Fans Show 50 Shades Of Red Over Casting
The ink had hardly had time to dry on the announcement that British actor Charlie Hunnam and actress Dakota Johnson had been cast to play the leads in 50 Shades of Grey than the outcry began, with thousands of fans of the book taking to Twitter and Facebook and overloading blogs and entertainment websites to denounce the decision. Many voiced displeasure with the fact that the two leads are virtually unknown. Producer Dana Brunetti quickly went online to respond: 'There is a lot that goes into casting that isn't just looks. Talent, availability, their desire to do it, chemistry with other actor, etc. 'So if your favorite wasn't cast, then it is most likely due to something on that list. Keep that in mind while hating and keep perspective, Brunetti said.
