Charlie Hunnam out, Leonardo DiCaprio in? If director Oliver Stone was casting Fifty Shades Of Grey, he'd certainly consider the A-list actor.
Stone didn't offer up much reason as to why he thinks the 38-year-old Great Gatsby star is the right actor to portray the S&M Seattle billionaire, but he did tell The Wall Street Journal of Leo, "He'd make a fortune."
While the 67-year-old Oscar winner is busy promoting his ten-part documentary Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States, producers for the Fifty Shades are busy re-casting a leading man for the erotic-book-turned movie after Hunnam, 33, announced this past week that he was backing out of the project.
"The filmmakers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam's immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey," said the statement released by Universal Pictures and Focus Features of the Sons Of Anarchy star.
Do you think Leo would make a good Christian Grey? Let us know, below.
