Sorry, Sons of Anarchy fans. You won’t be seeing Charlie Hunnam engaging in those steamy sex scenes in the Fifty Shades of Grey film. According to a statement by the movie studio, Hunnam has dropped out of the role due to scheduling conflicts.
“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.”
The author of the popular book series took to Twitter with the news as well.
Okay girls and boys – hold on to your hats – it's about to get serious…

No word yet on who will fill those expensive suits as Hunnam’s replacement.
