There's been a flurry of Fifty Shades Of Grey scoop this week. The steamy flick is picking up steam ... though it hasn't necessarily been completely smoothly.
First up, The Daily Mail nabbed shots of the crew shooting at Clayton's Hardware Store, the location of Ana Steele's (Dakota Johnson) part-time job during college and the spot where Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) first sees her after she awkwardly interviews him for her pal's school newspaper article.
But not everyone involved with the Fifty Shades movie is so friendly with one another. Director Sam Taylor-Johnson and Fifty Shades Of Grey author E.L. James are reportedly at one another's throats. A source dished, "Sam is getting annoyed about the way the script is being handled. E.L. James wants the movie to match the book exactly, but Sam has a different perspective. Sam is reminding E.L. she writes books and she makes movies. This has caused some tension between the two of them."
There have been a few other hiccups. Vancouver locals are said not to be too thrilled with the sexually charged film being shot there, especially scenes with artificial rain. They're allegedly firing back, with an on-set insider telling Contact Music, "Neighbors at the building were upset over the noise and water flying everywhere. An older man continued to ruin scenes by opening his window and shaking a cowbell. He did not stop until they came to some sort of a resolution with producers." The source added, "Another person in the building told production that if any water comes into his house, they will have to pay for the water damage. Residents are not happy with them shooting there. Eventually they met halfway with the cowbell resident — they had to move the rain machine to another location."
One thing that may not have been filmed? The raunchiest, explicit sex scenes that Fifty Shades Of Grey fans love. Rumor has it the smut will be toned down from explicit scenes to erotica. That's better than nothing, right? Though maybe that's the source of Taylor-Johnson and James' bickering.
