POLLING: FIFTY SHADES DARKER Expected to Film Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson) & Others in Gastown From Mid-February For 3 Weeks


Updated with revised dates:

Are you ready for more Fifty Shades in Vancouver? Look for Seattle-billionaire-with-singular-tastes Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and the-girl-who-said-No Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) around town for about five months, filming sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.

Fifty Shades Darker, codename Further Adventures of Max & Banks 2, is expected to film scenes of Ana Steele (Johnson) and others in Gastown starting in mid-February until March 8th. Production distributed a polling letter in the neighbourhood and a small crew is at work building a set inside 110 East Cordova. Could these be the future offices of Seattle Independent Publishing (SIP) where Ana will work as an assistant to Jack Hyde?  We’ll have to wait and see.

110 East Cordova. Production plans to shoot interiors here from February 16th to 24th as well as February 29th.

And then move a block north to the 120 Powell Street lofts used as Ana Steele’s Seattle apartment in Fifty Shades of Grey — for three days of filming with apartment [exteriors overnight on Friday. March 4th] and interiors on [Tuesday, March 8th and Wednesday, March 9th], according to another polling letter. Update: {The City of Vancouver denied Fifty Shades permission to film overnight on Friday, March 4th, so these dates will change.}

The first film in the  trilogy, Fifty Shades of Grey, grossed more than half a billion dollars worldwide on an estimated budget of $40 million. James Foley will direct the back-to-back productions based on scripts by Niall Leonard, husband to the erotic trilogy’s author E.L. James.

Filming is expected to start February 16th and wrap July 12th (dates subject to change) according to the Directors Guild of Canada-BC list. Production code is Further Adventures of Max & Banks 2 & 3.

Fifty Shades Darker will be in theatres on February 16, 2017 and Fifty Shades Freed opens a year later on  February 9, 2018.

    I’ve read the books a few times and loved the first movie. Looking forward to the next one. To bad we have to wait so long for the next one.

  2. Brownstar says:

    110 Cordova is my old office, such a shame it’s being wasted on this garbage.

    Yay! I can’t wait for the first proper set photos!
