There's no shortage of risqué bondage in Fifty Shades of Grey but there seems to be one person producers had trouble tying down: their leading man.
Charlie Hunnam, who had been cast as Christian Grey in the high-profile movie adaptation of the steamy literary saga, has exited the project.
"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," Universal Pictures and Focus Features said Saturday in a joint statement.

How else to react to the provocative posters for Nymphomaniac – the upcoming film from Danish director Lars von Trier – that capture each of the movie's stars in a seemingly heightened state of arousal.
Set for a world premiere in Denmark on Christmas Day, the controversial NC-17 film follows the erotic life of a woman, Joe (played by Charlotte Gainsbourg) from birth to the age of 50, and stars Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater and Jamie Bell, among others.

After an end-of-summer smash as an astronaut in Gravity, George Clooney will be back onscreen for the holidays, this time in dashing military uniform, saving the world from the Nazis and priceless art from Hitler's grasp.
He gets some help in this feel-good war drama from Bill Murray, John Goodman and Matt Damon. But it's Cate Blanchett, looking pristine in World War II period garb, who appears to steal the show – at least as far as things look in the newly released trailer for The Monuments Men, set to open Dec. 18.
"How can I help you steal our stolen art?" ponders a gamine and decidedly French-acting Blanchett in the film, co-written and directed by Clooney.

For Michael Fassbender, meeting and working with Brad Pitt on 2009's Inglourious Basterds was a life-changing experience.
"Brad is a wonderful human being who has a generous soul," Fassbender, 36, told PEOPLE at Wednesday's Cinema Society and Emporio Armani screening of his new film The Counselor in New York. "I have a lot of reasons to thank him. He has always been a real champion for me."

Without giving away any plot details, how did Sandra Bullock stomach all the weightless special effects she had to contend with while making Gravity – which, with an estimated $55.6 million box-office take this weekend, has set a record for the biggest October movie opening of all time?
Though Bullock had costar George Clooney often at her side, "I would feel sorry for her all the time," director Alfonso Cuarón told the Associated Press about his leading lady.
Lightening that burden, Bullock said, was the warm atmosphere Cuaró provided on the set, which was further enhanced by having her 3½-year-old son, Louis, with her.

After 19 long years, they're back – and looking dumber than ever: Lloyd and Harry, the characters, uh, immortalized by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in the original Dumb and Dumber movie.
And guess what? They clearly haven't gotten any brighter.
"How Roland Rolls comes out TODAY but it may be a little too sophisticated for Lloyd and Harry! Yep ... THEY'RE BAAAAA ...," Carrey, 51, wrote on both Twitter and WhoSay Tuesday.

After a hiatus that lasted a decade, Kelly McGillis has returned to acting. And if her trajectory this time isn't as stratospheric as her Top Gun days, that's just fine with her.
"It's like starting over because I've aged. I've changed," the actress, 56, tells Smashing Interviews magazine. "I have to reintroduce myself to people, so to speak. I don't want to try to recreate what kind of career I had before."
She adds: "I don't want to do plastic surgery. I don't want to try to look younger than what I am. I really want to do character roles."

Tom Hanks is in shipshape.
In his upcoming film Captain Phillips, the actor portrays real-life hero Richard Phillips, the American captain lauded for his bravery after Somali pirates attacked his ship in 2009.
But Hanks, 57, believes there is often a fine line between what defines a hero and a coward.
"I think by and large a third of people are villains, a third are cowards, and a third are heroes," the actor tells Parade. "Now, a villain and a coward can choose to be a hero, but they've got to make that choice."
