Fifty Shades of Grey gets release date
Story by Jack Foley
THE keenly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie is to be released in US cinemas on August 1, 2014.
Directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson from a script by Kelly Marcel, the film has yet to confirm either of its two leads but confidence is so high in its appeal that distributors have opted for a late summer release – at the end of the blockbuster season.
Focus will release the film in America, with a world-wide release to follow from Universal Pictures International.
Work is stepping up on getting the components in place for a summer 2014 release as Universal chairman Adam Fogelson has previously gone on the record as stating he wanted the film ready by then.
