Jamie Dornan has been confirmed as being cast in the lead role for the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey.

The Fall star will step into the role of Christian Grey which Charlie Hunnam recently withdrew from, citing his busy schedule.

He will star alongside female lead Dakota Johnson, with Sam Taylor-Johnson directing. Shooting is planned to begin in November, and the film will be released in August next year.

The film will be based on the best-selling erotic novel by E.L. James.

Jamie, 31, apparently read for the role on October 18 and has also starred in TV series Once Upon A Time and has just completed filming the Romance Flying Home, where Anthony Head plays his dad.
