Last week, Fifty Shades author E.L. James announced a spinoff novel Grey, which retells the original story from the perspective of kinky billionaire Christian Grey!
Since the first film of the franchise made monumental success at the box office, Universal could very well adapt Grey for the big screen along in a fourth installment of the franchise!
But if the studio greenlights a film adaptation to follow the spinoff novel, it may be without the series' two lead actors!

Even though Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are signed on to star in three Fifty Shades films, they are NOT contractually obligated to star in a spinoff — neither actor even knew that Grey was in development!
The studio hasn't revealed its plans for developing the spinoff novel for the big screen just yet, but we're sure if the other two films are as successful as the first installment then Universal will do anything they can to coax Johnson and Dornan to return for a fourth film!
The second and third film of James's trilogy already have release dates. Fifty Shades Darker is slated for Feb 10, 2017 and Fifty Shades Freed is due out Feb 9, 2018!
