The filming of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword took place between March 2015 – July 2015 and was originally scheduled to be released on 22 July 2016 but Warner Bros. Hunnam learned the story from locals in Romania while shooting Cold Mountain.
It was announced on 2 September 2013 that Hunnam would play the lead role of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of E. He stated that he had not acted in 18 months and was so broke that if he had not managed to sell the script he would have had to sell his house and move back to Britain to live with his mother.
Hunnam then appeared on the large screen in Abandon (2002), Nicholas Nickleby (2002), and Cold Mountain (2003).
Hunnam has stated that he does not wish to simply take any role that he is offered: "I have 60 years to make the money, but the choices I make in the next five years are really going to define my career." This decision resulted in his return to the UK to take the lead role of Pete Dunham in the film Green Street (2005), however his attempts at delivering a Cockney accent resulted in his inclusion in many critics' "worst accents in movie history" lists.
Hunnam was cast after Kurt Sutter, the creator of the show, saw him in Green Street.
