Will there be a supplement to Fifty Shades of Grey?
April 7, 2015 - Fifty Shades of Grey
The much-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey film got trashed by critics, though rode a call of moviegoer oddity all a approach to a bank of laughs. The film has done $566 million worldwide opposite a bill of $40 million, that is a success even by notoriously bizarre and untrustworthy Hollywood bookkeeping standards. (The film was also a success by celebration diversion standards, that competence be partial of a reason for a box bureau gross.)
And, in this day of long-term film deals and mixed spin-off possibilities, we consider a whole expel and organisation of a initial film would be sealed adult for a sequels, right? But a prolongation of a initial film, that was uneasy from a start, has carried over into any intensity second-movie territory.
First came reports that star Jamie Dornan had no interest in entrance behind to play Christian Grey. Those reports have given been refuted, though a fact that clearly everybody was doubt he and co-star Dakota Johnson’s chemistry gave fuel to that rumor’s fire. Then came a news that executive Sam-Taylor Johnson–with whom a movie’s stars and E. L. James, a book’s author, were pronounced to have clashed–would many really not helm any film sequel. And, lest anyone mistake her, Johnson done a simple, approach matter confirming her exit:
While we will not be returning to approach a sequels, we wish zero though success to whosoever takes on a sparkling hurdles of films dual and three. Directing Fifty Shades of Grey has been an heated and implausible tour for that we am hugely grateful. we have Universal to appreciate for that. we fake tighten and durability relations with a cast, producers and organisation and many especially, with Dakota and Jamie.
Now, writer Dana Brunetti has lifted eyebrows with his acknowledgment that he has no thought when or if a supplement will happen, and that a studio hasn’t done any decisions during all on it–which means a chances that we’ll see Fifty Shades Darker on Valentine’s Day 2016 are really bad indeed:
We literally have no thought what we’re going to do. we have not even met with a studio or anybody nonetheless about a second film. We always said, “Let’s get this initial one out and expelled and afterwards we’ll regroup and figure out what we’re going to do on a next.” That hasn’t happened yet. So, [James] hasn’t been behind to a States [from her home in London] yet. we haven’t been into a studio yet….People are always going to disagree, though eventually if we don’t agree, afterwards a film doesn’t get finished and expelled or it ends adult being positively terrible since somebody says, “It’s my approach or a highway.” And that never works.
In addition, James–who insiders contend was a source of most of a play that overshadowed a initial film’s production–wants an even bigger purpose in crafting a book for Fifty Shades Darker. And Dornan and Johnson both wish large raises. So, while there will roughly positively be a Fifty Shades sequel–it’s done approach too most income for a studio to pass–it looks like a second film will sojourn trapped in a subjugation closet for during slightest a time being.
