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.

He slayed international auds with I Am Love, and now it would appear that Luca Guadagnino is finally moving back into feature films (docs and shorts preoccupied his output during this time) with A Bigger Splash. Joining the set troop of Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes is Dakota Johnson, who obviously brings some sales wattage to the project due to not her bit part beginnings a la For Ellen, but because of her Fifty Shades of Grey office girl.

Shooting starts next month in Italy.

“Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson has joined the cast of “I Am Love” helmer Luca Guadagnino’s next picture titled “A Bigger Splash.” This was the film reported as the untitled “sexy thriller” that would star Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Margot Robbie and Matthias Schoenaerts in May.

“I wanted to tell a love story that takes the idea of Godly romance seriously,” said Rik Swartzwelder, writer-director and lead actor. “A story that, without apology, explores the possibility of a higher standard in relationships; yet, is also fully aware of just how fragile we all are and doesn’t seek to heap guilt upon those of us that have made mistakes.”
Swartzwelder plays a former frat boy and Elizabeth Ann Roberts will portray a free-spirited woman. The tagline is “Chivalry makes a comeback.”
“Opening the same weekend as ‘Fifty Shades,’ there’s definitely a David v. Goliath comparison,” Swartzwelder said. “They will have more screens, more money, more hype . . . but we’re hopeful that we are not alone »
