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.

They should just pick two unknowns. Kristin Stewart and Robert P. weren't that known and they turned out to be the perfect Bella and Edward.

Silly TMZ    

He's too good for that lame story. I bet he got a chance to read the book and discovered what a piece of sh** it is. Good move Charlie. Now all the horny housewife fans can go back to whining about that creepy looking dude Ian Somerwhatever getting the part.

Please! not Somerhalder. This book's audience is not majority 20 - 30 somethings. It shows from their casting that they were thinking about that. They had a relative unknown on Twilight, surely they can find someone for this franchise, even with the undertones of the story.

Thank goodness. Did not like him for the part anyway. Need to cast the "Man of Steel" for the part.
