Ah! This is exciting news for all the 50 Shades fans out there. Not a huge fan of the books, but I am super excited for the film adaptation, especially because there are so many names floating around about who will play Christian Grey.
Garrett Hedlund was offered the role of Grey, but apparently turned it down because he didn’t want to commit to the eventual sequels. This is the first legitimate report coming out of production talks. His name wasn’t even on the list for potential actors to play Grey, so this came as a huge surprise. Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill have been in most of the rumours.
As the film is set to release in August 14, production should be starting anytime, and it will be any day now that the full cast list is revealed. I’m surprised they’ve kept it a secret this long.Follow @hollywd_heroine
At Comic Con 2013, E.L James said Ian Somerhalder will not get the part of Christian Grey.
