Felicity Jones turned down 50 Shades of Grey over full frontal nudity?

3 September 2013 2:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Felicity Jones was reportedly one of the actresses who turned down Fifty Shades of Grey before Dakota Johnson landed the role of Anastasia Steele.

The British actress, whose film roles include Chalet Girl and Cemetery Junction, is said to have objected to the movie's scenes of full frontal nudity.

Johnson and Charlie Hunnam both landed the roles of Ana and Christian Grey after agreeing to do a video-taped "chemistry read" for director Sam Taylor-Wood, according to The Wrap.

The site's insiders also claim that Hunnam tested with several other actresses before he committed to the project with Johnson.

Fifty Shades of Grey is expected to premiere its first teaser trailer at Super Bowl Xlviii on February 2, 2014.

Sam Taylor-Wood will direct Fifty Shades of Grey based on El James's novel and the script adaptation from Kelly Marcel.

Drake Doremus on Breathe In: 'I feel a mid-life crisis coming'

18 July 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Sundance winner is a veteran director at 30, with five movies to his credit. His latest, once again starring Felicity Jones, brings a mature eye to young love

Judging by his latest movie, Drake Doremus, 30, is in the throes of a mid-life crisis. It's customary for young American directors to make their name with dazzlingly clever thrillers or droll observations on young adulthood, but Doremus's latest movie, Breathe In, is understated, reflective and nuanced – mature, you could say. It is tightly focused on the attraction between an English exchange student (Felicity Jones) and the father of the upstate New York family she is staying with, played by Guy Pearce – a music teacher nursing unfulfilled ambitions of being a concert cellist, or a rock star. If you didn't know better, you would guess it was semi-autobiographical. Doremus looks sort of boyishly mature in person. He has wild curly hair and a beard, »

'Breathe In' review: Felicity Jones is one to watch

16 July 2013 1:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Drake Doremus; Screenwriters: Drake Doremus, Ben York Jones; Starring: Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Amy Ryan, Kyle MacLachlan; Running time: 98 mins; Certificate: 15

Brummie native Felicity Jones is one to watch with standout turns in low-key films like Chalet Girl and before that, Sundance favourite Like Crazy. She reteams with the American writer/director of the latter film, Drake Doremus (after both winning awards at the festival), for another intimate story of romantic longing, but this time she is paired with a much older man.

Guy Pearce delivers a finely tuned performance as the angsty mid-lifer, Keith, who teaches music at a school in upstate New York while dreaming of playing cello on the big stage. He gets a bit crabby with wife Megan (Amy Ryan) when she calls it "a hobby", otherwise they have a healthy relationship and a happy teenage daughter, Lauren (Mackenzie Davis).

Darren Aronofsky reportedly turned down the chance to direct Fifty Shades of Grey.

Sam Taylor-Johnson was confirmed to oversee the El James adaptation today (June 19).

Meanwhile, the article claims that British actress Felicity Jones is one of the frontrunners to play the part of Anastasia Steele.

Jones first found fame as Ethel Hallow in the TV series The Worst Witch. She has since gone on to star in films such as Like Crazy and Chalet Girl.

Sam Taylor-Johnson is best known for directing the John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy, which starred Aaron.

5 February 2013 9:02 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Felicity Jones ("Like Crazy," "Chalet Girl") will play the female lead opposite Jonah Hill and James Franco in Rupert Goold's "True Story."

An adaptation of a memoir by journalist Michael Finkel, Hill is playing New York Times Magazine journalist Finkel who was fired from the publication for reportedly falsifying information.

Around the same time Christian Longo (Franco), a killer on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List, was captured in Mexico and claimed he'd been living under the identity of Finkel in order to evade capture.

The real Finkel sees a chance at redemption when he learns he is the only journalist that Longo will talk to. Jones will play the journalist’s long suffering girlfriend who tries to stand by him.

Dave Kajganich wrote the script, while Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner’s Plan B is producing. Jones next appears in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" which just began production. »
