Update: Jamie Dornan on set Monday. And Fifty Shades denied permission for overnight shoot on Friday.

Ready for another week of Fifty Shades Darker filming in Gastown? In the sequel, Seattle-billionaire-with-singular-tastes Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) tries to win back the-girl-who-said-No Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson). Production started Tuesday, February 16th at its Seattle Independent Press (SIP) set, where Ana Steele gets a  new job as assistant to SIP publisher and Christian Grey rival Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson). Who is Hyde? He and Christian were troubled boys together in the same orphanage until the wealthy Grey family adopted Christian not Jack. Hyde makes good but not at the same level as Christian and takes out his frustrations on Ana — sexually harassing her.

Filming at SIP continued last week for three days with a final one scheduled for tomorrow.
