Producer of the upcoming erotic film '50 Shades of Grey' has revealed that he wants a fresh face as a replacement for Charlie Hunnam.

Michael De Luca told the Los Angeles Times that he feels that everyone has an idea of what these characters look like and sound like, so it is best to present the world with fresh faces without any pre-conceived notions or baggage, Us Magazine reported.

De Luca said that it is like casting Superman or James Bond, where a fresh face is appropriate.

However, the producer has declined to reveal the frontrunners for the role of ‘Christian Grey’, but he insisted that Dakota Johnson will be staying in the film.

De Luca added that he believes Johnson can have chemistry even with a mailbox but they are going to help her out in picking up the right person to be cast opposite her.
