    Production on the film was delayed after Charlie Hunnam dropped out just weeks before filming began. Dornan, who beat out rumored contenders like Billy Magnussen and Scott Eastwood, eventually replaced the Sons of Anarchy star.

    Since its release, author E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey has been translated in 52 languages worldwide and sold more than 90 million copies in e-book and print. Universal Pictures and Focus Features acquired the film rights in March 2012.
