NBC-Universal employees have been told the recasting of Christian Grey in the company's film version of the erotic best-seller "Fifty Shades of Grey" will be finalized in the next few weeks.
The source, who requested anonymity because the meeting was private, also said NBCU officials confirmed "Fifty Shades" will still be released next year and that co-star Dakota Johnson remains committed to her role as Anastasia Steele.
The meeting was held primarily to introduce Jeff Shell, who is taking over as Universal Pictures co-chairman.
