REPORT: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ tension on set after director Sam Taylor-Johnson, author E.L. James disagree

The racy flick, due out in February 2015, appears to be shooting on schedule despite rumored tension between the book’s author and film director.

Are things getting icy on the otherwise steamy "Fifty Shades of Grey" set?

Director Sam Taylor-Johnson and the book's author, E.L. James, may not exactly be seeing eye to eye.

"Sam is getting annoyed about the way the script is being handled," a source told E! News.


Chemistry between lead actors Dakota Johnson (left) and Jamie Dornan is great, says producer Michael De Luca.

"E.L. James wants the movie to match the book exactly, but Sam has a different perspective. Sam is reminding E.L. she writes books and she makes movies. This has caused some tension between the two of them."

News of the reported frosty relationship comes just days after producer Michael De Luca told E! News that the chemistry between lead actors Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson will make for a good watch.

In fact, it appears Dornan, 31, is stepping into his dominant role quite nicely.


Dornan (right) is said to be ‘protective’ of his leading lady Dakota Johnson.

The smouldering Irish actor has reportedly been "really protective" of Johnson, 24, according to the insider. The actress playing James' Anastasia Steele is "nailing her role" and is apparently well liked by everyone on set.

"Jamie stays to himself and does not talk much," the source added. "Jamie thinks Dakota gets really distracted, because she is so nice to people and so he will walk over to who she is talking to and try and end the conversation. He is nice about it, but he does ask them to leave her alone."

While things may be getting hot between them on set, some local Vancouver residents aren't feeling the "Fifty Shades" heat.

"Neighbors at the building were upset over the noise and water flying everywhere," the E! News insider said, referring to the rainy backdrop needed for the Seattle story.

"An older man continued to ruin scenes by opening his window and shaking a cowbell. He did not stop until they came to some sort of a resolution with producers. Another person in the building told production that if any water comes into his house, they will have to pay for the water damage. Residents are not happy with them shooting there."
