We're now one step closer to seeing Fifty Shades of Grey's Christian and Ana on the big screen—moments ago, the word came down that Sam Taylor-Johnson has been chosen to direct the filmed version of E.L. James's Fifty Shades Of Grey.
One of the producers commented:
Sam’s unique ability to gracefully showcase complex relationships dealing with love, emotion and sexual chemistry make her the ideal director to bring Christian and Anastasia’s relationship to life...E.L. James’ characters and vivid storytelling require a director who is willing to take risks and push the envelope where needed, and Sam is a natural fit.
Like James and the screenwriter, Taylor-Johnson is a British woman. Do you think that perspective will affect the resulting movie?
