The highly anticipated casting news of who will play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation was announced yesterday. 

Dakota Johnson, of Fox's dearly departed Ben and Kate, has won the role of Anastasia Steele. Johnson has previously been seen in The Social Network, 21 Jump Street and is now shooting a modern day adaptation of Shakespeare's Cymbeline

Author, E.L. James, tweeted about the casting also announcing that Sons of Anarchy star, Charlie Hunnam will play Christian Grey.

The book is well known for its explicit sex scenes. But it is a studio movie.  If the script penned by Kelly Marcel, stays true to the book, it could really push the R rating as far as it can go.

Fifty Shades of Grey, to be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, is set to start filming in October. It already has the release date of August 1, 2014.
