Rita Ora is the latest addition to the Fifty Shades Of Grey film cast.

The singer, 23, tweeted that she will play Mia, the adopted younger sister of main character Christian Grey.

Filming started in Vancouver and it is expected to be released in 2015. The Fifty Shades trilogy, by author EL James, has sold more than 70 million copies around the world.
