13:17ETonline: Британец Джейми Дорнан заменит Чарльза Ханнэма в "50 оттенков серого" (Fifty Shades of Grey)
(ДОБАВЛЕН ВИДЕО-ОБЗОР ОТ POPSUGAR) Ну, это было быстро! Спустя немногим более недели, после того, как Чарли Ханнэм выбыл из состава фильма "50 оттенков серого" (Fifty Shades of Grey) , выбран новый исполнитель главной роли!
ETonline может подтвердить, что ирландский актер Джейми Дорнан (фильм Софьи Коппола «Мария Антуанетта») заменит звезду «Сыновей Анархии» в роли Кристиана Грея в пару Дакоте Джонсон как Анастасии Стил в предстоящей экранизации бестселлера Э.Л. Джеймс. В настоящий момент Universal и Focus Features отказываются комментировать новости о кастинге (первые сообщения поступили от Variety и Hollywood Reporter). 12 октября было опубликовано заявление студий, занимающихся производством этого фильма, объясняющих, что занятый телевизионный график Ханнэма лишил его возможности достойно подготовиться к роли. Мы согласны с выбором Дорнана из всех кандитатов на роль Кристиана Грея, а вот почему, смотрите под катом
ETonline can confirm that Irish actor Jamie Dornan (Once Upon a Time, Marie Antoinette) will replace the Sons of Anarchy star in the role of Christian Grey opposite Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele in the upcoming film adaptation of E.L. James' steamy best-seller.
At this time, Universal and Focus Features have declined to comment on the casting news (first reported by Variety and The Hollywood Reporter).
On October 12, a statement was released by the studios producing the movie explaining that Hunnam's busy TV schedule made it impossible for him to sufficiently prepare for the role.

"The filmmakers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam's immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey," said the statement released by Universal Pictures and Focus Features.
Variety.com: Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan has been tapped to replace Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey in the Universal and Focus adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey.” Dornan plays Sheriff Graham Humbert in ABC series "Once Upon a Time”; he’s also played a serial killer in BBC Two crime drama "The Fall,” and he appeared in Sofia Coppola’s "Marie Antoinette.” The 31-year-old thesp performs in an Irish folk duo and has modeled for Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Armani. His modeling experience may be useful, as the part will require him to act in explicitly sexual scenes.
Dakota Johnson will co-star as Anastasia Steele, with Sam Taylor-Johnson on board to direct.
Universal and Focus Features declined to comment.
The project was hit with a huge curveball when Hunnam departed after being attached for just a month. Universal said Hunnam’s exit was due to scheduling issues with "Sons of Anarchy” and upcoming movie "Crimson Peak,” but some sources said battles over a rewrite and the actor’s doubts about the role may have played a part in his decision.
When Hunnam exited, U and Focus execs decided to go for more of a discovery and brought in Dornan and Billy Magnussen to test with Johnson last Friday. Though the studio considered bringing in more actors to test, as of Wednesday morning sources said no one else had been brought in.
Universal will now work quickly to land thesps for the remaining supporting roles that include Steele’s roommate Kate, a role for which U had already been testing actresses prior to Hunnam’s exit. Michael De Luca is on to produce the adaptation of E.L. James’ sexy bestseller, which is set to bow Aug. 1, 2014. Dornan is repped by UTA and United Agents.
TheHollywood Reporter: Jamie Dornan has been chosen as the new Christian Grey for Universal and Focus’ adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Negotiations with the actor now are underway.

Charlie Hunnam infamously backed out of the project a week and a half ago, setting off a feverish pursuit to find his replacement.
The U.K.-based Dornan was first revealed as a contender for the role of kinky billionaire Grey by THR on Oct. 14. He is the star of the U.K. series The Fall and might be best-known to U.S. audiences for playing the Huntsman in ABC's Once Upon a Time. Born in Northern Ireland, he's a former Calvin Klein model and dated Keira Knightley for two years.
Dornan, 31, actually was contacted before Hunnam officially dropped out, and tested Friday opposite female lead Dakota Johnson for director Sam Taylor-Johnson, author EL James and producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti. Tony-nominated actor Billy Magnussen also tested, as did Francois Arnaud from The Borgias, according to sources.
Dornan will now face the blinding spotlight of both fans of the best-selling trilogy and the media. Hunnam and Universal cited a scheduling conflict as the reason for his exit, but THR reported that he was uncomfortable with the frenzy surrounding the project. Universal was forced to hire bodyguards for the Sons of Anarchy actor at a premiere, and two appearances to promote the show were canceled. Hunnam, who also is a writer (he penned the gothic horror screenplay Vlad for Brad Pitt's Plan B and Summit Entertainment), is said to have had issues with Kelly Marcel's adaptation of the book. The script is getting a polish by Patrick Marber (Notes on a Scandal).
Universal was under pressure to begin production Nov. 1 on the high-profile project in order to meet an Aug. 1, 2014, release date. If Dornan's deal closes, he will be signed for three and possibly four Fifty Shades movies based on the erotic book, assuming the first film is successful.
THR also has learned that Universal and Focus had approached Juno Temple to play Anastasia Steele's (Johnson) best friend and Frank Grillo to play Grey's bodyguard. Both actors passed on the roles, according to sources.
