Reports: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' leaves Vancouver for Miami

Media outlets reported on Monday that filming of the blockbuster film (to be) Fifty Shades of Grey has been stopped in Vancouver – for good – and moved to Miami.

Poor weather was cited as the reason for the filming move, although the movie's re-location to Florida is still pending confirmation from the Fifty Shades crew and the Miami Film Office, reports GlobalNews.ca.

The film stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson and is based on E.L. James's wildly successful series of three novels.

Monday's news was first reported by Spanish site EFE and then by Yahoo news property The West Australian.

The Aussie site only quoted unnamed production company representatives, who said, "The downtown Miami skyline looks a lot like downtown Vancouver."

Fifty Shades had been scheduled to shoot in Vancouver until February. The film isn't schedule to be released until February, 2015, and reports say the book's trilogy is being condensed into one movie.

In December, the actors were seen shooting the film in Vancouver, together for a scene in Gastown and then at UBC's campus, which was transformed into Washington State for the film.

Author E.L. James is reportedly still in Vancouver.
