Any expectation that the long-awaited big-screen adaptation of E.L.James best-selling book will merely be soft porn dressed up as multiplex mulch was somewhat scuppered when acclaimed art installation mogul and mighty fine film director Sam Taylor-Johnson (NOWHERE BOY) signed on the dotted line. Our own Seamus McGarvey is the man behind the camera, and early word from the man himself is that this movie will be more than just a one-night stand.
