Pop singer Rita Ora has taken a major role in the film adaptation of bestselling erotic novel Fifty Shades Of Grey.

London-based Ora will appear as Mia Grey, sister of the story's protagonist, described in the book as tall and curvaceous with a sleek bob haircut. Ora confirmed the news herself via a tweet, below.




The movie, currently scheduled for release on February 13, 2015, is presently being filmed in Vancouver, Canada according to The Express. Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, it stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in the lead roles, the latter having replaced British actor Charlie Hunnam, who controversially quit the project in October.

Ora has a handful of acting credits to her name, having appeared in British TV series The Brief and film Spivs nine years ago. This year, she appeared in US TV series 90210 and uncredited in Fast & Furious 6, according to IMDB.
