Following the news from earlier this week that Jamie Dornan had replaced Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey comes word that Luke Grimes has now been cast as Christian's brother, Elliot.

The "True Blood" actor is also joining Dakota Johnson and Jennifer Ehle in the August 1, 2014 release based on E L James' #1 bestselling book. To be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, the script for Fifty Shades of Grey was written by Kelly Marcel. Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are producing the movie version alongside James.

Universal Pictures and Focus Features acquired the rights to the three books in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy in March 2012. Focus Features will market and distribute the first film in partnership with Universal. "Fifty Shades of Grey" has become a global phenomenon and the trilogy has been translated in over 50 languages worldwide since its release. To date, the “Fifty Shades” trilogy has sold over 70 million copies worldwide in e-book and print, making it one of the fastest-selling book series ever.

"Fifty Shades of Grey" (first published in 2011) follows the relationship of 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey and college student Anastasia Steele. Subsequent novels in the series, "Fifty Shades Darker" (2011) and "Fifty Shades Freed" (2012) explore the couple’s deepening relationship.
