Say it isn't so. It looks like Jamie Dornan has quit the Fifty Shades of Grey movie franchise.
Jamie Dornan is pulling out of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie franchise, if the rumours are to be believed.
The long-awaited Fifty Shades movie may be at the top of the box office, but it's been reported that Jamie won't be reprising the role of BDSM-loving businessman Christian Grey in the sequels.
The report was initially made by Australia's NW magazine, which has stated the main reason the actor won't be returning to the film is his wife - and lack of chemistry with co-star Dakota Johnson.
The magazine quotes an insider saying: 'Jamie said the movie would skyrocket his career. He tried to assure Amelia nothing would change but women all over the world now lust after Jamie. She hasn't seen the film and I don't think she will to be honest.'
The magazine also brings up the claims that Jamie didn't click with co-star Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele, saying: 'Jamie does not think his performance was bad - instead he blames Dakota and says it wasn't possible to have chemistry with her.
'He says Dakota gave him nothing to work with.'
With these reports, and the ones about director Sam Taylor-Johnson also pulling out of the Fifty Shades sequels, it's not been a good week for the film.
