"It's quite exciting," she said of teaming up with James Foley. "There was a moment of being afraid, because I didn't know what it was going to be like. I had an experience with Sam and then that all went away. Now I'm excited. I think James is a talented filmmaker. How often do you get to reconvene with the same people and have a different spin?," Dakota added. Fifty Shades Darker is yet to start its production. The franchise is the adaptation of author EL James' best-seller series of the same name. Her husband, Niall Leonard, writes the script with Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti and James tapped as producers.
