Jamie Dornan may not do any more Fifty Shades of Grey. The actor has announced that he is thinking about quitting his role as Christian Grey, and it is reportedly due to his wife. It is unclear whether these are currently just rumors or whether there is any truth to them.
The news has led to many mixed reviews. Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey want to see Dornan stick around, and are angry that his wife is reportedly uncomfortable with the role. According to reports, Amelia Warner does not like the erotic, sexual scenes and has asked him to leave. Despite telling her that nothing would change between them, she knows that there are now woman around the world lusting after her husband. Dornan explained that she has not yet seen the movie, and probably will not.
There have been many mixed reviews over Fifty Shades of Grey, but a lot of them are negative. Critics have said that the storyline was poor and there was no chemistry between the characters. Dornan said that it was not his fault, but the lack of chemistry with Dakota Johnson was due to her lack of chemistry with him. She gave him “nothing to work with.”
That could be another reason for leaving the role. He wants to be able to act, and finds it difficult when the other person is not acting with him. Whatever the reason, it is bad news that Dornan may not do anymore Fifty Shades of Grey.
The second two movies have been confirmed, and Dornan was expected to be in both. They will be adapted from the second two books in the Fifty Shades trilogy written by E.L. James. However, there are now rumors that the relationship between the author and film’s director Sam Taylor-Johnson is fragile. That could cause problems for a future movie. One of the rumors is that James wants to write the screenplays for the next two movies, but Universal was originally resistant to that idea. Now, the company is reportedly considering it.
Dornan will have to come to a decision very soon, so Taylor-Johnson can search for a new Christian Grey if she needs to. The second movie was supposed to begin filming in June in Vancouver.
Fans have already taken to social media to get Dornan to reconsider the role. Many are angry at Warner for making him make this decision. One fan went as far to tell Dornan to divorce his wife over this matter. One blogger even said that Warner would have known what the role meant. Even if she had not read the books, she would have heard enough about them.
Again, these are all just rumors at the moment. Dornan has not spoken out about his decision, or confirmed the reports that he is looking into quitting the role. It is possible that the news has been “leaked” as a way to create more fire around the movie series. Despite it doing so well in the first weekend, people are not spending the money on it that was expected. Saying that Dornan may not do Fifty Shades of Grey anymore could be a way to spice up the public to go see it.
