Fifty Shades Cast Filming In Nice During Terror Attack Are 'Safe'
The cast and crew of ‘Fifty Shades of Darker’, who are currently filming just outside Nice, are all 'safe and sound’, the movie’s producer has confirmed, following last night’s terrorist attack.
Crew had wrapped for the day on location before the attack took place, in which a lone terrorist drove a truck at speed through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day, killing 84 people, seriously injuring 18, with 54 children being admitted to hospital.

Producer Dana Brunetti wrote on his Facebook page: “Production has confirmed that everyone working on location in the south of France is okay.
“Everyone has been accounted for and is safe and sound.
“Thanks for everyone’s messages and concerns. Another sad day for France and the world.”
It’s thought that filming could be delayed or even suspended following the attack.
Author of the 'Fifty Shades’ books E.L. James tweeted: “Just heard about the horrendous events in Nice. Appalling. Thoughts are with the families of the dead and injured.”
Meanwhile, one of the stars of the movie, Eloise Mumford, posted to Instagram:
