From Giant Robots To Heaving Bosoms: Universal Wants Charlie Hunnam For 50 SHADES OF GREY

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Give Pacific Rim and Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam this much: He's diversifying. Or, at least, he will be if the producers of the Sam Taylor-Johnson directed adaptation of your mom's favorite erotica, 50 Shades Of Grey, have anything to say about it. Already firmly ensconced within fanboy circles thanks to his breakout TV role and his ongoing relationship with director Guillermo Del Toro - who has also cast Hunnam for his upcoming Crimson Peak - Twitch has learned that Hunnam has emerged as producers' prime target to play, and I quote, "handsome, yet tormented billionaire" Christian Grey.

And whose bosoms will be heaving? There have been long standing stories circulating regarding both Shailene Woodley and Felicity Jones and both remain in the running along with Alicia Vikander.

Somehow this is not the first time we've written about 50 Shades of Grey on Twitch. I'm not sure how that's possible.
