Whoa, buddy! The lead roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele have yet to be cast, so the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is far from premiere-ready. Like, sadistically far.

James’s erotic bestseller for the big screen. In the meantime, everyone (and their mother) is buzzing about who will star in this next major Hollywood franchise.
