The first movie from Fifty Shades Trilogy will not be out until February 2015 but according to inside reports, Universal Studios are so convinced of box office success that they are already going ahead for the Fifty Shades sequel. Fifty Shades of Grey movie based on E.L. James best selling erotic novel of the same name wrapped shooting back in February with Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson who plays the role of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele respectively
Since the Fifty Shades Trilogy has a huge fan following, Universal Studios sees no reason why they shouldn’t plan with the second movie based on the book “Fifty Shades Darker” seeing as fans are already begging for the trailers for the first book “Fifty Shades of Grey” which is set to hit the theaters next year on Valentine’s Day.
A site called Tracking Board has reported that the Universal Studio is “actively moving ahead” with Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey. The first movie is expected to make a lot of money with an estimated budget of $40 million. Currently more than 100 million copies of Fifty Shades Trilogy have been sold. The first book was the fastest selling paper back of all time. So, that means if 11% of the people who have bought the book go to see the movie, then it will reach the $60 million mark. The site has also reported that “Fifty Shades of Darker” is currently an open writing assignment which means they are looking for new writers. Kelly Marcel, Patrick Marber and Mark Bomber wrote the screenplay for Fifty Shades of Grey, but now it looks like Universal wants to start the sequel with fresh talents.
None of the cast has officially signed on for the sequel and director Sam Taylor-Johnson is not certain either. Michael De and Dana Brunetti will still be producing the sequel and Kristin Lowe will be back as an executive. Hopefully Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson will be back as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The two leads have already gained a huge fan following among the fifty Shades fans. It would be wrong to introduce another Ana and Christian for the sequel. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
Finally Fifty Shades of Grey trailer has a release date and fans won’t have to wait until September. On July 9 E.L. James announced via Twitter that the fans will get the first glimpse of the sexy Christian Grey and the shy Anastasia Steele on 24th July. James tweeted “Hold on to your hats folks. You’ll get your first look at the FSoG movie trailer on July 24. I’ve had a sneak peek and WOW! #WeAimToPlease,” It’s not clear until now if the entire trailer will be released or if it’s only going to be a short preview, but still anything is better than nothing.
