Sam Taylor-Johnson to Direct Fifty Shades of Grey Movie

Fifty Shades of Grey Gets a Director

Christian Grey's Hollywood future is becoming a reality: author E.L. James announced on Twitter that Sam Taylor-Johnson will direct Fifty Shades of Grey, the adaptation of James' steamy novel. British director Taylor-Johnson (who is married to actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is best known for the young John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy, and it sounds like the female filmmaker is a fan of the book. In a statement, Taylor-Johnson said, "I am excited to be charged with the evolution of Fifty Shades of Grey from page to screen. 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." As for casting, we'll still have to wait — but we have plenty of suggestions!
