Updated: July 4th. Fifty Shades has wrapped in Vancouver. Director James Foley and Erika Leonard (E. L. James).

London’s Erika Leonard (E. L. James) has been in Vancouver for five months producing two Fifty Shades sequels — Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed — adapted from her trilogy of novels.
