In my free time I have been known to do things like stalk E L James on Twitter (I’m told this is socially acceptable internet behavior). But other times I find different things to stalk, today it was IMDB.com Fifty Shades of Grey page. A word of caution about IMDB, anyone with a Pro Account can edit a page and anyone who pays the fee can be a Pro Account user. While, most of what is on IMD is accurate, you sometimes have to take things with a grain of salt.
What I found out on my latest stalking was a few release dates, which have not been officially announced:
USA, UK and Sweden – August 1, 2014
Italy will have to wait until September 18, 2014, I’m suggesting you guys learn some English and find a cheap flight on easyjet.
The Casting Director is Francine Maisler who has a long list of casting director credits, 99 in all. She’s worked with Dana Brunetti on several of these projects and has done the casting on several big films: Moneyball, Captain Phillips, Unbroken (which I’ll bet will be a huge movie), several Spiderman movies, The People vs Larry Flint, As Good As It Gets, You’ve got Mail, Eat Pray Love, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, The Green Hornet. As you can see, she’s worked for years across many genre’s and has brought in plenty of big name stars.
The last thing I noticed was who chosen for Cinematography – Seamus McGarvey. I wish I had seen more of his movies, but there are a few I have seen, and a few bigger films. Nowhere Boy, which was directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. The Avengers, I may have to rewatch this, it’s a tough job but someone has to do it. Anna Karenina, Atonement, Along Came Polly, and World Trade Center. He’s from Ireland, no surprise there, and has been nominated and won several awards in the UK.
I’m off to find some new things on the internet to stalk…
