'50 Shades Of Grey' Release Date Set For Aug. 1, 2014

"50 Shades of Grey" has a release date.

Producer Dana Brunetti announced on Thursday that the big-screen adaptation of E L James' beloved S&M novel will be out in theaters on Aug. 1, 2014. Sam Taylor-Johnson will direct "50 Shades of Grey" from a script written by Kelly Marcel.

"50 Shades of Grey" is the first in an expect trilogy of films; the source book focuses on Anastasia Steele and her sexual relationship with entrepreneur Christian Grey. The August release date is far from unexpected: Universal chairman Adam Fogelson suggested to THR in February that "50 Shades" would be ready for a summer 2014 release.
