Dakota Johnson & Jamie Dornan Begin Filming 50 Shades of Grey

It’s about time! After months of casting speculation and a production delay, 50 Shades of Grey officially began filming over the weekend. The movie’s stars, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, were photographed filming a scene as their characters, Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.

In the pix, the costars are seen sitting across from one another on a coffee date. This is one of the earlier scenes in the book by E.L. James. 

Dakota showed off her new, brunette locks on set, which she dyed for the role, while Jamie channels Christian in a three-piece suit. The Irish actor took the male lead after Charlie Hunnam dropped out earlier this year, which is what caused filming of the movie to be delayed.

Originally slated for an Aug. 1, 2014 release date, 50 Shades of Grey will now hit theaters in February 2015.
