Writer EL James, hot off the massive success of her “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy, recently dropped a few hints about her next project.

James didn’t reveal any plot details besides the fact that it would not be a continuation of her series following college student Anastasia Steele and her billionaire paramour Christian Grey. In fact, she said her new book will be much tamer.

“It won’t be nearly so raunchy – and I will probably write it under another name,” the author told the New York Post.

James is, in fact, a pseudonym for the writer whose real name is Erika Mitchell.

In the interview, the author also discussed the planned movie adaptation of the “50 Shades” books. While rumors have been flying about who’s in consideration to play Anastasia and Christian, James said nothing is definite yet.

“We don’t even have a filmmaker…. so we are still a long way away from casting,” the writer told the Post. “I have some ideas…. but it may not be who people expect.”

The “50 Shades” movie adaptation is being written by Kelly Marcel, who was a co-creator, writer, and executive producer of the Fox sci-fi drama “Terra Nova,” which was canceled after half a season.
