Filming for Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan's Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed has wrapped up in Vancouver. EL James, the author of the bestselling novels by the same name and the producer of the BDSM-themed movie adaptation, shared the news on her Instagram account while raving about James Foley's direction.
"And that's a wrap Vancouver," she announced with an image of her and Foley. "Thank you to the most fantastic crew and production team. You are all amazing." A few scenes will be filmed in Paris, which will feature Dakota and Dornan.
The first movie of the erotic trilogy became a blockbuster for Universal Pictures but critics panned it for lack of storytelling and seductive chemistry between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author James had creative differences during the first movie after which the former left the franchise.
But it appears that now the atmosphere on the set is serene as James keeps praising Foley for his efforts in directing the two movies in the three-part seductive tale of the billionaire Grey and his love interest Ana.
The movie producers had previously informed that certain sequences for the Fifty Shades trilogy will be shot in Paris "within the first six months". Now that they have finished their schedule in the Canadian city, it is possible they will move to the romantic destination, perhaps to film the honeymoon sequence of the just-marries couple Christian and Ana.
Earlier, James had shared an image of the Red Room of Pain, teasing some sensuous scenes ahead in the second movie of the series. The news sparked hope among fans for a teaser or trailer in the coming month as Fifty Shades Darker is set to premiere in February 2017.
