50 Shades of Grey: 23 funniest quotes from EL James's novel

"We're very conscious of not making anything gratuitous or exploitive while being faithful to the stories of the book and the fans of the book," De Luca said.

"We're going to give them what they expect, which is an intense and erotic love story. Obviously the film can't be as explicit as the book.

"A picture is worth 1,000 words. So to be erotic on screen means I think an image is going to have way more power than reading the words on a page."

50 Shades of Grey author EL James on movie: "I'm terrified"

He later added of EL James's novel: "The book is explicit by design because the author wanted to get inside of the female character and wanted to in detail go through her experience.

"On a literary level that was necessary but on film it is a whole different medium. In any adaption of a book, you have to lose some stuff and you have to combine some stuff.

"In the dramatic arch of a two-hour or 90-minute movie, it's a three-act structure."
