Fifty Shades gets a new Christian Grey

Jamie Dornan

"Fifty Shades of Grey" fans can breathe a sigh of relief; a new Christian Grey has been found.

Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan has been picked to play the billionaire heartthrob after Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam backed out of the film in mid-October.

Hunnam reportedly left the film due to a scheduling conflict.

Dornan is in negotiations now to play the character that captivated the world in the best-selling series.

Dornan is known for his role as Sheriff Graham in ABC's "Once Upon a Time" and currently stars as a serial killer in the Northern Irish drama series, "The Fall." The former Calvin Klein model also dated Keira Knightley for two years.

Production for the film is slated to begin November 1 in order to meet its projected August 1, 2014 release date.
