Charlie Hunnam Drops Out of "Fifty Shades of Grey" Movie

Posted: October 13th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Charlie Hunnam Drops Out of "Fifty Shades of Grey" MovieSubmit Comment
Last month, Universal Pictures announced that Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) and Dakota Johnson (The Social Network) were cast as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie, based on the popular book series by EL James.

After the announcement, Hunnam immediately became popular among fans of the books, for the right and wrong reasons. In fact, the studio had to hire extra bodyguards for his appearances to promote any of his movies or his "Sons of Anarchy" TV series.

Now comes word that Hunnam has dropped out. "The filmmakers of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam's immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey," Universal said in a statement.

Many believe that Hunnam dropped out because fans of the book series have been actively campaigning for the actor to be replaced. After much pressure, Hunnam decided he wasn't ready for a role like this.

"Fifthy Shades of Grey" will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and is set to hit theaters on August 1st, 2014.

Finally, an actor pulled a smart move. Just give the lead to channing twatum or I'm sure Nicolas Cage will take the role if no one else does.

Time to prepare for the role of Christian Grey? What is there to prepare for other than a stupid cardboard stereotype designed to get sexually frustrated soccer moms wet?
On the other hand, kudos for Hunnam for running away from this cinematic pile of sh*t. If only people read good books...

Fans can petition the casting change for this bullsh*t but the same doesn't work for Ben Affleck as Batman? Hahaha...
