But does Taylor-Johnson have the ability to bring Christian and Anastasia's steamy and erotic relationship off the page and onto the screen? Producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti know she has the chops to direct this much anticipated film!

"Sam's unique ability to gracefully showcase complex relationships dealing with love, emotion and sexual chemistry make her the ideal director to bring Christian and Anastasia's relationship to life,"  De Luca said in a statement. 

"E L James' characters and vivid storytelling require a director who is willing to take risks and push the envelope where needed and Sam is a natural fit."

But who will play the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele? We want to know who you think has what it takes!

The names that keep coming up for Christian Grey include: Ian Somerhalder, Henry Cavill, Alexander Skarsgard, Stephen Arnell and Matt Bomer.
