Although a second film hasn’t been officially announced, Dornan’s reps told Us Weekly that he would be more than happy to step back into Christian Grey’s highly-polished shoes.
“Jamie is delighted that the film is breaking box office records worldwide and whilst the studio has not made any formal announcements about sequels, he is looking forward to making the next film,” his rep said in a statement.
Dornan said in a recent Details interview that he was scared of how loyal fans of the books might react once the film came out, noting that sometimes superfans are very involved when a film adaptation is made.
“I almost don’t want to put this out there into the ether, but I fear I’ll get murdered, like John Lennon, by one of those mad fans at the premiere. Because a lot of people are very angry that I’m playing this character. And I’m a father now, and a husband. I don’t want to die yet,” he said.
“Fifty Shades of Grey is not a movie about kinky sex. There is hardly anything sexual about the movie. It is about the abuse of power, and its tragic aftermath. It is about a wealthy, handsome young man at the peak of his manhood being incapable of developing a meaningful relationship with a young woman who tries everything (including becoming somewhat of a sex slave) to get to his soul,”
