Fan Art Fridays: ‘Fifty Shades Freed’

The last installment of the Fifty Shades series came out in theaters this weekend, basically revving up everyone’s Valentine’s Day yet again.

Although I haven’t seen any of the movies yet, I have read the trilogy and fully intend to read Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey As Told by Christian sometime this year.

I’m pretty sure the film adaptation is very racy (it would be a waste if it weren’t, right?) and I kind of don’t want to watch them alone so I’m still waiting for the perfect moment to watch them.

Zipcy, an illustrator I recently found on Instagram posted some fan art of the film this morning, so I couldn’t resist featuring it on this week’s Fan Art Fridays. Inspired by the official movie poster for Fifty Shades Freed, the fan art features Ana and Christian Grey getting ready to do something hella raunchy!

I love how Zipcy turned this black and white grey poster into full color. It totally gives the image life, especially with the added the flowers in the right corner.

View the original fan art here, and watch the trailer for Fifty Shades Freed below.

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Film Has a Director and Release Date!

Woohoo!!

Even though I have only finished the first book of E.L. James’ trilogy, I am excited for the progress towards the production of this film. 50ShadesofGreyCoverArt Last week we learned that the film will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. You may not recognize her name but you might recognize her husband, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, from Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging, Kick-Ass and Anna Karenina. He’s 23 and she’s 46.

Yeah.

That woman has been given permission to direct this film.

This should be interesting.

She has directed the film Nowhere Boy, which is how she met Aaron Taylor-Johnson, as he starred in the film.

Fifty Shades of Grey is set to be released on August 1st, 2014.
Update: Release date moved to Valentine’s Day 2015.

Universal Studios is rumored to be casting Anastasia Steele first. The actresses most rumored/wanted are Alexis Bledel, Felicity Jones and Alicia Vikander. I personally want Alexis Bledel to play Ana Steele so badly because ever since hearing that she is a possible pick for the role I can’t imagine her being played by anyone else but Alexis.

Alexis Bledel

She’s innocently shy but smart, just as Ana is in the books, and she has the exact features that are required to play the role.

For Christian Grey, rumored actors are Robert Pattinson, Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer. If Matt Bomer doesn’t play Christian Grey, I won’t watch the film in theaters. That’s right. I’ll boycott. Matt Bomer is drop dead sexy, as is Christian Grey, and he also has the perfect features to play the role.

Some say he’ll feel uncomfortable in the role since he’s gay, but he plays perfectly straight in White Collar. This shouldn’t be a problem for him. And come on. Who doesn’t want to hear those words, “Laters, baby”, slide off of Matt Bomer’s lips?!

But for now we shall just wait and see who gets cast.

Meanwhile I’ll share with you an unofficial trailer featuring my two choices for the lead roles.
