Fans are refusing to take the 50 Shades of Grey casting news lying down. In fact, a group of 50 Shades fans have come together to create a petition demanding that Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam get fired.
Less than 72 hours after EL James made the announcement on Twitter, fans worldwide are reacting with minimal excitement to the news. Now E! News reports that a group of fans have set up a petition on Change.org demanding that Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel be recast as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele respectively.
“Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE And I read the whole trilogy and I can assure that Matt is the perfect actor for this movie and Alexis too,” the petition reads. “So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING.”
The petition has received nearly 23,000 signatures so far. It is unclear if the petition will cause James and the rest of the 50 Shades of Grey production team to waver.
