HOLLYWOOD- Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson has revealed that she was not offered any new projects after the success of the film.

"I literally was scrambling still, in exactly the same position I was prior to that. I'd say to my agent, 'I love this book. I really love it. What's the deal with it?' 'They're going to Steven, Steven, David, David, and John.’ But I know I’m fully capable," the director told IndieWire in a recent interview.

Fifty Shades franchise starred Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in lead roles.

"I’ve done a short film. I’ve done an indie. I’ve done a blockbuster. I’ve done a TV show. I’ve just now done extreme small budget. I’m experienced across the board. I’ve shown I’m capable, but I’m still far down the list.”

Sam is currently working on an adaptation of James Frey's controversial A Million Little Pieces.
