Our interest in the 50 Shades of Grey movie adaptation just increased: Word is Jamie Dornan will film a full-frontal nude scene as kinky billionaire Christian Grey. Grey spends much of the book naked, so it’s only fitting the eminently shaggable Irishman follow suit.
Emag reports producers decided to Dornan, 31, drop trou “once they realized that fans wanted the movie to be just as X-rated as the book that inspired it.”
“Fifty Shades of Grey producers know they have to make the screen version just as steamy as the novel to make it a success,” a source told the mag. “They can’t turn it into a Disney movie.”
The actor told Entertainment Weekly he’s not really sweating being naked or simulating kink: “I’m a fairly worldly guy. I grew up in a very liberal place. I’m not saying we had a playroom, but I’m not shocked by [the sex in the book.] It’s essential to tell the story.”
Grey, which will debut Valentine’s Day 2014, is expected to be released in two versions: “We could release the R-rated version, which everyone will enjoy, and then for those fans who want to get a little gritty we could release an NC-17 version a few weeks later,” Fifty producer Dana Brunetti explained.
It’s kind of hilarious that nudity is what would separate an R from an NC-17. When did we all become the Cleavers?
