    Another Fifty Shades of Grey casting has been announced!

    Shortly after learning that Brit singer Rita Ora will take on the big screen as Christian Grey's sister, Mia, E! News confirms that the studio has chosen Marcia Gay Harden to play his adoptive mother, Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey.

    Harden joins stars Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) and Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) in the erotic E.L. James adaptation, along with Luke Grimes as Elliot Grey, Eloise Mumford as Anastasia's best friend, Kate Kavanagh, Victor Rasuk as Anastasia's close friend Jose, Jennifer Ehle as Anastasia's mother, Carla, and Max Martini as Grey's bodyguard.

    There are still a couple of characters that need to be cast, but fans are especially curious as to who will take on the role of Elena Lincoln—the older and sexy blond who is Christian's longtime friend and business partner, and also the woman who introduced Grey to the S&M lifestyle when he was 15 years old (which inspires Ana to nickname her "Mrs. Robinson").

    Seriously, who is going to be Elena?!

    Anyway, filming for the highly anticipated flick has already commenced in Vancouver, Canada. Dornan and Johnson were snapped on set for the first time on Dec. 1, 2013, shooting their café in the city's GasTown District (remember when Steele said, "I am going to have coffee with Christian Grey...and I hate coffee"?).

    Fifty Shades of Grey is scheduled to hit theaters Feb. 13, 2015.
