FIFTY SHADES DARKER: New Book and Trailer

mv5bmtq5mjaynjy3nf5bml5banbnxkftztgwmjy5otawmdi-_v1_sy1000_cr006311000_al_E.L. James announced on Sept 10th that she is writing another of her “from Grey’s point of view books,” re-telling Fifty Shades Darker from Christian’s perspective, following her re-vamp of Fifty Shades of Grey with the same twist.

The news proceeded the release of the first trailer for the film Fifty Shades Darker, both events causing the trilogy to rise on Amazon (jumping from #1,520 to #226) and the first Christian point of view book, Grey, to jump from #843 to #378. That pales next to the 3.7 million views the trailer had already received on YouTube.

The trailer also prompted a storm of stories, such as those in the Los Angeles Times and USA Today.

Variety says that the second film as well as the upcoming third film of the trilogy (which will be shot back-to-back) will be directed by James Foley (Glengarry Glen Ross, House of Cards). He replaces Sam Taylor-Johnson with whom James clashed during the filming of the first movie.

The screenplays for the final two films will be written by E. L. James’ husband, Niall Leonard.
