Charlie Hunnam’s name has been all the rage since being announced for the lead role of Christian Grey in the highly anticipated movie Fifty Shades Of Grey. Fans of the S&M franchise spoke up to either defend Charlie as the choice for the role or suggest replacements. Since, he has backed out of the project in lieu of his other work commitments. Could it have been the rumors floating around about Charlie only getting $125,000 for the role?
Surely, $125,000 sounds like a ton of money to all of us, but to an actor for a successful franchise, it doesn’t sound like a lot at all. He really shocked us when it was announced that he was leaving the movie projects because we really liked the thought of him playing Christian. Who else could possibly take this role and make it into something special? It’s not like the source material is a work of art or anything…
Charlie has opened up about his departure from the movie. He said in a new interview, “I am doing good. I am just really concentrating on work. It’s been a really busy time. I have had some family stuff going on so just trying to stay focused and stay positive and keep trying to do a good job at work and be with my family and stay positive.”

E.L. James’ popular “mommy porn” series Fifty Shades Of Grey has been finally given a release date! For all of us speculating who would be taking the lead roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, this is most certainly excellent news.
Recent speculation has suggested that the role of Christian would be bestowed upon the likes of Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder. Others have said that the role would go to either Alexander Skarsgard, Matt Bomer, Channing Tatum or Armie Hammer (spoiler alert: he doesn’t want to do it).
The first movie in the trilogy is set to hit theaters on August 1, 2014. Until then, we are left with nothing but speculation as to who will be playing the role of the billionaire S&M loving executive. Who do you want to see taking on the role of Christian Grey? What about Anastasia Steele? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
Is Twilight actor Robert Pattinson gearing up to star as the lead role of Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of E.L. James’ bestselling novel Fifty Shades Of Grey?
We searched the internet to find the sexiest possible photo that we could possibly find of Rob to use for this post. He isn’t a bad looking guy — but when you look into his eyes here, do you see the smoldering sexiness that is supposed to be Christian Grey? Or do you see that sparkly vampire kid from Twilight — you know, the one that Kristen Stewart fell for during those four years of filming?
Rob was said to be hanging out with E.L. this weekend at a party at his Los Feliz mansion. The party was said to be a Great Gatsby themed bash and several high profile celebrities were in attendance.
Does this mean that she is looking to court him to play the role of Christian for her movie trilogy? What do you think of the idea? Is this the ideal Christian that you see when you’ve torn through the pages of the Fifty Shades books? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below. In addition, if you don’t think he is the perfect fit, then share with us who is!
In case you hadn’t heard, E.L. James’ book “Fifty Shades Of Grey” is being made into a movie — or three. Well, the screenwriter, Kelly Marcel is now chiming in on the MPAA rating for the racy movie. According to her, the movie will be just as racy as the books and will garner an NC-17 rating from the board.
She revealed in a new interview, “Well, there is going to be a lot of sex in the film. It will be rated NC-17. It’s going to be raunchy.”
She went on to say that some of the sex scenes would be edited out in favor of the plot, but said, “We are 100% going there.” She said, “We did go through and decided which are our favorites and which are not. Most of them are in there, but I can’t say more than that.”
With regard to the male lead in the books, she said, “I just love Christian Grey, I feel….very deeply for him.”
Still, there has been no word released on who will be portraying the rich S&M freak and his submissive girlfriend Anastasia Steele. Who do you think would be a perfect fit for the roles? Did you expect the movie to get anything less than an NC-17 rating? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!
If you’re wondering who will be taking on the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of “Fifty Shades Of Grey”, then you are not alone. The truth of the matter is that even the books’ author, E.L. James doesn’t even know. So it’s not yet cast in stone as far as who will take on the lead roles for the movie, but the author is making a wish list.
She revealed on Katie Couric’s talk show that she does have a short list of actors for the movie roles, but she’s not revealing the names on that list. She said, “I have three people who could play Christian and I think four who could play Anna, and I’m not going to tell you any of them.”
When speaking of creating the books, she said, “All this has been a huge shock to me. When I got the first email asking about the film rights, I nearly fell off my chair; it was a huge Hollywood agency! The books are my fantasy. I wrote them for me, really, and the wonderful thing about doing this is they seem to be other people’s fantasies, so I’m not such a pervert.”
Who do you think is going to make the cut to play Christian and Anastasia?
