For those that have been wondering when actress Kim Basinger would return to the silver screen in a big way, the wait is finally over.
Basinger, who nabbed an Oscar for her work in L.A. Confidential, is set to portray an older lover of Christian Grey, played by actor Jamie Dornan. As character Elena Lincoln, her role is that of an older lover of Christian’s, and if anyone knows how to generate heat on the big screen, it is Kim Basinger, who titillated audiences alongside Mickey Rourke in 9½ Weeks.
Though critically panned by reviewers, Fifty Shades of Grey was a box office success, generating over a half a billion dollars worldwide and making stars out of lead actors Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. With the sequels set to film back-to-back, it will be interesting to see if the trilogy can make a serious dent in the box office like the original.
Fifty Shades Darker is set for release on February 10th, 2017.
