The directors of the Universal movie studio have reduced to one name the list of potential directors of the movie "Fifty Shades Darker", which will be the sequel to the erotic melodrama "Fifty Shades of Gray".
According to Deadline, citing its sources, the most likely candidate was James Foley, who previously worked on a series of popular TV series, including "Hannibal", "House of Cards" and others.
It is particularly emphasized that negotiations with the director have not yet begun, but the studio plans to start them in the near future. Recall that while working on the movie "Fifty Shades of Gray", director Sam Taylor-Johnson had a production conflict with the author of the literary source, E.L. James, who tried to interfere with the creative process. After the premiere, it became known that the writer demanded full control over the movieing of the sequel. As a result, she entrusted the script for the sequel to her husband, Niall Leonard.
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan will play the main roles again. As previously reported, after the success of the first movie adaptation, the actors achieved a significant increase in their salaries. "Fifty Shades of Gray" earned over $ 500 million worldwide.
