Los Angeles - Kim Basinger has signed up for Fifty Shades Darker.
The 62-year-old actress is set to star in the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey as Christian Grey's (Jamie Dornan) former business partner and lover, Elena Lincoln, E! News reports.
The film - which also stars Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele - is expected to begin production early next month with the release date currently set for 10 February, 2017.
Meanwhile, the latest instalment of the film will be directed by James Foley after Sam Taylor-Johnson walked away from the project.
Speaking to confirm her exit previously, she said: "Directing Fifty Shades of Grey has been an intense and incredible journey for which I am hugely grateful. I have Universal to thank for that. 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."
Despite stepping away from the project, Sam admits it was a "monumental" experience.
She told BANG Showbiz: "I'm flattered they wanted me to continue. But it was a monumental job - that was enough for me."
