It can be noted that the first instalment ended with Anastasia and Christian parting ways. In the next film, Ms. Steel e will find herself working for a publishing company. Jack Hyde is her boss, who may have some devious plans ahead. Around the same time, Christian's former dominant, Elena Lincoln, is going to appear in the storyline.
'Fifty Shades Darker' is slated for a Feb. 10, 2017 release and lead actors Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are set to reprise their roles, without the tutelage of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' director Sam Taylor-Johnson.
Niall Leonard has already been confirmed to write the sequel. Producer Michael De Luca even said, "Niall is an outstanding writer in his own right, with multiple established credits, and we are lucky to have him join Team Fifty."
