Rita Ora is set to star in two more 'Fifty Shades of Grey' films.

The first movie isn't due to be released until February 14 2015, but according to The Sun, 'Hot Right Now' songstress Rita has confirmed she will continue to play her on-screen character, Mia Grey, in the next two installments of the erotic film trilogy.

However, the blonde starlet has implied that her film career will be taking a back seat as she focuses on building her brand as a singer, telling the newspaper: "Music is obviously my main focus in life, but the movie was planned for when I had time to focus on it."

Rita has previously revealed that she got so flustered on set that she had to resort to using an earpiece to remember her lines as she acted opposite her on-screen brother, Jamie Dornan.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, she confessed: "I had to have someone in my ear on set telling me what to say before I said it because I was honestly like so nervous I forgot everything that I had learnt."

Rounding out the fictional family, actress Marcia Gay Harden - who plays Rita and Jamie's on-screen mother, Grace Grey - shared how the actor was happy to serenade the cast with Rita's songs in between takes.

She told Entertainment Weekly Radio: "Behind the scenes, he'll jump into an Irish ditty, or he was singing a lot of Rita Ora."

Fifty Shades of Grey

  • 3 stars
  • 2015
  • US
  • 125 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle
  • UK release: 13 February 2015

Despite its troubling gender politics and distinct lack of plot, the likeable Johnson brings nuance and charm to a paper-thin character; Dornan manages to offer a hint of humanity; and given the many constraints, this sleek, fairly trim and occasionally sensual adaptation is the best imaginable outcome.
