VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Production has begun in Canada on the film adaptation of the erotic bestseller "Fifty Shades of Grey," producer Dana Brunetti announced via Twitter.

"Here we go," Brunetti tweeted Sunday, announcing the start of principal photography on the film in Vancouver, B.C.

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are to star in the eagerly awaited big-screen adaptation of E.L. James' novel, which is set for release Feb. 13, 2015.

Dornan replaced Charlie Hunnam, who dropped out of the project shortly after accepting the role so he could focus on his TV series "Sons of Anarchy."
