Fifty Shades of Grey beauty Dakota Johnson has become one of those stars who is forever going to be remembered for that one role in particular, no matter what she did before being cast in the role of Anastasia Steele in the hit movie franchise, and no matter what she does in the future. That is just something that happens to a star who takes on a big role in a big movie franchise, especially one that also has a huge book following.
Anyway, with that said, Dakota Johnson does still have a lot of new movies that are set to come our way in the near future, keeping herself very busy indeed, as it has now been confirmed that she has signed up to star in yet another new project. Dakota has agreed to appear alongside a rather interesting cast, in the upcoming new movie The Peanut Butter Falcon, which we are very intrigued about.
The Peanut Butter Falcon is described as, "an adventure story set in the world of a modern Mark Twain that begins when Zak (22), a young man with Down syndrome runs away from a nursing home where he lives to chase his dream of becoming a professional wrestler and attending the wrestling school of The Salt Water Redneck. Through circumstances beyond their control Tyler (32), a small time outlaw on the run becomes Zak's unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whisky, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (28), a kind nursing home employee with a story of her own to join them on their journey."
While Dakota Johnson is the newest face to join the cast of the movie, The Peanut Butter Falcon does already have such Hollywood stars as Shia LaBeouf, Bruce Dern, Zac Gottsagen, and Jermaine Rivers signed on to appear in the film. The Peanut Butter Falcon will be directed by Tyler Nilson and Mike Schwartz, who also penned the screenplay for the movie, with a release date to be decided at a future time.
