It has been more than a year since the original installment of the '50 Shades' trilogy 'Fifty Shades of Grey' was released. Now, fans are preparing for its much-awaited sequel 'Fifty Shades Darker' which is set to be released in theaters on February 9, 2017.
The waiting is almost over. However, rumor has it that the film is on the brink of being pulled out due to the speculations that have been going around the main casts Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, and the film itself.
Johnson dates co-actress Cara Delevingne
The personal issues going between Dornan and Johnson, and their recent performance during the shooting are said to be the root cause of a seemingly substandard production of the upcoming film. Yibada recently told that Johnson and 'Suicide Squad' actress Cara Delevingne are reportedly dating and that the latter does not approve of Johnson and Dornan's chumminess on the set. This event has left Johnson and Dornan's previous bond in a gap.
Johnson and Dornan are losing their chemistry
Another problem on the set concerns Johnson and Dornan's inherent spark together. The stars have been receiving spiteful remarks regarding their "lack of chemistry" issue. In one of the sexy scenes in the movie, both stars had to re-shoot multiple times because "Johnson isn't coming off sexy enough" and that both just simply lack chemistry. However, in a report by the Daily News, an insider from the Universal Pictures denies the issue saying "No one should question the heat or intensity of our actors."
Actors demand seven-figure pay raise
The first installment earned $571 million worldwide and the producers would definitely make this sequel on air by next year for another box office record. However, there are speculations that other problems '50 Shades Darker' producers are facing are the demands for pay raise by Johnson and Dornan.
Will these demands lead to the sequel's cancellation? Check out the report by Jobs & Hire.
