The official release date of the screen adaptation of E.L James’ erotic novel 50 Shades of Grey has now been postponed to 2015. The movie for the bestselling novel announced its cast line-up last year, after years of debate and the film was originally meant to be released at some point this year. The delay was apparently because actor Charlie Hunman – who was originally cast to play Christian Bale – pulled out last minute due to a busy TV schedule on U.S show Sons Of Anarachy.
Upcoming Irish actor Jamie Dorman has now been enlisted to star as the lead character while Dakota Johnson will remain on the cast as Anastasia Steele. The film has already been receiving negative feedback even before its begun production, with audiences criticizing the relationship between the film’s leading characters as abusive and a bad example for young girls. The original 50 Shades Of Grey books tell the story of college graduate Anastacia Steele who gets involved in a sexual relationship with an older Christian Grey who likes to play the dominant role. Filming is scheduled to starts in October this year.
