Rumor: Will Fifty Shades of Grey Be Only One Movie?

Fifty Shades of Grey's Christian and AnaRumors are circulating that big-screen adaptation of E.L. James's Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy will be consolidated into just one film. The production has moved to Miami to film scenes that don't take place until the third book, and several reports mention the producers making a statement that there will be just one Fifty Shades of Grey movie, rather than three.

While it's easy to say the decision was made because the series itself drags on too long, the prospect of making a lot of money usually trumps artistic concerns. So if it's true, why do you think the producers are making this decision so early in the production process? Do you think the movie might be better if it were condensed?

I thought the books were so poorly written, that it would be hard to find enough material for a single movie, let alone a trilogy.

One movie. Yes please. Why did I think they were doing that all along? Maybe because I thought Fifty was one book until I got ot the end. Great idea, all that extra book 2 & 3 stuff could def be put into one movie. The story is about the 2 main characters anyway IMO.

Well, I liked the books. Very much. I think one movie is a really good idea. I'd much rather have just one and for it to leave me wanting 'more', than for it to be like "Twilight" and when done, thinking, "Thank God that's finally over with."

This is so wrong. Production has not moved to Miami. They are filming today in a studio in Vancouver. No one on the production team has indicated anything other than 3 films. Do you think they could possibly change production in the middle and pick up and move? Would they have several scripts available? Why perpetuate lies?

Didn't read the books and will not see the movie. I suspect the producers are not sure they will make money. There are so many better books out there.

Nope! E.L. James replied to a follower of hers on Twitter that there won't be only one movie! :D

Hollywood will try to turn anything into a trilogy.
