A Tale of Two Jennifers: Lawrence to Iceland, Ehle to '50 Shades of Grey'
Zero Dark Thirty’s Jennifer Ehle is the latest actress to be added to the cast of 50 Shades of Grey, according to Deadline. Ehle will join Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam as the mother of Anastasia Steele (Johnson), which makes sense, age-wise, because Ehle is 20 years old than Johnson. Ehle, by the way, is also the daughter of Rosemary Harris, who played the grandmother in Sam Raimi’s Spider-man flicks.
Jennifer Ehle looks like this.
Meanwhile, another Jennifer — Lawrence — is negotiating to reteam with her Hunger Games director, Gary Ross, for Burial Rites, an adaptation of Hannah Kent’s novel of the same name centering on a murder trial in Iceland in 1829. According to Variety, “The story centers on a woman who is charged with the brutal murder of her former master. While awaiting execution, she is sent to an isolated farm, where the family is initially horrified at the prospect of housing a convicted murderer.”
You are now up to speed on your Jennifers for today.
