'Fifty Shades Darker' Movie Plot Might Be Much Different Than the Book

It seems that Fifty Shades Darker may deviate from the book a lot more than expected. Reports from insiders say that it's all an effort to keep fans on their toes with more suspense, mystery, and intrigue all while still offering a good spank. We have theories.


One clue that something is very different is the fact that behind-the-scenes filming photos show Anastasia Steele (played by Dakota Johnson) wearing not only an engagement ring, but a wedding band, gifted to her by Christian Grey (played by Jamie Dornan). This had led some to believe that holy union of Ana and Christian happened sooner than it does in the books.

But I'm not entirely convinced of that. Maybe director James Foley wanted to film some scenes from Darker and Fifty Shades Freed at the same time. They are filming these two back-to-back, but perhaps he wanted to take advantage of the light, the moment, the whatever it may have been, to film more than what was needed for just Darker.

Or ... yeah ... maybe they get hitched earlier and screenplay writer Niall Leonard pulled a fast one on the die-hard book fans. Though I'd venture to bet that even the novel's fans (and EL James) want something new and unexpected in the movie.

So it could be just a production schedule thing, or the engagement and wedding date have been pushed up. What we do know is this: We must wait to see! All of which is just adding more anticipation for the film.
