‘Fifty Shades’ Sequels Filming Halted Following France Attack? When Will It Resume?

The cast and crew of “Fifty Shades” were in Nice, France when the terrorist attack took place on Bastille Day. A truck plowed through the crowd that killed at least 84 people and injured hundreds.

“Fifty Shades” was on location at a medieval castle in Nice, but in the aftermath of the attack, the production sent out this statement to assure the friends and family of the cast and crew that they are doing fine: “Production has confirmed that everyone working on location in the south of France is okay. Everyone has been accounted for and it safe and sound,” via Dana Brunetti on Facebook.

Entertainment Weekly reports that “Fifty Shades” star Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are still in town and they were actually spotted filming their scenes early that day of the attack. The cast and crew were reportedly immediately back to work the day following the unfortunate violence.

It’s still not known how long the location shoot in Nice will last. “Fifty Shades” previously spent a long location shoot in Canada, where the cast and crew worked for at least four months to shoot two movies.

The “Fifty Shades” sequels are set to debut in theaters in Feb. 2017 and 2018 respectively. The second of the trilogy, “Fifty Shades Darker” will involve Christian battling his demons, while the third, “Fifty Shades Freed” will reportedly end in a wedding between the two characters.
