Fifty Shades of Grey Movie Production Delayed Due to Casting Change

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Fifty Shades of Grey movie has its leading man - for the second time - but the casting change has forced a month-long delay in the start of production.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Charlie Hunnam's departure from the role of Christian Grey, which went to Jamie Dornan, has put off the production.

The movie was initially set to start filming in early November. Now it won't begin until December 2, which could jeopardize its August 1, 2014 release date.

Nothing has been decided regarding the latter point, but if they can get it filmed in 3-4 months, that still leaves another few more for any post-production.

What is known is that Dakota Johnson will star as Anastasia Steele in the film alongside Dornan, who takes over for Hunnam as Ana's lover Christian.

Also in the cast are Luke Grimes as Elliot Grey, Christian Grey's brother, and Jennifer Ehle as Anastasia's mom. Sam Taylor-Johnson is set to direct.

The idea that the Fifty Shades of Grey production would be delayed is also not surprising given the "polishing" of the script first written by Kelly Marcel.

Marcel penned the script, which Patrick Marber hopped on to "do a polish and character work," and now Mark Bomback is also on board to revise.

While producers often bring a new writer on as shooting draws nearer, Bomback's arrival on the scene as the third scribe a bit of an eyebrow-raiser.

He worked on the 2008 sex club thriller Deception, starring Michelle Williams, Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor, so he's got credentials at least.

As for the two leads ... tell us what you think below!

Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey ...

 

Dakota Johnson as Ana Steele ...

To previous commenters', first I'd like to say that I can understand how people can be offended by some of the contents of the story. But I would like to point out that it is just that, a story. If this style is not for you, than plz simply walk past the displays, change the channel, but most of all plz don't ruin it for the rest of us. I respect your feelings and you have the right to speak your mind. But so do I , I see this story as a beautiful, romantic relationship. I have read the books and articles and I didn't think of it as porn or snuff. I believe that if you read all the books you might feel different, but if you did read them & this is your feelings, I can respect that. With that said I would like to point out that people where offended by Howard Stern as I was one of them. I didn't listen to his show nor did I watch his tv series. I'm still not a fan of his but I do watch AMERICAS Got talent . I'm looking forward to this movie & more books by EL. James . Plz don't ruin it for me and others who do enjoy this style of romance. Ty.

Thank you , Joy ... your assessment in regard to the above mentioned production is important in its heralding of the snuff porn problem in the organzed crime controlled movie industry . This sort of activity is considered by law enforcement as gateway material to sexual crime . let me assure you , it is under investgation ... pursuant to interviews wih prospective participants , voluntary disassociation with the activity has been assured us .. keep up the good work .
