Jamie Dornan


The wait to see Jamie Dornan on the big screen again just became a bit longer.

After his starring role in Fifty Shades of Grey, fans of the actor were looking forward to seeing the star in Bradley Cooper's upcoming film Burnt out next month.

Unfortunately, E! News can confirm his small role has been cut in order to focus on other storylines.

"In making every film, cuts and adjustments in storylines inevitable occur," director John Wells said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. "In the case of Burnt, Jamie's role was a small cameo that he was kind enough to do for us and was part of Sienna Miller's character's backstory. We ultimately decided to focus on Adam Jones' redemption story."

Burnt tells the story of Adam (played by Cooper) who got his start in Paris at just 16 years old.

After a huge failure in his career, the one-time chef prodigy heads to London for a second chance where he meets Miller's character who reportedly had a past with Dornan.

Before any rumors or speculation begin about Dornan's performance, the director insists that the actor did a fine job. Instead, it sounds like a simple change in story .

"I was thrilled to have Jamie," Wells shared. "His performance was fantastic."

As to what's next for Dornan, the Irish actor still has a full plate of projects on the horizon. Along with reprising his role in BBC's The Fall, Dornan will star in the war thriller Anthropoid. And how could anyone forget about those sexy Fifty Shades films?

Earlier this summer, reports surfaced that both Dakota Johnson and Dornan are signed on to star in the three Fifty Shades films. Their contracts, however, reportedly don't include spinoff language in the deals.
