Fifty Shades of Grey just became more of a love story.
Universal Pictures has tapped Fifty Shades author E.L. James' husband, Niall Leonard, to write the screenplay for Fifty Shades Darker, the follow-up to the blockbuster.
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Fifty Shades of Grey producer Michael De Luca said, "Niall is an outstanding writer in his own right, with multiple established credits, and we are lucky to have him join Team Fifty."
Fifty Shades of Grey chronicles the intense romance between S&M- loving businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and timid college student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson).
The film enticed audiences with racy sex scenes, earning an impressive $568 million at the worldwide box office.
Leonard will have a lot to live up to for the second film, and hopefully, he'll meet his wife's expectations!
