It's Official, Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson for Fifty Shades of Grey


The speculations on which actors would play the lead roles in Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaption has been stopped as Universal Pictures published two separate press releases announcing Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) and Dakota Johnson (Ben and Kate) to play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the movie version of E.L. James' erotic novel of the same name which is set to open in August 2014. Read on to see the full press releases after the jump. 

The British author E.L. James also announced it on her Twitter account  saying " I am delighted to let you know that lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey."  and then in the following hour she tweeted "The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey." 

If this first try is going to make box office records worldwide, then fans are most likely get a trilogy movie with "Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades of Freed" being the second and third books respectively.   

Here are the press releases:
