#FIRSTLOOK: SAM TAYLOR-JOHNSON NAMED DIRECTOR OF “50 SHADES OF GREY”
Although it’s not quite exactly the news we’re all waiting on, this will do for now! Nowhere Boy Director/Visual Artist Sam Taylor-Johnson, has just been announced as the Director of upcoming Erotic-Romance 50 Shades of Grey. The hotly-buzzed Film Adaptation of the Bestseller by E.L. James is still being scripted and the Author took to Twitter today to announce: “I’m delighted & thrilled to let you guys know that Sam Taylor-Johnson has agreed to direct the Film of Fifty Shades of Grey.”.
Several Actors and Actresses have been named to be in the running for the coveted roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, a Business Magnate and Student whom are – pardon the pun – bound initially by their highly dominant/submissive sexual relations. We’re all still eagerly awaiting the casting choices for the Universal Pictures Production.
We had the pleasure of meeting Tayl0r-Johnson in Toronto last Fall as she accompanied Husband Aaron at the Premiere of his Film Anna Karenina. Lovely Woman. She was actually incredibly shocked anyone wanted a Photo with her!

#FASHION: DAVID BECKHAM UNLEASHES H&M WINTER 2012 BODYWEAR COLLECTION
Just in-time for the Holidays, David Beckham launches his brand new Winter 2012 Bodywear Collection for H&M. Including in this Set are padded Longjohns, a Towel, Lounge Shorts, Henleys and a must-have Hooded Bathrobe (seen above). As is the case with any Post about David Beckham, Visuals are necessary and he has never looked better. See the Collection here. I personally own a few items from his last Collection and they are the most comfortable things ever!
Also in Toronto recently to support her Husband Aaron Johnson who was here both for TIFF 2012 and also filming Kick-Ass 2, British Artist/Director Sam Taylor-Wood (both whom I had the pleasure of meeting!) recently filmed a Campaign for H&M‘s Maison Martin Margiela Collaboration. The Collection launches Thursday, November 15, 2012 and Toronto’s Eaton Centre will be among the Stores carrying it for a limited time. Click here to watch the Video shot on a deserted Paris Street. Amaze.

#TIFF12: AARON JOHNSON AT PREMIERE OF “ANNA KARENINA”
Definitely at the top of my list of People to meet at TIFF 2012, Aaron Johnson is one of Cinema’s brightest Rising Stars. After winning much praise for his work on Kick-Ass and also Nowhere Boy, the Actor is set to begin production also on Kick-Ass 2 in Toronto. Johnson attended the Premiere of Joe Wright‘s Anna Karenina earlier this evening at VISA Screening Room. Although Fans caught a glimpse of him and his Partner, Director and Artist Sam Taylor-Wood‘s arrival at the venue, few were able to get close. Johnson did however make it up to Fans signing-up a storm of Signatures upon leaving for a quick Dinner break with Taylor-Wood, as Co-Star Keira Knightley stayed to enjoy the Film.
