Fifty shades of grey to go thriller

The sequel to hit movie Fifty Shades of Grey sounds like it’s going to be quite a ride, according to Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley.

Speaking at The Hollywood Reporter’s Power Lawyers breakfast, she described Fifty Shades Darker (Fifty Shades of Grey) as “more of a thriller”, as well as speaking about director Sam-Taylor Johnson’s exit from the franchise.

When asked about the rumoured tension between Taylor-Johnson and Fifty Shades author E.L. James, Langley replied: “For the record, the movie we ended up making is exactly the movie I wanted to make and that the studio wanted to make and that our director wanted to make.”

Langely also touched upon what James’ hubby Niall Leonard will bring to the second movie, stating: “He actually did a draft that wasn’t credited on the first movie, and he did a really good job.”

Fifty Shades Darker is due for release on February 10, 2017 – exactly two years after the first film exploded into cinemas.

The third and final flick, Fifty Shades Freed, will then follow on February 9, 2018 – with stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan set to return for both movies.
