When E.L. James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey” books hit the market, there was an immediate demand for a film adaptation.

But now that the main cast members have been announced, fans of the erotic novels are divided on their opinions of Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson.

Producer Dana Brunetti felt a bit like a target after receiving flack for the selections, and took to Twitter in response.

Brunetti re-tweeted, "@DanaBrunetti knows how @BenAffleck feels today. There's a reason these guys are successful people. #chillthef—kout"

Dana followed it up with, "Thx to all the fans of @E_L_James FSOG for their overwhelming support of the casting choices. @MichaelDe_Luca &I can't wait to start filming. There can only be one... and it is done.
