Perfect casting? Kim Basinger is set to play Seattle billionaire Christian Grey’s “Mrs. Robinson” in Fifty Shades Darker, which starts filming in Vancouver in mid-February. Elena Lincoln is the older woman who seduced Christian as a teen and introduced him to BDSM, making him the screwed-up man he is today. Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson) meets Elena at a masquerade ball at the Grey family residence and the two women become instant enemies. Ana because she finds it disgusting what Elena did to a 15-year-old. And Elena because she realizes that Ana is not another of Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan)’s submissives but someone he loves.

Kim Basinger won an Oscar 18 years ago for her role as a Veronica Lake-lookalike prostitute in the noir film L.A. Confidential
