“Fifty Shades Darker” has hit yet another roadblock in its production. This time, the sad news about the movie is about its delayed filming.

It was reported earlier this month that the filming of the flick will start in February in Vancouver. However, it has now been reported that there is a delay in the production of the film. The shooting of “Fifty Shades Darker” was previously slated to commence on Feb. 9, but now this appears far from reality, according to a report by What's Filming?, which claims that the start of the production for the film has been moved to Feb. 15.

The third part of the “Fifty Shades” trilogy titled “Fifty Shades Freed” will be shot right after the production for “Fifty Shades Darker” wraps up. The sequel to “Fifty Shades Of Grey” will star Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Rita Ora and Luke Grimes in lead roles. In addition to this, the buzz is rife that “Fifty Shades Darker” is set for a Feb. 12, 2017 release.

The first part of the trilogy, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” was released nearly a year ago on Feb. 14, 2015 and became a huge hit. However, the viewers will have to wait for two years to see the second part of the trilogy on movie screens.

Actor Dornan, who portrayed the lead role of Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” is set to welcome his second child with wife Amelia Warner, and various reports claim that this is the main reason behind the delay of the film’s shooting.

Meanwhile, Dornan recently appeared in a BAFTA video interview and opened up about his role as Paul Spector in BBC's “The Fall.” He revealed that he finds his role tougher to portray than Christian Grey.
