Did Jamie Dornan Leave Fifty Shades of Grey?
Fifty Shades of Grey is one of those movies that came out weeks ago and people haven’t been able to stop talking about it since. Obviously the subject matter is water cooler material, but now people can’t keep Fifty Shades of Grey out of their mouth because of Jamie Dornan. For those who don’t know, Jamie Dornan plays Christian Grey, a prominent businessman who has a thing for whips and chains in the bedroom. Plain and simple, Dornan is the star of this film and now there’s rumors that he’s leaving the franchise.
Okay Fifty Shades of Grey fans, I’m here to set the record straight. This news that Dornan is walking away from the movie is completely false. The 32-year-old Irish actor told E! News that, “All press reports are pure conjecture as the studio has not committed to a sequel as yet.” So, where did these rumors even come from? You can blame Australian magazine NW. They originally reported that Dornan was quitting the series because his wife, Amelia Warner, was uncomfortable with all the BDSM scenes.
Obviously when this report came out, fans took to Twitter to show their outrage at not only Dornan, but his wife as well. However, it should be noted that the studio hasn’t even committed to making a second film. Although with all the success of the first one, it should be expected. After all, the author, E.L. James, did write three installments. Dornan and his co-star are even contracted to be in any sequels that come up. Besides the Dornan news, there is also talk that the franchise is looking for a new screenwriter and director for the second movie, if there is one. The first one was directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.
What are your thoughts on Dornan confirming that these rumors were just that…rumors? Are you excited that Dornan will be coming back for a second film or were you hoping that the role of Christian Grey would be recast? Sound off!
