The “Fifty Shades of Grey” film officially has a director! Sam Taylor-Johnson will direct the movie adaptation of the erotic novel by E.L. James.
“I am excited to be charged with the evolution of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ from page to screen,” Taylor-Johnson said in a statement. “For the legions of fans, I want to say that I will honor the power of Erika’s book and the characters of Christian and Anastasia. They are under my skin too.”
There has been a lot of speculation about the actors and actresses that are up for the starring roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, but there has been no official announcement on casting. Now that Taylor-Johnson is on board, some are speculating that her husband, actor Aaron Johnson, will take the lead role.
