Sam Taylor-Johnson announced on Wednesday that she will not be returning to direct Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey. Sam told Us Weekly that "Directing Fifty Shades of Grey has been an intense and incredible journey for which I am hugely grateful. While I will not be returning to direct the sequels, I wish nothing but success to whosoever takes on the exciting challenges of films two and three." Before the film's February release, Sam revealed that it was "difficult" to work with the book's author, E L James, though it's clear there's no bad blood between Sam and the film's star, Jamie Dornan. The duo posed for an Instagram snap that Sam posted as news was released on Wednesday.
