Dornan for Fifty Shades Of Grey?

Jamie Dornan is poised to play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades Of Grey film.

The Fall star is heading towards becoming Charlie Hunnam's replacement in Sam Taylor-Johnson's big-screen adaptation of the EL James novel following negotiations for the role, reported Variety.

The 31-year-old reportedly "read" for the part on October 18 opposite female lead Dakota Johnson, who is on board to play Anastasia Steele, for the director, author and producers, sources told The Hollywood Reporter.

Insiders added that Tony-nominated actor Billy Magnussen also tested, along with Francois Arnaud from The Borgias.

Jamie - an actor and former model from Northern Ireland - was named as one of the contenders for the part of the wealthy billionaire earlier this month, after Charlie announced his departure from the movie citing his busy schedule.
