Dakota Johnson Is Set to Take on an Even Bolder Role Than Anastasia Steele

The intense shooting schedule that will be required for both Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed is not stopping Dakota Johnson from adding more film credits to her name. Dakota has reportedly been cast as a singer in the upcoming heavy metal film The Sound of Metal. Can she pull it off?


The Sound of Metal will reportedly feature Dakota as the singer in a heavy metal band in which Matthias Schoenaerts (who starred in The Danish Girl and A Bigger Splash) plays the drummer. The group faces a major setback when Matthias's character suddenly experiences hearing loss — that's all we really know about the project so far, and other casting details aren't yet available via IMDb.

The 26-year-old is smart to strike now while the iron is hot. Off the heels of her Fifty Shades of Grey fame, Dakota is taking complete advantage of her "It Girl" status by scoring roles in films like Black Mass with Johnny Depp, A Bigger Splash with Tilda Swinton, and the upcoming romantic comedy How to Be Single, which stars Leslie Mann and Rebel Wilson. She seems to be making an effort not to be pigeonholed as a helpless female character and is surrounding herself with cinematic heavyweights and talented costars.

The gigantic, major, burning question now is: Are Dakota and Kristen Stewart (who is, basically, her film doppelganger in the best possible way) ever going to star in a film together and blow everyone away? I'm kidding. The real burning question is actually: Can Dakota sing?

Allow supermodel Cara Delevingne, who posted this adorable video of her friend Dakota singing a tune, clear up that little mystery:
