With a launch date now in place, things seem to be progressing a tad bit quicker for the 50 Shades of Grey creative team. However, movie casting rumors still continue to run ramped, as the latest name to resurface in the running for Christian Grey is TRON's Garrett Hedlund.

A recent fan-made trailer (watch below) was posted that portrayed the 28-year-old actor as the S&M-crazed billionaire, and has been receiving a slew of positive feedback.

"He HAS to be Christian Grey, he is so f***king perfect and hot I mean who else could get that role? Love him so <3," responded one fan.

Hedlund began to gain popularity with the females when he appeared on the hit TV show Friday Night Lights, and also received notoriety as the younger brother in the Mark Wahlberg film Four Brothers.

Prior to the video clip, Hedlund had caught the eyes of 50 Shades fans while partaking in a kinky sexual encounter with Kristen Stewart in On The Road.

50 Shades screenwriter Kelly Marcel, who is nearly finished penning the film script, stated that it would be adhering to the context of James' books with lots of sex and raunchiness. Producers are shooting for an NC-17 rating, according to a write-up in Style magazine. 

The film is scheduled to premiere in theaters on August 1, 2014. Be sure to keep checking back for more of the latest details on the racy flick.
