Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie Director Confirmed

Fifty Shades Of Grey movie news! Sam Taylor-Johnson has been announced as the director of the most anticipated film ever. EL James, the author of Fifty Shades Of Grey, the racy novel that charts a BDSM-themed relationship between student Ana Steele and businessman Christian Grey, announced the news via Twitter, last night.

EL┬áJames wrote: “I’m delighted & thrilled to let you guys know that Sam Taylor-Johnson has agreed to direct the film of Fifty Shades Of Grey.”

The award-winning director might be known for her serious directorial works like Nowhere Boy, but Sam Taylor-Johnson is apparently thrilled to be taking on the new raunchy project. “I am excited to be charged with the evolution of Fifty Shades Of Grey from page to screen,” Sam said. “For the legions of fans, I want to say that I will honour the power of Erika’s book and the characters of Christian and Anastasia. They are under my skin, too.”

Who knew she’d be such a fan? We are mega excited to see what Sam will come up with, but the LOOK office is rife with speculation over who will play the sexy couple. Arrow star Stephen Amell, Channing Tatum,Emma Watson, Allison Williams and Mila Kunis are among the host of names to have been linked to the movie. Who knows, maybe she’ll cast hubby Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Christian? Now, that’s a thought…
