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.

    This is why this website has been treating her like she’s the Queen of England. They obvs know that her label are going to do everything in her power to make her pop and were paid to force her down our necks. Now look, theyve given her a movie role and nobody even knows if she can act. This industry is so f****** unfair.

    Note to self. If I want to be a major singer I have to sign to a major label who will pay websites to write about me as if I am Beyonce herself and the convince simple minded people that I am a star. Then I will use my paid for hype to get acting jobs even though I cannot act.

    How on earth was she supposed to look like the sister of Charlie Hunnam or any Caucasian person? Stunt casting at its most embarrassing. At this rate they should have just cast Brandy. They could call it Fifty Shades of Grey: I still know who you tied up and whipped last summer.

      Have you read the book? According to the storyline Mia and Christian Grey were both adopted at a young age.

        i actually read that after i made the post. i stand by my assertion that its still stunt casting.

        and no i haven’t read the book. this is going to sound snobby but i prefer to read real novels, not mommy p*** fan fiction.

    Biggest ball of hype I’ve EVER seen 2bh. NOBODY in my class knows who she is and the only people in my school who do know know her because they read about her here.

    That Roc Juice bent over backwards to make her seem like she was poppin all around the world when she’s only known in the UK. Not one to knock someone’s blessing but I can’t respect someone who is only famous because their friends with powerful and biased bloggers and have labels that spend like Queens.

    What about Melanie. wtf about Bridget. its a f****** joke.

    Rita’s d*ck sucking game must be on POINT. I don’t know who in their right mind would risk a major flop and massive financial loss giving her any role in any film. I hope this is her last flop….I mean venture so she can go away and get a job as a waitress or escort or something. Tired of the media forcing “stars” on the public. No one likes her, hang it up!

    Did anyone else see that “90 million copies sold worldwide..” and was about to blast this website for an ultimate reach to the next galaxy for Ora’s sales?

    Good thing I kept reading.

    Anyway, good for RocNation for buying this role. I can only wonder if this girl can actually act? Has ANYONE seen this girl act?

    Tisha says:

    Lol, the movie NO ONE wanted to be in and both leads dropped out of Rita Ora is excited to star in.

    Pure comedy. Maybe she’s trying to sleep with an actor and have someone else write something dissing her.

    I would say something but instead I have my tea cup ready, there’s about to be an abundance of tea in this b****.

    Y’all at TGJ should have warned me to call my pastor, there’s about to be a revival up in here.

    Mike says:

    Well, she is a flop internationally, so I guess she needs all the publicity she can get

    If people won’t pay attention to her music outside of the UK, maybe they’ll pay attention to her if she takes her clothes off in a movie, who knows…

    idgi says:

    That’s kind of fitting really, after Rob Kardashian’s little tantrum about her sleeping with like 20 guys while they were together she seems the ideal candidate to star in something like this she’s experienced enough, congrats Rita Whora. Hope she doesn’t f*** the cast and crew along the way though… xoxo

    I heard the book was awful. The movie will be too.

    Rita Slays says:

    Lmao y’all want to see this girl fail so bad its sad. Just because your life is the struggle doesn’t mean you gotta hate on someone who has a future. FYI, Rita has been in movies before, this will be her major role blockbuster debut though, hopefully with many more to come. This movie will do just as well as the books and I’ll be checking on TGJ to keep you steamed h*** update with its success when it is released. Stay salty+pressed+steamed+burnt that Rita is living the dream while y’all are at home log on to TGJ pounding away at a keyboard

    Rita Slays says:

    The Rita Whora shade is stale too btw. Rob admitted that he lied about the 20 guys. It was obvious when he couldn’t even name one of them. Find something new

    I never comment on anything about rita ora,but why y’all mad she got cast in a movie? Y’all mad huh? She has actually been in movies like the brief,fast and furious 6 and made an apperance on 90210 etc. Why y’all hate her so much bcuz y’all think she will soon take rihanna’s place? I like some of her music. These uk,canadian,and austrailian artist is takin over in the US. Y’all know tgj is loving this. Lol….

    Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me says:

    Dead. First thought I had opening this was uhh how will she play the white guy’s sister? The thirst and the REACH. Might as well be Brandy, at least people know who she is!

    Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me says:

    @Everyder – I don’t think anyone is afraid of Rita taking Rihanna’s place – people are more mad that she is not very talented and yet TGJ and other sources hype her up so much. Reevaluate your facts, and check your lipstick before you come and talk to me.

    Ora was trained at Sylvia Young – one of the best Drama schools in the UK, give the girl a chance.

    Rita whora will do a fantastic job. Her side job is screwing everyone in the industry, so she has a lot of “experience.” No way in hell I’ll be paying to watch 50 shades of grey.

    Annie Naj says:

    You are trying to be all studious by saying you read “real” novels yet here you are on a website responding to a thread about who was cast in the movie?… This is a worst waste of time than reading the books!
