Announced just over a month ago as the co-starring lead alongside Dakota Johnson, Charlie Hunnman has pulled out early, right before the climax (sorry, gross) that would(n’t) be The Fifty Shades Of Grey movie – just a month before production. I guess he finally read the script and realised that he was actually signing up for the worst movie of all time? Dodged that awkward but financially lucrative bullet there, Charlie.
Personally, I’d like to see James Franco top off his ludicrous so-called life of jarring talents and put his hand up for it. It’s pretty safe to say, however, that that won’t happen and they’ll pick someone like Bomer (one letter away from boner, amirite) or Robert Pattinson – star of Twilight, the franchise that inspired Fifty Shades of Grey in the first place.
