'50 Shades of Grey' Movie Rumors: Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam MISSING from Film Poster [UPDATE]
When it comes to the cast of the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey movie, rumors are always flying. This was especially true when the first poster from the film was released. Dakota Johnson, who will be playing Anastasia Steele, was noticeably absent from the promotional poster. Many are wondering if it's the negative fan backlash, the same that caused Charlie Hunnam to abandon the role of Christian Grey, that's the reason Dakota wasn't featured.
The poster features only Jamie Dornan, who replaced Charlie as Christian. The actor is shown standing in front of a large window that overlooks a major city.
The only words on the poster, aside from the 2015 Valentine's Day release date and the website URL for the movie, is:
"Mr. Grey will see you now."
Many are disappointed that the poster wouldn't be more erotic in nature. As it turns out, they may be disappointed with the film for the exact same reason.
Michael De Luca, producer of the film, recently opened up at Sundance, where he revealed that the film will be more tame than the novel (via Deadline):
"We're very conscious of not making anything gratuitous or exploitive while being faithful to the stories of the book and to 5o9a0132the fans of the book. We're going to give them what they expect, which is an intense and erotic love story. Obviously the film can't be as explicit as the book. A picture is worth a 1000 words. So to be erotic onscreen means I think an image is going to have way more power than reading the words on a page."
Dakota might not be in the poster, but Charlie Hunnam won't even be in the movie. Just weeks before filming was scheduled to commence, Charlie dropped out of the film.© 2016 The Classical Art, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
