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.

Good for him, who wants to get type-casted by playing some cheesy character from a even more cheesy book; that made soccer moms across America flick their beans.

I lost my respect for Charlie...The book might not be really good but Michael de Luca and Dana Brunetti are great producers they wd make something really good...

There's more to this story than we're being told. Who gives up millions of dollars because of a scheduling conflict that already had been addressed? Something happened. Come on TMZ do your job and dig into this further.

I attempted to read this book and couldn't get through the first few pages. It sucks!!! This movie is the laughing stock of Hollyweird, which is saying a lot. No "real" actors want any part in it. I'm glad the Charlie came to his senses. They might as well either get all unknowns to do this crap movie or just porn stars. There is no way in hell this movie is going to make any money and it's definitely going to ruin careers.

You're right. Elizabeth Berkley's career never recovered and she did try.
