Actor Charlie Hunnam will play Christian Grey in the upcoming film ’50 Shades of Grey’. Universal Pictures and Focus Features announced the casting shortly after revealing that Dakota Johnson will play the lead female, Anastasia Steele. The much anticipated film isn’t due out until August of 2014 so the millions of readers will have to wait another year until they can see Hunnam and Johnson remake the popular book by E L James.
According to GossipCop, James is very excited about the casting. “The gorgeous and talented Charlie Hunnam will be Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey,” Tweeted James last week. Clearly, she’s in favor of the casting.
You can find Hunnam on the show ‘Sons of Anarchy’ and in several less-than-popular films like ‘Green Street Hooligans’. Casting the film adaptation of the best-selling erotic novel has been a topic of speculation and false rumors for well over a year. There have been big names attached to the role, but in the end Hunnam won out. The movie will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. We can not finally put this story to bed.
