Max Martini has had a pretty good 2013 with roles in Pacific Rim and Captain Phillips, and now he’s signed up for another fairly big flick. THR reports he’s nabbed one of the final major roles in Fifty Shades of Grey.
He’s set to play Jason Taylor, the bodyguard of kinky billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).
Dakota Johnson will be Anastasia Steele, a young college student who starts a torrid, famously S&M filled affair with the 27-year-old Grey. Jennifer Ehle is set to be Anastasia’s mother Carla, Luke Grimes is Christian’s brother Elliott, Victor Rasuk is Anastasia’s friend Jose and only a couple of days ago Eloise Mumford joined the film as Anastasia’s roommate Kate.
Sam Taylor-Johnson is directing from a screenplay by Kelly Marcel, Patrick Marber and Mark Bomback. Film will begin next month in Vancouver, with a February 2015 release set..
