film adaption. He's one of our longtime favourites here at Oh Fifty and it turns out that Man of Steel director Zack Snyder is also a fan of the idea and has given his approval.
