Those in the grip of Fifty Shades of Grey fever, be warned, for there are another two bouts set to come.

Director Sam Taylor-Johnson has reportedly confirmed that two sequels are in the pipeline, meaning yet more shades of the nation's new favourite colour.

EL James' bestselling erotic novel trilogy continues with Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, both of which look set to get the big screen treatment. Johnson announced the news at a fan event at New York's Seigfeld Theatre, according to Cosmopolitan.

Lead stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson were both in attendance ahead of the film opening this coming Friday, just in time for Valentine's Day.


Follow-up movies seem somewhat inevitable after the huge hype surrounding the first one.

Cinema chain Vue revealed earlier this week that its UK venues have already taken more than £1.3 million in advance ticket sales.

Fifty Shades of Grey has been given an 18 certificate for "strong sex and sado-masochistic practices"

Dornan, who plays playboy billionaire Christian Grey, has revealed how he researched the role by visiting a sex dungeon to learn about kinky fetishes. He added that there will be no full-frontal male nudity in the movie meaning viewers will not be seeing his "todger".

Universal has said there is no official confirmation of Fifty Shades sequels as of yet.
