British actor Charlie Hunnam has dropped out of the highly anticipated big-screen version of Fifty Shades of Grey just weeks after being cast as the lead.

According to the film's producers, Hunnam had decided to withdraw because of his busy schedule. 

Hunnam stars in the hit TV series Sons of Anarchy and his preparation time for the role was limited.

"The filmmakers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam's immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey," Universal Pictures said in a statement. 


It's an abrupt and embarrassing switch for a high-profile film. Fans of E L James's erotic best-seller are eagerly awaiting the movie adaptation, which will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. Dakota Johnson remains in the co-starring role of Anastasia Steele. Hunnam's replacement is being sought.

Production on Fifty Shades of Grey is set to start next month, with the film scheduled for release next August.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hunnam reportedly got cold feet about the project. He initially turned down the role of Christian and was becoming increasingly concerned about taking on a role that put him at the centre of a media and fan frenzy.

The Hollywood Reporter said that Universal had been forced to hire bodyguards for the actor.

One person who will be pleased with Hunnam's decision is his girlfriend.

Last month he revealed that she wasn't particularly excited about him filming explicit love scenes with Johnson.

"Of course, it's difficult being with an actor, you know? She is required to share certain parts of me with the world that she wouldn't necessarily choose to do, but we have a great relationship and she loves me and wants to be with me and we've  been together a long time now, and I think she understands and has come to terms with the fact that there are certain elements of me that she is going to have to share. This is an extreme example of that."
