What an amazing article FSoG fans can look forward to reading in the February 2015 issue of Details Magazine! Much insight is revealed about the movie from producer Michael DeLuca and director, Sam Taylor-Johnson.
Oh, and in the tradition of Details Magazine…it probably includes some gorgeous pictures and behind-the-scenes video of our leading man, Jamie Dornan. ;) He describes the ups and downs to his particular process of auditioning for the role of Christian Grey.
So the article asks if Jamie can dominate Hollywood. Fans aren’t worried about all of Hollywood — we are just looking for him to bring the character of Christian Grey to life in a way that does justice to our love for the story!
Enjoy this excerpt:
The classy and sophisticated Taylor-Johnson was drawn to this very mass-market project by the balance of power between Steele and Grey. “I’d not seen a love story as complex, or with sex as complex,” she says. “You feel you’re in his world, then slowly it’s revealed that you’re in hers. To be able to flip this tale, without the woman becoming a victim, was something I felt strongly about.”This is Taylor-Johnson’s second feature (after 2009’s Nowhere Boy, a biopic about the young John Lennon), and by the time it opens, she will have worked on it for close to two years; the editing alone has taken more than nine months.The biggest challenge involved the calibration of sex. “There’s so much of it!” Taylor-Johnson says with a laugh. “The difficult part has been to give each sex scene its own identity and character, so that the first is incredibly different from the last—and to try and do it in a way that feels powerful, not just salacious.” Equally concerning was the balance of nudity, which is plentiful; Taylor-Johnson was committed to making sure that both stars were naked an equal amount—without “feeling that just she is objectified or just he is.”
