’50 Shades Darker’ will be expelled in 2017

While many audiences would have described 2015’s smash hit 50 Shades of Grey as thrilling, a studio exec promises that a supplement will be “more of a thriller.”

During an interview Wednesday with a Hollywood Reporter, Universal Pictures authority Donna Langley pronounced 50 Shades Darker will be “more of a thriller” than a initial installment, and she also spoke about rumors of tragedy between author E.L. James, a studio and executive Sam Taylor-Johnson. Neither Taylor-Johnson nor a screenwriter of a initial film will be returning for a second; James has enlisted her husband, Niall Leonard, to write a script. Filming of both films will start in Vancouver subsequent summer.

But Langley said, “For a record, a film we finished adult creation is accurately a film we wanted to make and that a studio wanted to make and that a executive wanted to make.”

50 Shades Darker is set to be expelled on Feb 19, 2017.
