Get excited, Fifty Shades of Grey fans! There could be a fourth movie coming, and at least one cast member is definitely on board with reprising her role. Marcia Gay Harden said she's be game to playing Christian Grey's mom once again, should a fourth movie ever be made.


The second movie of the trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker, came out just last month, and Fifty Shades Freed is due in 2018. It's already done filming, but fans have been wondering if there will be a fourth installment, based on EL James's 2015 novel Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian.

As the title suggests, it retells the first story from Christian's perspective, instead of Ana's, as in the original. Which means that the role of his mom, played by Harden, might require more time on screen, as she was the doctor who saved his life as an abandoned tot of the infamous "crack whore."

The Academy Award winner told People magazine that she'd be down with bringing the character to life once again. "I'm trying to now think about, 'What would Christian's point of view be. Would mom even be in it?'" she revealed.

Harden continued, "She rescued him. She was a doctor, she rescued him ... I don't know. Would I be in it? Yeah, sure. I'm game."

She also confessed that she loves being "Mama Grey" to the fans, saying, "The fan base is actually really incredible. They tweet me the most wonderful things all the time. It's not, you know, it's not bizarrely sexual."

She does definitely bring a wholesome element into the otherwise raunchy story -- and we love her for it. No official word on whether there will ever be a fourth movie, but if there is, we're thrilled at least one major player is on board. Now let's just get Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, and we'll be all set.
