LA Confidential actress Kim Basinger has apparently signed up to appear in the next film in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise.
Kim will play the key role of Elena Lincoln, Christian Grey’s business partner and former lover, in E.L James’ Fifty Shades Darker.
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are returning to reprise their roles of Anastasia Steele and Grey, with James Foley taking over directing from Sam Taylor-Johnson.
Production is due to begin in the spring.
Kim has already had her own erotic adventures, with Mickey Rourke in 9 1/2 Weeks – though they rummaged through a fridge, rather than a room of sex toys.
