Meet the Director of Fifty Shades of Grey
I think it's been quite a while since I last heard of a Fifty Shades news. All I've been seeing are casts predictions for Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. But now, after much speculation, the powers that be finally decided to put Sam Taylor-Johnson at the helm of the much anticipated film (for fans -atleast).
Honestly, I don't know Ms Taylor-Johnson so I hopped on to her IMDB page to see if there's any movie of her that I've already seen. But apparently, none. Her directing credits include 5 films only that include Nowhere Boy and 4 short films. Wow, can I say she's very lucky? As far as I know, this is a hot job as of the moment. No wonder a lot of people were surprised at the choice.
Producer Mike DeLuca has this to say for Ms Taylor-Johnson, "Sam’s unique ability to gracefully showcase complex relationships dealing with love, emotion and sexual chemistry make her the ideal director to bring Christian and Anastasia’s relationship to life. E.L. James’ characters and vivid storytelling require a director who is willing to take risks and push the envelope where needed, and Sam is a natural fit."
On another note, Ms Taylor-Johnson is married to actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson who's 23 years her junior. Now, I know her husband. He's the Kick-Ass guy. =)
Congratulations and good luck to Ms Taylor-Johnson!
