You have all probably heard the Breaking ‘Fifty Shades’ News that was made official hours ago about the actor Charlie Hunnam, who was set to play the lead character of Fifty Shades of Grey, Christian Grey quitting. It is all true!
There are multiple stories being told as to the reasons behind Charlie stepping down from the role. The ‘official’ reason that has been stated by the main sources for the movie and Charlie Hunnam say this:
an “immersive TV schedule” as his reason for pulling out prematurely.
“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 Pictures said in a released statement.
While that may be the actual case, there have been rumors flowing around on social media that began with unknown sources claiming that Charlie Hunnam got cold feet about the highly controversial adaptation and the pressure involved, or as Christian Grey might put it, performance anxiety.
Hunnam will still continue his role as as Jackson “Jax” Teller in Sons of Anarchy as well as his upcoming role in Guillermo del Toro’s next film “Crimson Peak,” also starring Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston.
As the author E.L. James of Fifty Shades of Grey novel series tweeted to Charlie Hunnam: “I wish Charlie all the best x”, we concur.
Now, on with the show… or I should say, on with the casting call once again for ‘Christian Grey’!
