Dakota Johnson he deepened his work in Fifty Shades of Gray, the first chapter of the trilogy based on the novels of EL James. The first film hit theaters in 2015, followed by Fifty Shades of Black in 2017 and Fifty Shades of Red in 2018. Johnson plays the lead, Anastasia Steele.
Interviewed by Vanity Fair, Johnson talked about theinfluence of EL James in processing:“He had a lot of creative control, all day, every day, and demanded certain things be included. There were parts of the books that just wouldn’t work in a movie, like the inner monologue, which was really bad at times. it would work out loud. It was always a battle. Always. “.
The production was really hectic, so much so that Dakota Johnson went to great lengths to rewrite the scene for herself: “We were shooting the movie that EL James wanted and then we were shooting the movie we wanted to do. The night before I was rewriting the scenes with the old dialogue, so you could add a line here and there. It was chaos. “
Jamie Dornan isn’t ashamed of Fifty Shades of Gray because it ‘changed my life’. And even Dakota Johnson does not deny the experience:“I don’t think it’s a question of regret, if I had known what it would have been like from the start I don’t think I would have accepted, I would have said to myself ‘But this is a psychotic experience'”.
The cast of the film also includes Jamie Dornan as Christian Graywith Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford and Max Martini.
