Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie Drops Henry Cavill as Christian Grey

Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie Drops Henry Cavill as Christian Grey

According to reports, Henry Cavill might be out of the running to play Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation because of scheduling conflicts. I just heard a million women start crying. Calm down ladies, nothing’s set in stone yet.

Since a director has now been chosen for the film, casting will be the next major step. Everyone’s favorite choice, Henry Cavill, is just coming off a massive success with Man of Steel this past weekend. Of course, this just reinforces his status as the frontrunner for the role – if he wants it. However, that might not even be an issue anymore since he might not be available to film the movie.

According to a report from Variety, Aaron Johnson – who was initially rumored to possibly be cast as Christian Grey – will be staying home with the kids while his wife, Sam Taylor-Johnson, is directing the film this fall. Although the report doesn’t specifically state the production timeline, the fact that they single out ‘fall’ means that they’re most likely planning on shooting the film during that time period. Of course, it also makes sense from a logistical point of view since the film has to be ready by next summer, and there’s absolutely no way they can film anything later than this fall and have the footage be ready.

Anyway, that leads us to a big problem where Henry’s concerned. He’s set to be shooting The Man From U.N.C.L.E. this fall, and then go right into production for Man of Steel 2. He will literally have no time to breathe, much less shoot another film in between those two. Of course, the production schedule is not confirmed yet, so if they really want him and he really wants to do the film, something could work out. Just don’t hold your breath for that to happen.

    Don’t put “Fifty Shades of Grey Drops Henry Cavill” as your title if that’s not true, and it’s not. We have no idea when they will start filming. We only got a hint it could be sometime this fall. It’s extremely unlikely they can shoot this fall and have the end product ready for theaters by next summer. When Summer 2014 was first mentioned, it was tentative and so many months ago. It’s surely changed by now. So there’s no reason why they couldn’t rework some scheduling if needed. Actors have taken on more than one project at a time, and if Henry is offered the part and he too wants it then they’ll make it work. Simple as that.

    NO WAYS!!! I cant imagine anyone as Christian Grey but Henry Cavill, he’s the only perfect man to play that character….I seriously hope they plan some schedule with him and take him in the movie, I wont be able to see the movie if there’s no Henry as Christian :( Period!!

      I totally agree! It’s almost like the book was written with Henry in mind to play this part. If they don’t work it out with his scheduling, they are such fools. This movie will not be the block buster they are expecting it to be. I thought Hollywood enjoys making MONEY! I guess not. Not with Jaimie Dornan in the lead!
