Fifty Shades Of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson wants to quit the hit film franchise after clashing with writer EL James, it has been reported.

The film-maker, believed to have signed a contract tying her to a planned trilogy, has admitted her relationship with the novelist was “difficult”.

She said: ” We definitely fought – but they were creative fights and we would resolve them.

“We would have proper on-set barneys, and I’m not confrontational, but it was about finding a way between the two of us, satisfying her vision of what she’d written as well as my need to visualise this person on screen. But, you know, we got there.”

The big-screen adaptation of the erotic novel stars Jamie Dornan as suave businessman Christian Grey, who seduces college student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) into an S&M relationship.

It dominated cinemas at the weekend with ticket sales of more than £13.5 million since its release on Friday.

There are two more books in the series – Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.

A spokeswoman for Universal Pictures said: ” Universal has not yet announced anything pertaining to sequels.”
