The highly-anticipated movie adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" has finally wrapped up filming in Vancouver, Canada, giving film's cast and crew a reason to celebrate.

E.L. James, the author of the best-selling erotic book series, made the announcement via Twitter on Friday, Feb. 21.

"And that is a wrap...," she tweeted. She also shared a photo on Instagram of her with a drink in her hand and the film's director, Sam Taylor-Johnson with the caption, "One of us is drinking. It's a wrap."

Subsequently, the writer posted a Twitter pic of an empty room with a white couch that may have been used as an office or brainstorming room for producers. She addressed the caption to the movie producers, writing, "It is so empty without you @michaelDe_luca @danabrunetti"

Producer Michael De Luca recently revealed 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 noted 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," he added at the Sundance Film Festival.

On Wednesday, Vintage Books announced that the erotica series has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide and has joined the ranks with other popular book series that have topped the 100 million mark like "Harry Potter" and "Twilight."

The Vintage Books publishing company acquired the series back in March 2012 and published all three books within weeks. The trilogy has also been listed as a New York Times best-seller for 100 weeks, reports the New York Times.
