Release of ‘Fifty Shades’ postponed
LOS ANGELES: The release of the film version of erotic bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey has been postponed until 2015 after the original male star pulled out, film-makers said.
Industry daily Variety said this week that Universal had changed the release date to February 13, 2015.
Universal was considering pushing back the August date even before British actor Charlie Hunnam pulled out of the project last month.
Hunnam, who was to play Christian Grey alongside Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, was replaced by Jamie Dornan two weeks later. – Sapa-AFP
