'Fifty Shades of Grey' Producer Dana Brunetti Opens Up About Dakota Johnson & Jamie Dornan Salary Rumors
There has been a lot of speculation lately about Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan‘s salary requests for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, and now producer Dana Brunetti is throwing his two cents in – figuratively, of course.
The 41-year-old famed producer opened up about the starring duo wanting big raises.
“Look, when I was starting out and had to cut my teeth and build my résumé to get in, I had to basically work for free on a lot of things. I still take reductions in my fees for the opportunities to do certain things,” Dana told THR. “So I’m not going to cry for anybody who wants to be in this business just because a thing they were involved in did very well and they didn’t get paid [a lot]. That’s not the deal that you made. If it was, I’d have more than a couple Ferraris because all the money my films have made is f—ing insane. You’ve got to start somewhere.”
As for whether Sam Taylor-Johnson will be back as director, Dana said, “No idea. We literally have no idea what we’re going to do. I have not even met with the studio or anybody yet about the second film.”
