Any “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie news is hot, hot, HOT! But unfortunately any news dealing with the much-awaited film is also very scarce. Fans may have to wait until 2015 to watch Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson heat up the screen as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, but author E.L. James is making sure to fuel the fire with some photos from the set.
There is one catch, however. James can’t release any specific scenes from filming. So, how is she getting around it? By tweeting photos of … shoes!
The first photo released by the author came on Nov. 8, when the author tweeted a photo of a man in work boots toe-to-toe with a woman in gray flats. “Guess who …,” she posted.
Twitter followers immediately guessed that the shoes in question belonged to the stars of “Fifty Shades,” Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. And while James didn’t confirm nor deny the guess, she followed up with another photo – this time with the man wearing dress shoes and the woman wearing some beat up white sneakers. “All change …,” she tweeted along with a winky face.
The tweet seems to imply that the first photo was of Dornan and Johnson, and that the actors transitioned into their roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.
James kept a low shoe profile on Twitter after the Nov. 8 photos, only posting photos of her own shoes. But she returned with a vengeance in early December. On Dec. 11 a photo of a man in sneakers popped up on her Instagram account. “Luke Grimes’ trainers are too clean …,” teased the text that accompanied the photo.
Grimes, who is known for his role as vampire James in “True Blood,” joined the cast of “Fifty Shades of Grey” in October. The actor is playing Elliot Grey, the adoptive brother to kinky millionaire Christian Grey. Grimes is set to play opposite Eloise Mumford, who was added as Anastasia’s best friend and Elliot’s love interest, Kate.
Kate’s shoes have yet to make an appearance (or Elliot’s to be exact), but earlier this week James went on a shoe tweeting FRENZY! On Dec. 15 she posted a photo of her boots along with what appears to be Christian’s. “Feet … One of them is mine …,” the “Fifty Shades” author tweeted.
The next day she followed up with a photo of director Sam Taylor-Johnson’s “colorful shoes” and a picture of Ana’s gray “Chucks.”
Some fans love the shoe photos while others hate the tease. But why is James posting them? “The feet thing … I’m not allowed to photograph anything else,” she explained to her fans on Twitter.
I think I answer for most fans when I say – Keep any and all photos coming!
Filming for “Fifty Shades of Grey” is under way in Vancouver. The movie was delayed due to casting issues, and a release date was pushed back from Aug. 1, 2014 to Feb. 13, 2015.
