Fifty Shades Darker Movie – Kim Basinger is Elena Lincoln!

Actress Kim Basinger (pictured below) is joining the cast of Fifty Shades Darker, the upcoming movie sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey!

Kim Basinger - Fifty Shades Darker

She will play the role of Elena Lincoln, Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan)’s Business partner and former lover.

Of course Elena isn’t too happy about Mr. Grey’s relationship with Anastasia (Dakota Johnson).

Plot synopsis:
“Daunted by the singular tastes and dark secrets of the handsome, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle Independent Publishing House (SIP); but desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing love affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades.
While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women (Kim Basinger) who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.”

Actress Kim Basinger is 62 years old according to Wikipedia… I guess the movie producers want to reach older women…

What do you think? Is Kim Basinger fit for the role? or too old?

The film will open in theaters on February 17, 2017.

    Yup… Way too old! In the book Elena Lincoln, a.k.a. Mrs. Robinson, was in her 40’s. K. Basinger is in her 60’s! It’s a difference of 20 years! Bad casting ….. Perfect casting would have been Charlize Theron… But if they were looking for someone older why not Kim Catrall? Def better than Basinger!

    I agree 100% with Reyna.
