We have a director and a date—but still no Christian Grey.
After rumors began swirling the highly anticipated cast of Fifty Shades of Grey would be unveiled at Comic Con, author E.L. James took to Twitter to shoot down the latest casting claims.
"I dunno where this rumour started that the cast would be revealed at Comic Con...but it is just that - a rumour. (Sighs)," the writer posted on her page Monday morning.
The false report comes on the heels of Focus Features announcing a release date for the steamy flick. The film will hit North American theaters on Friday, Aug. 1, 2014.
It was also recently revealed Sam Taylor-Johnson signed on to direct the upcoming film based on the erotic novel, which originally began as Twilight fan fiction.
"I am excited to be charged with the evolution of Fifty Shades of Grey from page to screen," Taylor-Johnson told E! News exclusively. "For the legions of fans, I want to say that I will honor the power of Erika's book and the characters of Christian and Anastasia. They are under my skin, too."
