Fifty Shades Darker is an upcoming American erotic romantic drama film directed by James Foley and written by Niall Leonard, based on a novel of same name by British author E. L. James. It is the second film in the Fifty Shades film series, and a sequel to 2015 film Fifty Shades of Grey.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker, the second chapter based on the worldwide bestselling “Fifty Shades” phenomenon. Expanding upon events set in motion in 2015’s blockbuster film, the new installment arrives for Valentine’s Day and invites you to slip into something a shade darker. When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.
