Charlie Hunnam & Dakota Johnson Have 'Incredible Chemistry'!

Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson have landed the coveted lead roles in the Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation and now the movie’s producer has spoken out on why they were cast!

“Auditions were stunning, incredible chemistry!” producer Michael De Luca tweeted to a fan who sent him a message of excitement about the casting.

Charlie will be playing the role of Christian Grey while Dakota will be taking on Anastasia Steele. The characters start a relationship that revolves around S&M sex.

According to The Wrap, the audition process required the couple to do a “chemistry read” where they did a scene on video to convince the executives that they had the right amount of heat. Guess that audition went well!

    Let’s give them a chance before everyone starts bashing them. I know they don’t have the right look now, but maybe with a little movie magic it might not be so bad.

    No matter how many stories you put out there about them and their “chemistry”, it does not hide the fact that they are wrong for the parts. #FLOP

    The book was godawful and truly boring, so who the f… cares. That being said Dakota Johnson is an inspiring choice for the lead…she’s can at least act and she’s got personality. And those who thought any of Hollywoods established stars would be part of this possible bomb fire without a star director attached to direct must have been crazy.

    i love how all the butthurt women are bittching about how their dream-man character doesn’t look like what they imagined

    No way does Hunnan look like Gray. And Dakota Johnson can’t act.

    Oh God! This is career suicide for these 2!! This movie is going to be a flop! These 2 are good actors – shame they’d take these stupid roles!!

    I would wish for better then this for Charlie Hunnam. He’s very talented, but the whole thing just sounds like poison for a serious actor, which he is.

    He looks kind of old for the role. She doesn’t seem to fit. Guess we will see next year how it turns out.

    Charlie seriously really!?!?
    After all those years of carefully picking your roles?! Really!?
    I have to admit though i will see it even if its shite just for Charlie lol
    But I’m a bit disappointed that he’s getting involved with this project
    I just hope that its been seriously changed up and is better than what ive heard about the books lol
    The girl Anastasia looks terribly old for her age and with regards to the dating rumours,people charlie has a girlfriend who he’s been with for about 6 years now.

    Charlie Hunnam is a very talented actor and if you have watched or watch Sons Of Anarchy or seen Pacific Rim you know that. Not to mention he’s so handsome and has a terrific body. Love sexy eye candy Charlie and he is a great pick for the part.

    Not too interested in the movie now. This couple isn’t that exciting or tempting to see on the big screen. Someone said that we would be disappointed. Guess that was true.

    Lauren Says:

    Never heard of either one of them, but his eyes are really close together. He doesn’t look anything like how Christian Grey was described.
