Dakota Johnson is next in line to face the axe from the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, it has been reported.
Soon after the announcement was made that Charlie Hunnam had backed out of playing the male lead role as Christian Grey from a movie that could’ve potentially boosted his career to another level, producers of the film reconsidered their decision on giving Dakota the lead to play Anastasia Steele.
Note that though filming won’t begin until next month, both Dakota and Charlie have already been preparing for their roles together, going through the script and chat about certain scenes and how they were planning to do them.
So the chemistry between them must’ve already been there. The shock Dakota Johnson must’ve faced upon learning that Charlie had dropped out of the film must’ve been a big one because now she’s left blindsided by who will replace him, whether that person is attractive to her (seeing that the scenes are very intimate), and whether they’ll have a connection or not.
It’s already being suggested that producers of the movie are looking out for someone else to be cast as Anastasia, adding that they feel they’ve made a mistake by not picking people that are already well-known movie stars in the business.
Mila Kunis, Nina Dobrev, Angelina Jolie (as if she’d sign up for this trash) were in the running for the role among dozens of others, so who will end up being picked is still undecided, though we’re not entirely sure whether or not Dakota is actually going to receive the boot anyway.
She may even just leave by herself now that her partner has confirmed his exit from the movie before filming even started.
And one shouldn’t forget that the hatred these guys received online was beyond belief – many fans were mad that these two nobodies landed these super huge roles and at the same time “didn’t look anything like Anastasia or Christian,” which were many people’s response.
We shall see what happens. A follow-up statement is expected this week with the new cast member of Christian Grey and whether Dakota Johnson has been axed from the movie too or not.
