Fifty Shades of Grey Casts Christian and Anastasia

If you just can't get enough of the Red Room of Pain, I've got some great news for you. Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson have been cast as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the upcoming 'Fifty Shades of Grey' film. 

The film is based on an erotica novel of the same name by E.L. James, who made the announcement yesterday.

"I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of 'Fifty Shades of Grey,'" James wrote on Twitter. "The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of 'Fifty Shades of Grey.'"

Johnson, 23, is probably better prepared than most to be thrust into the spotlight. She is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. While 'Fifty Shades' will be her biggest role to date, Johnson has had minor roles in '21 Jump Street' and 'The Social Network.' I hope she's ready to to find her inner Goddess. 

Hunnam, on the other hand, is a bit more well known. The 33-year-old actor currently appears on TV series 'Sons of Anarchy,' and has a pretty great resume, including the film 'Pacific Rim' and Judd Apatow's short-lived television series, 'Undeclared.' 

'Fifty Shades of Grey' is expected to hit theaters in August 2014. 

What do you think of the film's casting?
