Producers behind the highly-anticipated Fifty Shades Of Grey adaptation are hoping to release two versions of the film to satisfy fans' demands for a more explicit version of the movie.

Hollywood bosses are planning to include the erotic scenes from the bestselling novel by EL James, but many will be too saucy for the planned R rating in America, which allows viewers under the age of 17 to see the film if accompanied by an adult.

However, producer Dana Brunetti hopes to release a racier version which will have a strict over-18s only policy.

"What we're kind of hearing is that they (the fans) want it dirty, they want it as close to the book as possible. We could release the R-rated version, which everyone will enjoy, and then for those fans who want to get a little gritty we could release an Nc-17 (over-18s only rating) version a few weeks later.

"That is my idea, but the fans and the studio will benefit from the double dip. We do not want this film to be seen as mommy porn, we want to keep it elevated but also give the fans what they want," said Brunetti.

The movie, which stars Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, is set for release in 2015.
