The sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey is currently being held up by negotiations with the source material's author E.L. James, who wants to write the screenplay to Fifty Shades Darker herself. However, that didn't stop "Saturday Night Live" from hypothesizing what might happen with Christian Grey's playroom in the sequel. The film's star Dakota Johnson hosted the late night sketch show over the weekend, but this sketch ended up getting cut for time. But thankfully, it's been posted online for us to enjoy. It's actually better than most of the sketches that aired for that episode, so I'm wondering why it ended up cut. Watch!
Here's the unaired "Saturday Night Live" sketch for Fifty Shades Darker from YouTube:
Fifty Shades of Grey is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) and written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks), based on E.L. James' very popular, best-selling novel. The story follows an impending college graduate named Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), who strikes up an S&M romance with successful young entrepreneur Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), the physical and emotional dominant to her submissive personality. The cast also features Luke Grimes as Grey's brother, Victor Rasuk as Steele's close friend, and Jennifer Ehle as her mother. Focus Features and Universal Pictures have the film in theaters right now.
