Dakota Johnson’s career is on a roll! After starring in various flicks that include 21 Jump Street, The Social Network and The Five-Year Engagement, the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith will star in the upcoming film adaptation of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey according to a report by Empire Online.
The younger Johnson will play the lead character, Anastasia Steele. The official announcement came after James who was quoted on Twitter, “I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Johnson will probably be the talk of the town once the film has been released, perhaps she will become a trending topic once the much-awaited steamy and raunchy scenes (if there are any) are shown. Fans may be looking for their bets to play Anastasia but she can be a great choice. She’s got acting running through her veins and can definitely pull it off.
Playing opposite Dakota for the role of billionaire sex god Christian Grey is actor Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy, Pacific Rim).
Will the pair hit it off in the movie?
Aside from Grey, Dakota Johnson will also star in the movie adaptation of Need for Speed which stars Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) while Hunman is set to reunite with Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro on Crimson Peak.
Fifty Shades of Grey is directed by Sam Taylor Wood and written by Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks). It will hit theaters on August 1, 2014.
The lead actors may have surprised everyone, so what do you think of the cast?
