"Fifty Shades of Grey" fans will have a lot to look forward to once the steamy best-selling novel releases its movie adaption.

According to Michael De Luca, the film's producer, the movie will capture the "intense and erotic love story" between kinky billionaire Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

"We're going to give them what they expect, which is an intense and erotic love story," said De Luca last week at the PGA Producers' Breakfast in Park City, Utah, according to Deadline.

However, De Luca did note that there will be some restrictions in the film. "Obviously the film can't be as explicit as the book. A picture is worth a 1000 words. So to be erotic onscreen means I think an image is going to have way more power than reading the words on a page," he said.

"We're very conscious of not making anything gratuitous or exploitive while being faithful to the stories of the book and to the fans of the book," said the producer at the Sundance Film Festival.

De Luca, who will step in as the president of Production for Columbia Pictures on March 1, also revealed that he decided to take on the project due to the book's captivating love story.

"Not to sound corny, but it is, at its heart, a young love story," he said. "I think those things always work. No matter what you think about the book, those things are in that story and they are very cinematic. I think people love a good love story and the these two characters endeared themselves to 90 million readers so it's hard to say that it didn't connect on a deeper level than just its more sensationalist aspects, but it was the love story that did it for me."

He went on to praise the romantic novel's author E.L. James.

"She's been great, she's been collaborative and active," he said of his fellow producer on the film. "She the true north, she's the North Star for us with these characters so it's been great being able to check with her."

"Fifty Shades of Grey" is set to be released on February 13, 2015, reports Metro.Uk.
