Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson have returned to Vancouver for reshoot of their upcoming steamy flick, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Production on the highly anticipated film adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic literature began in early December 2013 and ended late-February 2014. The plot follows Anastasia Steele (Johnson), a young college student, who becomes involved with sexy billionaire Christian Grey (Dornan) and his secret affinity for BDSM.

The movie is filmed in Vancouver, although the city does not have a starring role as it substitutes for rainy Seattle.

32-year-old Dornan was seen on Saturday arriving with his wife at Vancouver International Airport after a flight from London. On Monday, production began to reshoot scenes filmed at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Bentall 3 office tower, and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre at the University of British Columbia campus.

Fifty Shades of Grey is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. Two versions of the film are set for a February 13, 2015 (Valentine’s Day) theatric release: one version for mainstream audiences and a second longer version that will include NSFW scenes.

A trailer for the film was released in the summer, which included a new rendition of Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love.”
