You have probably heard the rumors by now. Several sources claim the actor was searching for a way out of his Fifty Shades of Grey contract. They claimed he didn’t want to reprise his role as Christian Grey for the sequel that is bound to happen.
However, Dornan’s rep talked to PEOPLE yesterday, forcing a little bit of truth down our throats.
“Jamie is delighted that the film is breaking box office records worldwide and whilst the studio has not made any formal announcements about sequels, he is looking forward to making the next film.”
The rep also made it clear that this is the only statement Dornan will be making about the rumors. It appears the rumors originated in an Australian magazine. The magazine claimed Dornan was looking to leave the franchise because his wife was uncomfortable with the sex scenes.
Which doesn’t make a lot of sense because everyone was complaining about the lack of chemistry between Dornan and his 25-year-old costar Dakota Johnson. His wife should be thrilled about that.
As of right now, the studio has yet to green light a sequel, but we imagine it’s just a matter of time before they do. Yeah, the film dropped significantly in its second week at the box office; however, it’s grossed over $400 million worldwide.
That pretty much guarantees a sequel.
