Dakota Johnson has added yet another drama to her future filmography.

With the success of the [Fifty Shades of Grey](movie:391697) trailer being the most watched trailer of this year and one of Universals most watched ever, Johnson is being looked at as a future hot property.

But with this, comes great responsibility which is being taken on ten fold from Johnson it would seem. She's been sticking to the Adler school of 'The talent is in the choices' and sticking with high profile drama because it's fair to say this is where you find the great directors.

So, just wrapping on the Whitey Bulger biopic with Johnny Depp, [Black Mass](movie:852686), going straight into her next acting vehicle as producer with [Forever, Interrupted](movie:1856831) and now she's taking on a leading role alongside Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes with A Bigger Splash; Johnson 'aint takin no prisoners'.

The story is an adaption of a french noir movie from 1969 called La Piscine which follows a doomed love triangle between a couple on vacation and a younger woman.

Check out the trailer for the original below:

If you're wondering what this will feel like modernised, I'd put money on it having a similar atmosphere to something like Anthony Minghella's The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Does this one interest you?
