The 34-year-old actor had to drop out of the big screen adaptation one month after he was announced he had land the role of Christian Grey, the young sexy billionaire who secretly practices BDSM and falls for a college graduate Anastasia Steele played by Dakota Johnson. Focus Features and Universal Pictures said that Hunnam exited the movie because he was also shooting “Sons of Anarchy” and upcoming movie “Crimson Park”. He was replaced by the actor Jamie Dornan. In fact, Hunnam said walking away from the part was “pretty heartbreaking.” “I don’t think people have had unchaperoned access to me since all of this went on… he CliffsNotes were exactly what we said. I couldn’t do it because of (the) schedule. It was as simple as that.” The actor even said he would be willing to have his audition tape be included as a DVD extra for curious fans.

The 34-year-old actor said JamieDornan is “probably a lot better looking and a lot smoother” than him.“I would’ve brought a certain rugged charm to (the role), but believe me, he’s going to do just fine.”Hunnam also had some kind words for E.L. James the author of the book on which the movie is based. ““I think people really do that book a disservice when they reduce it to that type of talk,” he said. “What (E.L. James) actually created is a really sophisticated dynamic and presented it in a package which was accessible to people who normally would be terrified of that subject. . . . Actually what she did was pretty brilliant.”
The movie Fifty Shades of Grey is scheduled to open on Valentine’s Day in 2015. We will share the full Fifty Shades of Grey trailer when it’s released this Thursday till then stay tuned with us.
Starz CEO Chris Albrecht told reporters on July 11 at the Television Critics Association press tour that he had asked Universal for the rights of E.L. James S&M novels. If successful he would have adapted the best-selling novels into three seasons, one season for each book. Chris Albrecht is taking the same approach with his upcoming series Outlander adapted from the best-selling novels by Diana Gabaldon, which is based on a series of romantic fantasy novel. Outlander won the Romance Writer’s of America Award for Best Romance of 1991. Starz will be releasing the first eight episodes out of 16 in August, with an early online premiere. The remaining eight episodes will air in early 2015.
Albrecht said: “I’m the guy who called up Universal and said, ‘I’ll get you three years on the air as a series—let’s just do a Fifty Shades of Grey series.’ You don’t have to worry about box office, you don’t have to worry about a rating, you can tell the story the right way. … But movie people think things should be movies, and authors think things should be movies. Because up until recently, movies have been the Tiffany jeweled crown. And certainly from what I see you people writing, that seems to be changing.”
For those who are unfamiliar with the series, Outlander is the first in a series of eight historical multi-genre novels by Diana Gabaldon, published in 1991. It focuses on the 20th century nurse Claire Randall, who accidently steps back in time to the year 1743 and finds adventure and romance with dashing young Scottish warrior named James Fraser. The Outlander series features elements of romance, historical fiction, adventure and science fiction. The Outlander series of books have sold over 20 million copies with eighth novels in the series that was released on June 2014.
