Eastwood's son for 50 Shades role?

Scott Eastwood is the latest actor tipped to replace Charlie Hunnam in the Fifty Shades Of Grey film.

The newcomer, the son of Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood, is currently in the running for the coveted role of Christian Grey, reported Just Jared.

A source said: "He is one of five actors being considered."

Scott, 27, fuelled the rumours by tweeting: "What is all this talk about 50 shades of grey?? What do you all think?? Let me know. #hype #eastwoodlivin."

The actor made his debut in his dad's film Flags Of Our Fathers in 2006.

Colin Farrell has brushed off any interest in the role. The Irish star, who had been linked to the part, denied he would like to play Christian at the world premiere of Saving Mr Banks, saying: "No. I think that ship has sailed."

Sons Of Anarchy actor Charlie was due to star in the eagerly anticipated movie opposite Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele but dropped out earlier this month, citing his busy schedule for his exit. It was later reported that there had also been "creative conflicts" over the script.

The Fall star Jamie Dornan, True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard and Christian Cooke have also been tipped to be among the frontrunners for the Grey role.

The movie version of author EL James' erotic best-seller will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.
