“Fifty Shades of Grey” Director Regrets Making the Film- Checkout Details On Filming Conflict

In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, Director Sam Taylor-Johnson explained what she went through while working on Fifty Shades of Grey, especially working with producer E.L. James in the film’s creativity. She said she would simply turn the opportunity down if given again:

“With the benefit of hindsight would I go through it again? Of course I wouldn’t. I’d be mad. It was a struggle and there were lots of onset tête-à-têtes, with me trying to bat it into the [right] place. I like everyone — and I get really confused when they don’t like me. I was so confused by E.L. James. I don’t understand when I can’t navigate a person, when there’s no synergy.”

She added:

“Two different creative visions. Her vision versus mine, and they were polar opposite. Every scene was fought over. It was tough. It was like wading uphill through sticky tar. Her thing was, ‘This is what the fans expect.’ I’d be like, ‘Well, let’s try and hit those marks but create a new universe at the same time.’
