Charlie Hunnam & Model Cara Delevingne Latest Rumored Names For ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

Charlie Hunnam & Model Cara Delevingne Latest Rumored Names For 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

It’s a been a little while since we’ve had any news surrounding the “mommy porn” adaptation, “Fifty Shades Of Grey.” While the brewing movie gained a director this summer in Sam Taylor-Johnson, casting continues to elude fans, with only rumor and speculation kicking around at the moment. We’ve seen a number of names tossed around thus far for the leads of Christian and Anastasia—Felicity Jones, Emma Watson, Stephen Amell, Elizabeth Olsen, Alex Pettyfer, Shailene Woodley, Alicia Vikander—but it’s basically been a mix of wishful thinking. But now you can tell your Mom to start considering a couple of other folks.

Apparently, producers for the movie are doing some heavy breathing for Charlie Hunnam to take the role of Christian Grey. He’s reportedly a “prime target” and he was seen recently saving the world with his buff bod in “Pacific Rim,” and there’s probably a hilarious sexual pun to be made out of all of this, so we’ll let you make those jokes below. Meanwhile, another rumor is kicking around that model Cara Delevingne has auditioned for the movie, though not in the lead role of Anastasia Steele. We haven’t read the book… There are other characters? We thought it was just a couple hundred pages of sexin’.

Anyway, debate and complain below. Still no release date or word on when this will roll into production, but it seems everyone is taking their time to make sure it’s done right. [Twitch/Digital Spy]
