Sam Taylor-Wood to direct Fifty Shades of GreyIt’s one of the most eagerly anticipated films ever so we’re excited to find out that Sam Taylor-Wood has signed on to direct Fifty Shades of Grey the movie.

With the announcement being made today that Sam, who directed Nowhere Boy, is taking on directorial duties we’re one step closer to finding out who will play the notorious Christian Grey.

According to reports Sam, who is married to Kick Ass star Aaron Johnson, had to beat off some pretty stiff competition to land the role including Anna Karenina director Joe Wright and even Angelina Jolie.

Sam, 46, said: ‘For the legions of fans, I want to say that I will honour the power of Erika’s book and the characters of Christian and Anastasia. They are under my skin too.’

At the moment there’s no word on who will star in the adaption of the book by E L James but now Sam has signed on the dotted line it wont be long until the actors start following suit.

We cannot wait!
