Wait no longer… Hollywood has finally put faces to our favorite kinky lovers, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

When Will 50 Shades of Grey Hit Theaters? Who Will Be The Lead?

Author E.L. James has released the names of the actors who’ve agreed to star in the cinematic rendition of 2012’s best-selling novel, 50 Shades of Grey. Drum roll, please…

Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam will play the impassioned billionaire, Christian Grey. At his side (and in his bed…), Ben and Kate star Dakota Johnson will play Christian’s love interest, Anastasia Steele.

Director Sam Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel are working together to create an unforgettable film, matching the novel’s wildly popular success. The film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey is currently in pre-production, but it is scheduled for release on August 1, 2014.

Charlie and Dakota, we sense that you’re about to become real close… real fast!
