Dakota Johnson has been “Our Rock”

Dakota Johnsonis “our rock,”Michael De Luca, one of the hotly anticipated film’s producers, told E! News exclusively on the red carpet at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards tonight. “She’s just so Anastasia Steele. She’s the best partner a producer could have.”

So just how much sway does the 24-year-old Johnson have, now that she’s the sole big name still definitively attached to the project afterCharlie Hunnam‘s sudden exit last week?Well, shedoesget to put the hopefuls to the testthe chemistry test, that is.

“She’s helping us look through the candidates to see which chemistry kind of captures our attention,” De Luca explained.

As for the rumors thatJamie Dornanisthefrontrunnerto replace Hunnam, the producer said that he couldn’t commentbut he says that he really thinks that the role of Christian Grey will be refilled within the next month.

“We’re looking on your website, we’re looking under rocks in Zimbabwe, in space, on the moon. We’re looking everywhere, but I think in a couple weeks it will be announced and everything will be cool,” DeLuca said.

The filmmaker also said that the film based on the eroticE.L. Jamesbestseller, to be directed bySam Taylor-Wood, is still on schedule.

“We’re on track. The release date [Aug. 1, 2014] is preserved and we’re gonna kind of keep going,” he said.

Not that losing Hunnam wasn’t a blow, though.

“Charlie, I think, is an amazing actor of his generation or any generation, and we just couldn’t make it work in the time he had to transform into Christian Grey,” De Luca lamented. “But I think if its meant to be its meant to be. I’m convinced we’ll work together again.”

Sources say that both Dornan, the 31-year-old star of the U.K. seriesThe Fall, and the 28-year-old Magnussen, who was nominated for a best featured actor Tony this year forVanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, tested with directorSam Taylor-Johnsonon Friday. They read opposite female leadDakota Johnson.

The studio is looking to move fast, given that the film is scheduled to begin production Nov. 1 in order to meet an Aug. 1, 2014, release date.

Dakota Johnson is Excited To Meet New Leading Man

While she and Charlie definitely had chemistry, Dakota Johnson is eager to find out who her new Christian Grey will be, HollywoodLife.com has learned.

At first Dakota Johnson, 24, was sad that Charlie Hunnam wouldnt be playing her dominant in the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey, but shes actually now helping the producers find a new Christian Grey!

For Dakota, she was sad that Charlie had to back out but she is very excited to see who will take the role, a source in the industry told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. She is in constant contact with producers and the studio and she is very willing to help out in any way and is looking forward to do readings with everyone who is available for the role. She is taking things well since she is still a part of the film.

Charlie, 33, dropped out of the film after getting cold feet, a source close to the Sons of Anarchy star confirmed to HollywoodLife.com. Additionally, he wasnt yet ready for the fame that was going to come with the daring role.

Meanwhile, Dakota is still 100 percent in the film.

Dakota earned the role and she shouldnt be worried right now. The only time she will have to worry, if at all, is if they hire someone that has no chemistry with her, a source told us. But they are casting the actor with her in mind.

Charlie Hunnam leaves ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

So, Charlie Hunnam has officially dropped out of Fifty Shades of Grey.

The studios statement makes it seem as though he had scheduling issues because hes such a busy actor, but lets be real the only thing he has going on is Sons of Anarchy. Unofficially, The Hollywood Reporters sources also admitted that Charlie was actually intimidated by the amount of attention he received after being cast, and he got cold feet.

This is interesting because movies of this scale always have complicated contracts involved, and his dropping out isnt going to just affect him its also going to affect his leading lady, Dakota Johnson. Dakota was always someone the studio was interested in because she was a fresh face, but one of the biggest reasons she was cast was because of her chemistry with Charlie. Fifty Shades of Grey is purely a love story with lots of sex, and without chemistry, the film isnt going to work. And is Christian Grey, the object of millions of womens wet dreams, or Anastasia Steele, the object of his affections, more important to the movie?

Obviously, its Christian Grey. To the studio and the fans, Christian Grey is a bigger priority. The fan base for the books and films consists almost primarily of women, and to them, its way more important that Christian Grey be gorgeous than Anastasia. Why do you think fans were so willing to protest, sign petitions, and boycott the film if Charlie wasnt replaced?

The studio and filmmakers are probably scrambling to replace him right now, and that means that Dakota will pray for chemistry with the next frontrunner for the role! Fingers crossed.
