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 Sons of Anarchy star was officially cast Monday – along with Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele – for the film adaptation of E L James's Fifty Shades of Grey.
Hunnam, 33, admits that after reading the book and meeting with the film's director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, he was intrigued but needed more to seal the deal.

Is Grey going blond?
While the names of countless Hollywood stars have been bound to the leading roles in the film adaptation of E L James's mega-selling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, recent rumors tie two towheaded, younger actors to the project: Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam.
Johnson, 23 – daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith – is a former model who turned heads in The Social Network and the short-lived sitcom Ben and Kate.
