The cast and crew working on both the second and third film in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy have all been accounted for following a terror-filled night in Nice, France.
According to Us Weekly, “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed” was filming in Nice just hours before a truck, driven by Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhel, plowed into a crowd of citizens celebrating Bastille Day. Eighty-four people were killed and 120 injured, though producer Dana Brunetti has assured fans of the film adaptations of author E.L. James’ sexy novels that no crew members or actors were among them.
“Production has confirmed that everyone working on location in the south of France is okay,” Brunetti wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. “Everyone has been accounted for and is safe and sound. Thanks for everyone’s messages and concerns. Another sad day for France and the world.”
Not long after news of the attack broke Eloise Mumford, who stars in both “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed,” took to Instagram to share her feelings on what had happened. The photo showed Mumford, 29, holding a sticky note with the French flag drawn on it in colored pencil. Her message simply showed a broken heart. She is the only member of the “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed” cast to speak about the attacks at this time.
The cast of both “Fifty Shades of Grey” follow up films has been spotted filming in the south of France several times in the last week. On Tuesday it was reported that stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, who play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey respectively, were seen shooting a beach scene in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France. Johnson, 26, was wearing a diamond wedding band in photos snapped by paparazzi lurking nearby, fueling speculation that she and Dornan’s character may tie the knot in “Fifty Shades Darker” or “Fifty Shades Freed.” People magazine reported that in addition to sporting what appeared to be marital bling, Johnson and Dornan, 34, were seen cuddling and rubbing one another down as cameras rolled. The publication suggests that the actors may have been filming a honeymoon scene, which is supported by the fact that in the books, Anastasia and Christian jet to Europe to celebrate their marriage.
