  • Actors Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman and Kim Coates arrive at the premiere of FX's 'Sons of Anarchy' Season 6 at the Dolby Theatre on September 7, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
We’ve got more Scoopage on why Charlie Hunnam might have dropped out of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

It seems he was worried it was going to be as bad as “Showgirls,” ostensibly ruining his chances to be taken seriously again. Bowing out — good thing he had a “safe word” — has been a big “relief,” an insider told Fox.

Even producers seem worried about the script. Crack screenwriter Patrick Marber (“Notes On a Scandal,” “Closer”) has been hired to buff it up, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
