Fifty Shades Of Grey film will start shooting in December, a month later than expected.

The abrupt exit of lead actor Charlie Hunnam has led to delays in production, which has pushed back the filming start date, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Sam Taylor-Johnson's big-screen adaptation of EL James' erotic novel had been scheduled to start shooting in early November, but is now expected to begin filming on December 2.

The Fall star Jamie Dornan is set to play kinky billionaire Christian Grey, alongside Dakota Johnson as his love interest Anastasia Steele in the film, which is being written by Saving Mr Banks' screenwriter Kelly Marcel.

True Blood actor Luke Grimes has joined the cast to play Christian's brother Elliot, while Jennifer Ehle has been cast as Anastasia's mother.

The Fifty Shades Of Grey film is set for a release date of August 2014.

Charlie decided to leave the movie, citing his busy schedule and family commitments.
