With 90 million copies sold worldwide and Sam Taylor-Wood enlisted to direct its film adaptation, E.L Woods’ erotic novel ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ made history months ago when it became the fastest selling ‘paper-back’ of all time.
Now, as its cultural impact continues to show no sign of letting up, the novel’s forthcoming flick has enlisted one of Pop’s fastest rising stars to bring one of its characters to life this week.
A star, who goes by the name of….Rita Ora.
Set for a February 2015 release, the Universal Pictures project welcomed Ora to its cast hours ago, after she earned the role of Mia Grey, sister of lead character Christian Grey- to be portrayed by ‘Beyond the Rave’ actor Jamie Dornan.
News of the entertainer’s casting comes one day after filming reportedly began in Vancouver’s Gastown, doing so with the benefit of a $40 million budget and ‘Crazy in Alabama‘s Dakota Johnson as its leading lady.
