Johnson to play lead in romantic drama

Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson has landed her latest role in Forever, Interrupted.

The actress will play the lead part in the romantic drama about a young woman who elopes after a whirlwind romance and then must face the sudden death of her husband.

In coming to terms with the tragedy, she forms a close bond with his mother, who didn't know she existed.

The film is an adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid's Forever: Interrupted: A Novel.

Amy Baer will produce through Gidden Media, while Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake of Good Universe are executive producing alongside Johnson, Roy Lee and John Middleton.

Baer commented: "Taylor's book is exquisitely written and heart-wrenchingly honest. Great romantic drama is so hard to execute, and Taylor nailed it. And Dakota will be exquisite as Elsie, who has to deal with the sudden loss of a great love. She is a deeply thoughtful, sensitive and smart woman and actress."

The highly anticipated big-screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, which stars Johnson alongside Jamie Dornan, will be released on Valentine's Day February 2015.
