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.

Ian ??? HE IS SKINNY. Thats not the CG i envisioned at all. I am a die hard 50 as all of you may be , and Charlie has massive potential. Have you seen the body on him?!!! He colored his hair and he looks like CG! If people could stop posting his current SOA pics and maybe some other pictures then they start to see the vision. Now if they put Ian, or Ryan then forget it. Ugh. Bad enough Dakota isnt Ana at all. Chris Hemsworth, now thats a thumbs up. OH!!!! E.L. James, what ever shall you do? fawk it.

He probably came to his senses, that's what happened. Maybe he actually read the book.

bored now    

I like Ian but in no way could I see him as Christian Grey. He isn't tall enough and has a slight build. I think that Charlie Hunnam was a great choice and would have surprised a lot of people.

I think this movie's gonna be a flop. I'm glad he backed out. This might've been a career wrecker like Showgirls.

I am so glad he dropped out! He was not anywhere near good looking enough and looks sleazy. That idiot E.L. James deserves this for making such a poor choice. Ian Somerhalder is the only one they should have considered. They are stupid to not have gone with Ian but if they ask him now I hope he tells them to f off since the movie will suck and will probably ruin the actor's career who takes the role.
