The Fifty Shades Of Grey film franchise has been hit with yet MORE headline-spinning rumours, with reports now claiming that all three of E L James‘ bestselling erotic novels will be condensed down into one single movie. What?!
But before you start sobbing at the thought of being deprived of precious Jamie Dornan screen-time, don’t fret – we can now reveal that these rumours are totally not true.
Earlier this week, it was claimed that Irish hotty Jamie and his fellow lead Dakota Johnson were about to jet off to sunny Tenerife to film the honeymoon scenes that don’t take place until the third book, fuelling rumours that cutbacks had been made and all three novels would be crammed into one Hollywood blockbuster.
But now, E L James herself has spoken up on Twitter to slam the whispers.
‘Only one movie!!! Is that true?’, one disappointed fan tweeted the writer earlier today. ‘No’, replied James.
Another fan then followed up with: ‘It’s really sad you have to keep answering this. #threebooksthreemovies’, to which the Fifty Shades creator replied: ‘Yes it is!!! I’m not answering it any more… Grrr…’
Well, that’s cleared that up then!
While the update does come as a relief, we’re still not overly pleased that the movie’s release date has been pushed back by six months to February 2015. After all that build-up, let’s hope Dornan and Jamie Jnr give us a Valentine’s Day to remember…
