The pair have been spotted in the rain filming outdoor scenes this week. And the crew weren’t happy with the lack of sexual chemistry and lack of passion in the love scenes.
They were seen re-shooting parts of Fifty Shades Of Grey last week, with less than four months to go before the erotic flick gets its cinematic release. And now it seems that rather than merely perfecting a couple of scenes, producers had Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan back on set re-enacting their steamy encounters due to a concerning absence of heat between the duo.
A film source has revealed to Us Magazine that the footage didn’t feel ‘passionate’ and producers have been disappointed by the lack of chemistry.
‘Dakota isn’t coming off sexy enough’ said a second source. ‘Ana needs to be naive, not a dish-rag.’
A Universal rep denied the lack of chemistry and said: ‘No one should question the heat or intensity of our actors.’
The cast are determined to get it right however, with another insider adding: ‘They want to do sequels, so this has to be perfect.’ [Us Weekly via Daily Mail]
They also did re-shoots about 10 days ago when an insider told E! News “They are still editing. They are happy so far with the way things are going. They are shooting fillers, having to add some more material. [E.L. James] did not feel there was enough, even though she is happy with everything so far.” The insider added, “Jamie and Dakota are super relaxed and no issues as of yet on set. Everything is going good.”
The movie trailer was released in July and quickly became the most-watched trailer of the year.
Previously, former leading man Charlie Hunnam said the role caused his nervous breakdown as the role and pressure were too much. In addition to some major scheduling conflicts with his movies and the final season of Sons of Anarchy.
