Taylor-Johnson, who admitted to clashing with Fifty Shades author EL James over the film adaptation, won't return to direct the two sequels in the trilogy: Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.
"Directing Fifty Shades of Grey has been an intense and incredible journey for which I am hugely grateful," Taylor-Johnson toldUs Weeklyin a statement. "I forged close and lasting relationships with the cast, producers and crew and most especially, with Dakota [Johnson]and Jamie [Dornan]. While I will not be returning to direct the sequels, I wish nothing but success to whosoever takes on the exciting challenges of films two and three."
Taylor-Johnson said in a previous interview that she and James "definitely fought" while they were collaborating on the film.
Since its Feb. 13 release, Fifty Shades of Grey has earned nearly $165 million at the domestic box office.
