It cannot be denied that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson gained so much more followings when they starred in the erotic-themed film series titled Fifty Shades. Due to its massive worldwide success, the franchise, also, made the real-life partners of Amelia Warner and Chris Martin two of the most bankable stars in Hollywood at the time. Now that the movie series is, finally, over, fans are wondering what Jamie and Dakota's recent activities could be.

Jamie, previously, revealed that Fifty Shades had opened a lot of doors for him, especially in his career as an actor. The former on-screen partner of Dakota had become a part of various productions after the erotic-themed film franchise concluded in 2018. Jamie portrayed roles in A Private War, My Dinner with Herve, Untogether, and Robinhood, which also starred Taron Egerton, Ben Mendelsohn, Jamie Foxx, Eve Hewson, and Tim Minchin.

Recently, it was announced that Jamie Dornan would be doing another film called Carmen. Reports have it that the imminent new film is a reimagined version of the classic French opera in a musical film. Aside from Dakota Johnson's former leading man, Mexican actress Melissa Barrera has, also, been signed up for the film. French dancer-choreographer Benjamin Millepied will be at the helm for the said movie while Dimitri Rassam would take the producer seat.

Joining the high-caliber lineup of people behind the camera are Oscar nominee Nicholas Britell and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz. The two would be writing the score and shooting draft of the screenplay, respectively, for the forthcoming Carmen movie. Jamie, Melissa, and the other cast are expected to start filming in October in Los Angeles, California.

Meanwhile, Dakota Johnson, for her part, is currently enjoying her romantic relationship with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. As a matter of fact, Gwyneth Paltrow has welcomed the Fifty Shades actress into the family. For starters, Chris is the father of Gwyneth's kids - Apple, 15, and Moses, 13.

Sources suggested that Gwyneth has tried her best to "integrate Dakota [Johnson] into family life." "It's very important to her to be on good terms with Chris's girlfriends. She's not at all threatened by Dakota and loves that Chris is happy - she's very secure about sex and relationships and is not competitive in that way," an insider revealed to People about the budding friendship of Jamie Dornan's former leading lady and Chris Martin's ex-partner.

Just last month, E! News predicted that Dakota and Chris Martin could announce their engagement very soon. "They are very much in love and happy," the entertainment outlet shared. However, up until now, neither of the two personalities has commented on these engagement rumors. Stay tuned to Business Times for the latest news and updates about Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
