More like “Fifty Shades Of Rumors,” amirite? After Charlie Hunnam‘s surprise exit from the whips ‘n cuffs blockbuster, there has been as much speculation about the actor’s departure, as there has been chatter about who will take his place. And now another name has joined the fray.
JustJared are saying that Francois Arnaud — aka Cesare Borgia on “The Borgias” — is in the mix to play Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades Of Grey.” He now joins Alexander Skarsgard, Jamie Dornen (“The Fall“), Theo James (“Divergent,” “Underworld: Awakening“) and Christian Cooke (the most recent “Romeo And Juliet“) as possibilities for the part. But as you might guess, no formal offers have been made, though he’s reportedly been “approached.”
So, feel free to speculate below as Universal continues to race against the clock to start production on schedule next month, and get this into theaters for August 1, 2014.
