Fifty Shades of Complete Disaster

I am admittedly quite late to this story, but then I have rather better things to do than worry about who's starring in the latest godawful stupid idea from a Hollywood studio system that has very clearly run out of ideas:
Charlie Hunnam, the erstwhile star of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” film adaptation has dropped out of the production after he finally got around to reading “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Probably. 
The “Sons of Anarchy” actor last month was cast as the BDSM freak Christian Grey in the movie version of the middle-aged mom porn book, which is widely considered to be an embarrassment to literature and has Thomas Hardy rolling over in his grave. But Entertainment Weekly reported Saturday that the actor dropped out of the film due to “scheduling conflicts.” 
Riiiight. 
The studio said in a statement Saturday, “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.”
Fans of the book were horrified by the casting decision because they actually thought that they could get someone like Ryan Gosling to act in what is sure to be the worst movie of whatever year it will come out.
I have never read Twilight (of Our Civilisation), Fifty Shades of What the F*** is This Crap, or any of the other necrobestial gay-ass vampire novels that are selling in mainstream bookstores these days. But I have to admit that I was practically choking on schadenfreude when I read this. It's always fun to stomp all over the idiotic dreams people with horrible taste.

Unfortunately, this movie will still probably make millions thanks to millions of desperate housewives trying to live out their fantasies vicariously through this crime against cinema...
