'Fifty Shades Darker' updates: Hugh Dancy joins cast as Dr. Flynn


In less than a year, the sequel of “Fifty Shades of Grey” will be hitting the theatres. As the production is ongoing, one more cast joins the set.

British actor Hugh Dancy will be joining “Fifty Shades Darker” as Dr. John Flynn, the psychiatrist of Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), revealed an exclusive report from The Hollywood Reporter.

The upcoming film will revolve around the story of Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) getting a new job. Later on, some skeletons in the closet is likely to appear as three people from the past of Grey will resurface, including Mrs. Elena Lincoln (Kim Basinger). This will likely put a chip in Christian and Anna’s relationship as it has also been hinted that they will break up. Given this, Grey will be talking with Dr. Flynn as he deals with the matters at hand.

Author of the novel EL James warmly welcomed Dancy to the set, as posted in Twitter. Fans are also generally pleased with the newest cast, expressing their delight on the actor, with some even citing his talents in other engagements.

Meanwhile, there were reports that surfaced a few days ago about the difficulty that Dornan and Johnson are having in the production because of “lack of chemistry.” Aside from this, there are also talks that Dornan is unable to focus in the filming as he is distracted by the joy over his newborn child. There were even rumors that he quit the set because of the problems arising between Dornan and his wife, due to the intimate scenes that the film has.

Nonetheless, Gossip Cop slammed all the rumors, citing that Dornan and Johnson would not have been cast together if they were having “chemistry problems.”

“Fifty Shades Darker” is expected to hit the big screen on Feb. 10, 2017. The franchise still has another movie slated the following year, titled “Fifty Shades Freed.”
