After Charlie Hunnam announced he would no longer play Christian Grey in the upcoming FIFTY SHADES OF GREY film, the race to find a replacement has begun. Clint Eastwood’s son, Scott Eastwood, is the next victim in the gossip columns’ game, according to Just Jared.
Charlie’s untimely departure (as in, production is starting in November, ‘untimely’) from the project has led to media speculation. Charlie reportedly said that the reason for his leave was due to the seemingly uncontrollable, instantaneous fan-frenzy and his commitment to “Sons of Anarchy.” We all know that “Sons of Anarchy” was not going to cause conflict with his schedule; however, Charlie is smart in protecting his image in this way.
Scott Eastwood as Christian Grey is an interesting choice. He’s relatively unknown, other than his relation to his famous father. This could, perhaps, be the best for the film; however, I have my doubts about whether Dakota Johnson, who plays the female lead Anastasia Steele, will have chemistry with Scott.
