Fifty Shades of Grey Movie: Is Charlie Hunnam in or Out as Christian?

| by Lauren Schiff

Despite widespread disapproval and rejection from fans lately, it seems that Charlie Hunnam has decided to stick with playing the lead role of Christian Grey in the upcoming film rendition of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

For a minute there, he was apparently truly contemplating throwing in the towel on this one, but he now is said to be stepping up the plate and taking the steamy role head-on.

And how do we know? Apparently, he’s been starring in a few of E.L. James’ recent Tweets, which means the two obviously have no beef between them.

James may be happy with the hunk playing her sexy character, but that doesn’t mean that fans of the novels aren’t still disappointed with her choice. Proponents of Hunnam need not worry, though; he has reportedly “been given a team of bodyguards,” says the Hollywood Gossip.

Watch out for “Fifty Shades of Grey” in theaters beginning on August 1, 2014.
