Things have really been heating up on the Fifty Shades of Grey film front this week. First, Universal chairman Adam Fogelson confirmed that he's aiming for a Summer 2014 release date and also mentioned that the Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed films are also in the works. after that, screenwriter Kelly Marcel tweeted that she was excited that E L James was on her way to L.A. and that she had something to show her.
Could a first draft of the screenplay finally be ready? See how it all went down on Twitter below.

Good moaning all... I have been awake since 4 am... (sighs)... Luckily I had some very interesting reading to catch up... ;)— E L James (@E_L_James) February 22, 2013
Interesting reading? I'll bet! Of course, it wasn't long before fans started chiming in, wanting to know if James was hinting at a screenplay. She wouldn't confirm anything, but she wasn't denying anything either.

Come on Erika... we are DYING over here! Is the first draft done or what? Why else would she have flown all the way to L.A. to meet with Kelly Marcel? What do you think?
