Actor Jamie Dornan has a new challenge now! Grey or Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey As Told by Christian was released on 18 June 2015 to coincide with the birth date of the character Christian Grey. The work first printing run consisted of 1.25 million copies.
As you know, Fifty Shades of Grey movie stars Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, and its sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, are scheduled to be released on February 10, 2017, and February 9, 2018 respectively. What will happen with Grey? Will the book be a movie too? Who will play as Christian?
Jamie Dornan (and any other actor) would have problems to play as Christian Grey now. Why?
The follow-up to the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy is still Anastasia Steele’s story but Christian Grey is the narrator now. Then, we see their disturbing relation from Christian’s point of view. Is it always good to compare views? Well, it depends on the view.
In Grey, we follow each scene in the same order as in Fifty Shades of Grey. Even dialogues and the ‘peculiar’ contract between Christian and Anastasia are reproduced in the same terms.
However, since we are reading Christian’s insane thoughts, every fact is different now. He is unable to understand a woman, and he misinterprets Anastasia. Christian is an absolute macho and sometimes, he almost seems an idiot. In fact, all Christian thinks about is sex and food! We cannot understand how he’s a successful businessman!
Speaking about Anastasia, he says that she is “one of the few women I’ve met who can sit in silence, which is great.” Aren’t you speechless? He is absolutely silly!
The first trilogy was a fantasy. This book is more realistic, but is the realism of a man with any kind of empathy (and brains). And we cannot stop thinking that as Christian ages and his savings are exhausted, it will be completely alone. There is no happy ending to this story! I love actor Jamie Dornan but this role is impossible to play!
