Dakota Johnson Will Make A Bigger Splash

31 July 2014 5:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once upon a time, landing a ‘highly exposed’ role in a hotly anticipated film was the easiest way to hit the fast-lane to type-casting hell. While that can still happen all too easily, it seems that Dakota Johnson – the young star of the forthcoming big screen adaptation of 50 Shades Of Grey – is consciously taking a different route. Having apparently shunned offers of bigger budgeted fare, she has instead signed on for A Bigger Splash, with Academy Award nominee Ralph Fiennes and Oscar winner Tilda Swinton.

The film is an adaptation of the 1969 French film, La Piscine, and features a tense love triangle that develops between an older couple and a younger woman during a vacation. Tragedy inevitably ensues. With Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) at the helm, the script comes from David Kajganich, who previously wrote 2007’s The Invasion – itself an adaptation of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers.
