Charlie Hunnam

Bails on 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie

Sorry ladies ... Charlie Hunnam has just dropped out of the big screen adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" -- and it's all because of his role on "Sons of Anarchy."

According to reports ... the decision was made because Hunnam wasn't able to "adequately prepare" for the role due to his "immersive" TV schedule.

Makes sense, since filming was supposed to begin on the movie later this month -- but just days ago Hunnam was talking up how seriously he had been taking the role ... so it's pretty surprising.

Ian Somerhalder, your move.

It'd take serious cash - but I can see Harvey Levin in this -


I've seen him in the gym - and we all know he's buff.

Cast a TMZ dude - maybe the announcer.


Better still, Charles.


Charles is young-enough, studly-enough, plus he's bored silly with his TMZ announcing gig.


At least let Charles read for the damn thing.

That is one smart man......cause whom ever gets this role will be labeled for the rest of his career....this is nothing but a porn movie if they go by the book which was really only a weak fools dream of romance....Sorry but being a victim is not my cup of tea...or coffee or hell anything ....

I'd cast both of the Barbarian-Brothers.


David and Peter Paul.


Saw them take a 2-by-4 to someone once -


They could recreate that - plus make a comeback.

Couldn't get 1/2 way through the book but I love Charlie Hunnam and thought his role was well cast.

How about that James Deen guy the Porn King who was in the Slop fest sex movie with Lindsay..Lohan ...He's got the experience in Porn and equipment from what I heard and he would come cheap....and fits the charactor like a glove.

Seems to me he found his out. I think he was rethinking this career move and realized it wasn't in his best interest to play the part. Scheduling conflict works well here. I read the books and don't think the movie will be worth seeing. Can't imagine who they'll pick next for the role.?
