“Fifty Shades of Grey” author E.L. James finally found her Anastasia Steele, and now she gets to show her off. The writer posted a picture to Twitter showing her posing with actress Dakota Johnson and “Fifty Shades” producer Dana Brunetti.
“The beautiful, talented, funny as feck, Dakota Johnson. Oh and that bloke @danabrunetti,” James tweets.
“As soon as we got in the room and started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us. It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it,” he says. “I went and read the first book the get a clearer idea of who this character was, and felt even more excited about the prospect of bringing him to life.”
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is slated for an August 2014 release date.
