Jamie Dornan 'Getting Fifty Shades Of Grey Profit Share'
New male lead reported to have negotiated himself a percentage cut...
Jamie Dornan is reported to have secured a share of the profits from the movie version of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
The Northern Irish actor, confirmed this week as the replacement for Charlie Hunnam in the role of Christian Grey, is claimed by The Sun to have negotiated a potentially lucrative percentage deal.
And a mole also gave the paper some hints about the reason behind Hunnam's departure.
The source said: "Jamie was approached before Charlie quit on October 12. Producers Michael de Luca and Dana Brunetti had initially thought the chemistry between Charlie and Dakota Johnson was immense.
"But after just a few weeks he had a number of odd requests, including script changes and bodyguards."
And the source also suggested that Dornan had been the choice of Fifty Shades writer EL James.
"Author EL James absolutely loved The Fall and thought Jamie's detached approach in that show was exactly the kind of character she wanted.
"Jamie has played this to his advantage amazingly — he's been very savvy about the deal he's netted.
"A share in the movies' profits will bring in stacks of cash."
Dornan is reported to be on a base salary of £80,000 for the role, with the profit share set to boost his income substantially if the movie proves to be a hit.
