Rita Ora joins Fifty Shades movie cast

Fifty Shades fans, we’ve got some exciting news for you! Fresh off the back of those steamy cast pics which got us all rather excited about the upcoming film, pop star Rita Ora has signed up to play the part of Christian Grey’s adopted younger sister, Mia, in the Fifty Shades of Grey film.

Rita joins Dakota Johnson who has been cast as Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan, set to play saucy billionaire Christian Grey.

The news was confirmed on Rita Ora’s website with the message, “It’s official! Rita’s been cast in Fifty Shades of Grey as Christian’s sister Mia. She will appear alongside Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford and Jennifer Ehle, with Sam Taylor-Johnson directing.

The singer, who appeared in Fast & Furious 6 earlier this year, had more number ones in the UK charts during 2012 than anyone else.

Fifty Shades of Grey was actually set to launch in August next year, but the launch has been delayed after original leading man Charlie Hunnam dropped out of filming.

Fifty Shades of Grey is due to be released on Valentine’s Day 2015, but if you can’t wait until then to see Jamie Dornan getting his kit off, check out the first pictures of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey – we know you want to!
