You crazy chicks loved that ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ film, the proof is in the numbers. So you’ll be delighted to know you can begin your countdown to the next instalment of the erotic franchise, with release dates for the two sequels announced.

Unfortunately, you have to wait nearly two years for ‘Fifty Shades Darker’, which will be released February 10th 2017. The final film in the trilogy, ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ will follow in February 2018. Sorry!

In other news, with Sam Taylor-Johnson out of the picture, author E.L James has handpicked the man to write the screenplay for ‘Fifty Shades Darker’. Niall Leonard, James’ husband no less, will pen the script for the 2017 sequel. What a coincidence.
