A new ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is coming! E.L. James, who wrote the epic trilogy that turned into a huge box office hit, has created a new version which will come out on June 18 — Christian’s birthday.
You can see Mr. Grey now! In case the three books weren’t enough, the Fifty Shades of Grey author has an amazing new idea that fans have been waiting for: the first book from Christian Grey’s perspective. E.L. James made the announcement on June 1, adding that fans have asked a ton for Grey’s POV, and now they’ll get it, giving her a chance to “return to my happy place.”
“Hello all. For those of you who have asked, Christian’s POV of #FSOG is published on 18th June for his birthday. It’s called GREY… I hope you enjoy it. #FiftyShades #Grey,” E.L. captioned an instagram post on June 1.
Her statement reads, “Christian is a complex character, and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story. It’s been a great pleasure to return to my happy place — writing, being with Christian and Ana in their universe, and working with the fantastic team at Vintage.”
The Fifty Shades trilogy (Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed) has became one of the most successful series so it’s no surprise that the author is looking to grow the franchise. Of course the real question now is if they’ll release another movie. However, June 18 is very soon so I think it’s safe to say they’ll finish the trilogy on screen first.
Are you excited about the new version, HollywoodLifers? Do you think it will be as good as the first? Let us know!
