LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - "Fifty Shades of Grey" fans should get their inner goddesses ready -- it's about to get "Darker."

Both sequels to E.L. James' racy mega-seller "Fifty Shades of Grey" -- "Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed" -- are coming to film, said director Sam Taylor-Johnson. According to Cosmopolitan, Johnson made the announcement at a fan event at New York's Seigfeld Theatre with James and stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.

The news doesn't come as too much of a shock. The racy pic is tracking to open at US$60 million over its opening on Valentine's Day weekend, and US online ticketing site Fandango said it's the fastest-selling R-rated title in the site's 15-year history.

Universal, the studio handling Fifty Shades of Grey, said nothing official has been announced yet.

Fifty Shades of Grey comes out in Australia on Thursday. It's rated MA 15+.
