Charlie Hunnam

Fifty Shades of Grey: A mini storm of protest greeted news that Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam had been cast as the leads in the hotly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey, but Hunnam assures concerned fans that there was "tangible chemistry" between the two from the moment they met. "It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling," he said. Asked if he had any concerns about enacting the racy material, he added, "If I could do it when I was 18 with a guy [in the TV show Queer as Folk], I can certainly do it at 33 with a lady."

Holland, Michigan: Naomi Watts is heading into thriller territory under the direction of an Academy Award-winning filmmaker. She is in negotiations to star in Holland, Michigan, which will be helmed by Errol Morris, an Oscar winner for his documentary The Fog of War. The new venture is said to be "a suburban thriller with pitch-black humor," which should be a departure of sorts for both star and director. [Deadline]

Queen of the Desert: Meanwhile, Watts is evidently departing Werner Herzog's upcoming epic Queen of the Desert, but her longtime friend Nicole Kidman is in talks to replace her. It's a period film, set in the Middle East in the early 20th century, revolving around an explorer/archeologist/writer; James Franco and Robert Pattinson are also set for the project. [Deadline]

True Detective Trailer: Matthew McConaughey, who won kudos over the weekend in Toronto for his performance as an unlikely hero who skirts the law in Dallas Buyers Club, turns to the other side of the law with Woody Harrelson in True Detective. The first trailer begins on a nicely atmospheric note and then becomes more and more unsettling; the series will debut on HBO in January. [HBO]
