'Fifty Shades Darker' Could Be Much More Explicit Than the First Film

It was bound to happen. As Anastasia Steele became more comfortable with Christian Grey's fantasies and fetishes and began to explore her own true feelings about the BDSM lifestyle, the Fifty Shades of Grey couple's sex life was naturally going to become even hotter. But does that mean Fifty Shades Darker is going to be even more explicit and racier than the first film? Some critics believe it might -- and are beginning to question how far the movie's writers can take the material.


Despite the secrecy surrounding the casting of certain roles (as well as the identity of the film's director, assuming one has even been chosen yet), shooting for the sequel is slated to begin after the new year, and fans are wondering what to expect from the second movie in the trilogy. In Fifty Shades Darker, Ana is no longer shocked by Christian's sexual desires, has had time to process and even accept them, and is finding that she actually enjoys the spanking and sweet torture more than she thought she would. 

But that doesn't mean all of the scenes in the book, including a few that give us major insight into the characters, are appropriate — especially if producers wish to score an "R" rating. One scandalous scene that might not make it to the set involves Christian telling Ana he likes to "whip little brown-haired girls like you because you all look like the crack wh**e -- my birth mother."

Well, now. This line alone speaks volumes about Christian and his motivations in choosing Anastasia and associating pain with love, but I'm guessing writers will tone it down in order to appeal to fans, who are probably digging the idea of a romantic love affair (complete with nudity) without too much of the super-kinky stuff.

On the other hand, writer EL James expressed her desire to keep Fifty Shades of Grey as close to the original novel as possible so that she wouldn't disappoint fans, so it's anybody's guess.
