Now it’s official. Dakota Johnson is all set to play Anastasia ‘sub’ Steele in the movie, Fifty Shades of Grey. Finally, this cutely blonde agreed to play a submissive Anastasia opposite actor Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey. Actress Dakota Johnson, daughter of actor parents Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, will play the role, outshining other big names of Hollywood. Author E.L. James tweeted gladly, “I am delighted to let you know that lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the movie adaption of Fifty Shades of Grey.” So, get ready, sexy shades of “Dakota” will hit the movie screens.
Before exposing the sexy shades of her, this cute, gorgeous blonde has already hit the screens many times but we just chose to ignore. She was in The Social Network as Justin Timberlake’s one-night stand. The producers of that film, Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, are producing Fifty Shades of Grey. So, audiences will have a chance to see her become more sexy in no time!
Since her acting debut in 1999 film Crazy in Alabama, she didn’t look back; she always had a reserved seat from The Five Year Engagement to 21 Jump Street. Now, she is the body of Mango’s denim line. It’s her turn to show off a kinky side through acting as sexy shades of Anastasia will be revealed on screen.
The critics and experts have already started to think that she will make a good “Ana” for various reasons. In the book, Anastasia describes herself as, “A pale, brown-haired young woman with blue eyes too big for her face.” Dakota is also blonde and has blue eyes. Dakota, like Ana, is 5’7″ and petite. Ana’s lip biting is part of her blend of childlike, and erotic, actions that turn Christian on; something that Dakota can slip into.
Though she made her debut a decade ago, her screen appearances are few and far between. Since the film is replete with erotic sex and BDSM, a new actress was truly needed. Now, she needs to play submissive to the “dominant” Christian Grey. She has to deal with a lover who likes to stick silver balls into the naughtiest places. Since the book contains explicit sexual themes, bondage, dominance and submission, so will the movie. Dakota, as Ana, will have to be a bit rough and tough, damaging the cutesy outer façade. We expect the two will have a mind-blowing chemistry when the film is finally released.
For now, we have to wait and watch. If the movie adaption follows the book intensely, it will make a history in Hollywood. A book, replete with sex scenes, is still not a book of a blue film. People will go see it to eye the steamy scenes while surely comparing the book with the movie. It will be a big challenge for actors and directors to keep the main story vivid. A human heart is simply drawn to food, danger and sex, and this film must adhere to that allure. Sexy shades of “Dakota” will hit the big screens with many expectations and she has to fit the bills.
