Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson: 'Fifty Shades' Actress Dumped By Chris Martin For Dua Lipa? Actor Takes A New Role
It cannot be denied that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are two of the most bankable stars in Hollywood today. The two became household names when they appeared together on the Fifty Shades movie franchise, which is based on E.L. James' novels, as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, respectively. While some fans claimed that the two are returning for a fourth film, recent reports suggested that this is unlikely to happen right now.
One of the primary reasons why it is impossible for Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson to reunite, at present, is their respective brand-new projects. The husband of Amelia Warner just joined Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo in the Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar sitcom recently. The Fifty Shades star is set to play as a spy named Edgar who would meet Barb and Star as the pair go on vacation in Vista del Mar, Florida.
It remains to be seen if the character of Jamie Dornan is a friend or a foe in the series. Fans, also, have yet to find out if Edgar has an involvement with the villain's plot to kill everyone in Vista del Mar, which may include BFFs Barb and Star. The new project of Dakota Johnson's former on-screen leading man is set to be released in 2020. Josh Greenbaum is said to direct the sitcom while Kristen, Annie, Jessica Elbaum, Will Ferrell, and Adam McKay would co-produce it.
Dakota Johnson, for her part, is said to lead a forthcoming film titled Wardriver along with Jack O'Connell. Reports have it that the movie would focus on the story of a young hacker based in Los Angeles who is "lured into heisting" the back account of an innocent woman. No other details about the rumored new project of Jamie Dornan's ex-leading lady have been revealed as of yet.
Meanwhile, other reports suggested that Dakota Johnson and boyfriend Chris Martin have called it quits already. The primary reason behind the alleged split remains unclear up to this writing since neither Jamie Dornan's former on-screen ladylove nor the Coldplay frontman has commented on these reports yet. However, there are claims saying that it might have something to do with the actress' extreme closeness with Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris' close friendship with Dua Lipa.
"There was the talk of engagement, but now he says they have gone their separate ways, which has come as a real surprise to everyone," an unnamed source, reportedly, told The Sun. "Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson were very easygoing and always seemed really happy together," an unidentified tipster close to the situation, allegedly, claimed, hinting that even the people surrounding the Coldplay singer and Jamie Dornan's on-screen partner are surprised about the split news.
While these claims could be true, it should be noted that neither the Everglow singer nor Jamie's leading lady in the Fifty Shades trilogy has confirmed anything as of yet. Hence, everything should be taken with a grain of salt. For now, stay tuned to Business Times for the latest news and update about Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson!
