The second film in the Fifty Shades Of Grey series - starring Co Down heartthrob Jamie Dornan - is set to shoot for several days in Paris as the movie industry rebounds after last year's terror attacks.

Fifty Shades Darker, also starring Dakota Johnson, is one of a number of titles set to film this year in the French capital after Islamic extremists killed 130 people there last November.

Dornan and Johnson will reprise their roles as student Anastasia Steele and domineering billionaire Christian Grey.

Stephane Martinet, deputy director of the Ile-de-France Film Commission, which covers the Paris region, told the Hollywood Reporter that the film industry had proven resilient in the wake of the devastating attacks.

"It seems there is some sort of resilience among the film industry. Producers, in particular from the US, voiced their support to us after the attacks and reinforced their willingness to pursue their projects," he said.

"They want to send a message."

Filming in Paris is expected to go on for several days "within the first six months of the year", according to the report.

Parts of the movie will also be shot in Vancouver, where Jamie was spotted in a restaurant last Sunday.

Earlier this week Dornan was named the second sexiest man in the world by Glamour magazine.

He was beaten by fellow Irish actor Aidan Turner (Poldark).
