50 Shades of Grey in El Médano 24-28 February

Update 4 February 2014: The grey shades get clearer … the filming in Tenerife will take place between 24 and 28 February in playa de la Tejita in El Médano. Necessary permissions have already been arranged with Granadilla Ayuntamiento. The group of actors, including Dakota Johnson (daughter of Melanie Griffiths and Don Johnson) and Jamie Dornan, who play the leads Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, will arrive in Tenerife shortly in advance of filming.

Update 29 December 2013: And … it’s Tenerife. In the middle of February the production team has confirmed that it will be filming scenes from the honeymoon (there’s a honeymoon?) on Tenerife beaches.

Original post 26 December: The production team behind the film version of E.L.James’ novel, 50 Shades of Grey, is looking in the Canaries for locations to film several scenes. Filming has already started in Canada, after various delays, and the final result is expected to be released on 13 February 2015 … St Valentine’s Eve …

How many will want to go to see the film, to see if they recognize the locations, of course …
