“Fifty Shades of Grey” Producer Dana Brunetti told News Everyday, “We’re nowhere near casting. We haven’t gotten into anything like that. We don’t even have a casting director on it yet.”

The site mentions that production of the movie is targeted to start early next year. However, with no casting director, some roles have not been filled up yet.

The casting director will be in charge of selecting actors and actresses to fill up the new characters in the movie.

News Everyday notes that the characters of Jack Hyde, Elena Lincoln or Mrs. Robinson, and Leila Williams should be in the movie cast “if the movies continue to follow the plot of E.L. James’ books.”
