Iconic Actress And Model Set To Play Christian Grey’s Ex Elena Lincoln In Fifty Shades Sequel

For fans of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ (ok, Jamie Dornan), you’ll probably be excited to hear that the sequel is set to start production in the coming months.

Now Universal have booked iconic model and actress Kim Basinger for the role of Christian Grey’s business partner Elena Lincoln.

According to Variety, the actress will feature in ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ and the third instalment of the franchise ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ – due to be filmed back to back.

For those who need reminding, Elena is not only Christian’s business partner, but his mother’s friend and the woman he lost his virginity to at the age of 15.

Bassinger will star alongside Dornan and Dakota Johnson, who reprise their roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the box office hit.

Fifty Shades of Gray

It has also been confirmed that that House of Cards director James Foley will take over directing the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' sequels.

Foley will replace Sam Taylor-Johnson who directed the first instalment of the hugely popular movie last year.

'Fifty Shades Darker' is due for release on February 10th, 2017, with 'Fifty Shades Freed' scheduled for February 9th, 2018.
