'Fifty Shades' Cast and Crew Safe After Attack in Nice: 'Everyone Has Been Accounted For'
By Latifah Muhammad
The cast and crew of Fifty Shades are "safe and sound" after the terror attack in Nice, France, that left at least 84 dead and more than 200 injured on Thursday.
"Production has confirmed that everyone working on location in the south of France is okay," Dana Brunetti, the film's producer, wrote in a Facebook post following the tragedy. "Everyone has been accounted for and is safe and sound. Thanks for everyone's message and concerns. Another sad day for France and the world."
The sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, which stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, has been shooting in the French Rivera for the last few weeks. Production was filming about 25 minutes outside the city of Nice, and had reportedly wrapped for the day before the attack took place.
Fifty Shades author EL James, who lives in London, took to Twitter on Thursday to speak on the attack. "Just heard about the horrendous event in Nice. Appalling," she wrote. "Thoughts are with the families of the dead and injured."
James also retweeted Brunetti's Facebook post and sent out a sweet message to the Fifty Shades team on Friday: "I'm so blessed with the crew and production team on these movies."
