Some fans have taken to an online petition to express their disappointment with the casting. The petition which boasts more than 17,000 people, is asking for Johnson and Hunnam to be replaced by Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer. Producers stand by their decision for the roles.Producer Dana Brunettitook to Twitter, saying, “There is a lot that goes into casting that isn't just looks. Talent, availability, their desire to do it, chemistry with other actor, etc. So if your favorite wasn't cast, then it is most likely due to something on that list. Keep that in mind while hating and keep perspective."
Sam Taylor-Johnson will be directing the film which is anticipated to be released sometime next year.
