NBC-Universal employees have been told the recasting of Christian Grey in the company’s film version of the erotic best-seller ‘‘Fifty Shades of Grey’’ will be finalized in the next few weeks. A company-wide ‘‘town hall’’ on Wednesday covered a variety of subjects but ‘‘Fifty Shades’’ was the inevitable hot topic in the wake of last weekend’s announcement that Charlie Hunnam was dropping out as Grey, according to an NBC-Universal employee who attended the meeting. The source, who requested anonymity because the meeting was private, also said NBCU officials confirmed ‘‘Fifty Shades’’ will still be released next year and that costar Dakota Johnson remains committed to her role as Anastasia Steele.
