The rumours have finally come to an end. We have had rumour after rumour, after rumour about who should play the lead roles in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Almost ever actor and actress alive has been linked to the film at one point or another but finally the games are over.
While many had the likes of Henry Cavill, Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer down as their ideal Christian Grey, it has now been confirmed that Charlie Hunnam will play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. But the casting news for the eagerly anticipated movie does not stop there.
Fans have been giving their opinions on who should play Anastasia Steele, with the likes of Alexis Bledel and Emilia Clarke topping many of those polls. However, neither of them won the role, as Dakota Johnson will play Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey.
The Fifty Shades of Grey film will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, based on the script that is being written by Kelly Marcel. Meanwhile, Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti will produce the movie. Fifty Shades of Grey will open on August 1, 2014 in both the US and the UK.
