The big honchos over at Fifty Shades of Grey have made a HUGE casting decision for Fifty Shades Darker, whacking the position of Christian Grey's ex-lover right into the hands of Kim Basinger.

It might feel like the first Fifty Shades movie is a world of whips and eye masks away, what with it coming out around this time last year and not much of a peep coming from their direction since, but bosses have confirmed a new casting has been made.

Kim Basinger off of LA Confidential and Nice Guys fame is set to play Elena Lincoln - Christian Grey's business partner and also a former lover. The character was only hinted at in the first film, and is painted as much older than Christian, with actress Kim being 29 years senior to Jamie Dornan's age 33. Ooh-err.

According to Variety, Dakota Johnson, Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford and Max Martini have all signed on to return to the second movie, with James Foley taking over as director-type and Niall Leonard helping pen the script.

What's more, is Fifty Shades Darker will film back-to-back with the final instalment, Fifty Shades Freed, so prepare to be totally Christian Grey-ed over. YAAAS.
