'Fifty Shades of Grey' heartthrob Jamie Dornan will play a famous writer in the independent movie 'Untogether' with Jemima and Lola Kirke and Ben Mendelsohn
Jamie Dornan will star in 'Untogether'.
The 34-year-old 'Fifty Shades of Grey' heartthrob has signed up to the independent project alongside real-life sisters Jemima and Lola Kirke and 'Place Beyond The Pines' actor Ben Mendelsohn.
Dornan will play rich and famous writer Nick in the ensemble case, who embarks on a relationship with Jemima's character Andrea.
Andrea is a former teen prodigy and heroin addict on a road to sobriety and trying to become a writer herself.
Lola will depict her onscreen younger sister Tara, who is dating an older man named Martin portrayed by Mendelsohn. Their solid relationship is rocked when she finds herself attracted to an even older Rabbi.
Emma Forrest is behind the camera and it will be her directing debut.
Speaking about the movie, she said it is about: "The desire we all have to be seen, really seen. Sometimes we get lucky and find a partner who fulfils that criteria. Sometimes we get even luckier and meet someone who shows us that who we truly are ... is not what we'd convinced ourselves."
Meanwhile, Dornan just finished shooting 'Fifty Shades Darker' and 'Fifty Shades Freed' in the franchise that brought him worldwide fame but he's adamant he won't reprise his role as sexy protagonist Christian Grey for a possible fourth film.
He said: "We have done two movies back to back now, and I'm actually finished with it. I've done 'Fifty Shades...' forever.
"I move on very fast in my mind. As much as from the outside people think you are synonymous with one character, but I'm very much like, 'Right, that's done' and move on to the next project and worry about that character."
The first blockbuster was a huge hit last year and pulled in $571 million (£425.85 million) worldwide.
