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.

Oh, the ties that bind.
Production is ramping up on the highly anticipated movie version of the erotic literary saga Fifty Shades of Grey, and now eager fans can get a glimpse of the two actors who'll go toe-to-toe (or rather, bondage-to-bondage) as its sexy, hot-and-heavy leads: Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, the two stars get into character as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele – with the help of a poor, unassuming silk tie.

The search is over! Almost two weeks after Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam dropped out of Fifty Shades of Grey, the steamy book series's film adaption has a new leading man: Jamie Dornan.
Though the actor is a relatively unknown face – he started out as a model before appearing on the small and silver screens – we're positive he'll have audiences swooning when he seduces Anastasia Steele (to be played by Dakota Johnson). But don't take our word for it, let his photos speak for themselves.

Following Tuesday's much anticipated release of Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy, author Helen Fielding took some time to chat live with PEOPLE.com readers and reflect on the beloved fictional character she made into a household name.
"I love talking about Bridget and it is very touching that people still care about her after so much time," Fielding, 55, told readers, adding that she never gets tired of talking about her.
Bridget, played by Renée Zellweger in the two film adaptations of the book, is a widowed mom in the third and most recent installment of the series – and fans have expressed outrage that Mark Darcy, played by Colin Firth, has been killed off.
