Everyone and their mother – perhaps most upsettingly, especially the mothers – has been anticipating the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Well, anticipate no longer, for it is at least partially a reality.

Producer Dana Brunetti Tweeted a picture of a film slate from the set Sunday with the caption, "Here we go." Sadly, the slate was notably devoid of leather, lace, or a ball-gag, but did feature the E L James series's tasteful feather motif.

It shouldn't come as news to anyone that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are playing the film's leads, though it may surprise you to learn that Melanie Griffith is "thrilled" about her daughter playing an ingénue being slowly drawn into the world of S&M.

Although the original Christian Grey actor, Charlie Hunnam, dropped out of the film, causing an uproar, pictures of Dornan like these seem to have mitigated any further fallout.

We're all very excited.
