There are certain roles in every actors career, which will go on to define them, with the role almost becoming bigger than the star who is playing it. In the case of actress Dakota Johnson, it would be fair to say that role is as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, a role which she will reprise for Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed over the next few years.
However, while Dakota Johnson is going to find herself being spoken about mostly due to her Anastasia Steele commitments over the coming years, there is so much more to her than just that. Dakota has a number of new and exciting movies coming our way and, while they might not get her the same amount of attention, they certainly show what a true acting talent she is.
Dakota Johnson will star in the lead role of the movie Chloe and Theo, which will see actor Theo Ikummaq playing the male lead, with the movie set to open on August 28 in the US. Following that, Dakota will star in the movie Black Mass, which boasts a very impressive cast including Adam Scott, Johnny Depp, Corey Stoll, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Juno Temple, and Kevin Bacon, among others, with a release date set for September 18 in the US and November 13 in the UK.
As well as that, we will also see Dakota Johnson in the movie How to Be Single, which co-stars Leslie Mann, Alison Brie, Damon Wayans Jr, and Rebel Wilson. How to Be Single is currently filming and is scheduled for a February 12, 2016 release date. Finally, Dakota has also been linked to the planned movie Forever, Interrupted, which will be based on the Taylor Jenkins Reid novel. We look forward to it.
So, while many of you are continuing to refer to Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, remember that she has plenty more movie projects coming our way, and has so much more to her than just that.
