‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Director: Both Sequels to Be Made Into Films

Fifty Shades of Grey” fans should get their inner goddesses ready — it’s about to get “Darker.”

Both sequels to E.L. James’ racy mega-seller “Fifty Shades of Grey” — “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed” — are coming to film, said director Sam Taylor-Johnson. According to Cosmopolitan, Johnson made the announcement at a fan event at New York’s Seigfeld Theatre with James and stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.

The news doesn’t come as too much of a shock. The racy pic is tracking to open at $60 million over its opening on Valentine’s Day weekend, and online ticketing site Fandango said it’s the fastest-selling R-rated title in the site’s 15-year history.

Universal, the studio handling “Fifty Shades of Grey,” said nothing official has been announced yet.
