“Fifty Shades Darker” lead actor Jamie Dornan will star in the upcoming movie “Untogether.”
Photos from his first filming day were released online (via Just Jared), and it showed the actor wearing a semi-casual attire. Dornan also grew his beard for the role of Nick. In another photo, the actor could be seen talking to a crew member. Dornan also wore an off-white longsleeve shirt while reading his script. In another photo, he changed his attire yet again before walking along the streets with an unnamed woman.
“Untogether” will follow the life of a teen prodigy who got addicted to heroin. After recovering from substance abuse, she tries to become a writer. The movie also stars Jennifer Grey as Josie, Ben Mendelsohn as Martin and Lola Kirke as Tara. “Untogether” will be released sometime next year.
Meanwhile, Dornan recently debunked rumors that he will be replaced by “The Vampire Diaries” actor Ian Somerhalder for the role of Christian Grey. During his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Dornan said, “That would be really hard for them to do, considering we shot both of the movies. That’s an expensive mistake. I’ll put it that way.” Dornan added that if ever he will indeed be replaced, all he has to say to Somerhalder is “good luck.”
In other news, Dornan recently said filming “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed” was so much easier for him than shooting “Fifty Shades of Grey.” In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Dornan said that there was just too much pressure before “Fifty Shades of Grey” was released. “I think when you’re making the first of any franchise there is a lot of pressure in terms of setting a tone and the way it’s shot and the way it’s played and finding your feet with it,” he said.
“Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed” are slated to hit theaters in the United States on Feb. 10, 2017 and Feb. 9, 2018.
