50 Shades Of Grey, the hit novel full of all sorts of erotica by E.L. James, has found its two lead actors in the shape of Pacific Rim’s Charlie Hunnam and TV’s Ben And Kate star Dakota Johnson.  Sam Taylor-Johnson, the director behind Nowhere Boy is calling the shots on the film which is aiming for an August 1st 2014 release date.  The film will tell the story of Anastasia Steele, a young student, who finds herself in all manner of compromising positions with millionaire Christian Grey.  Hunnam will take on the title role with Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, taking on the Anastasia role.  At one point such names as Emma Watson and Henry Cavill were rumoured for the roles but it seems they have gone slightly less high-profile, perhaps not surprising given the sexually explicit nature of the film.  Source – E.L.

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email:
