Dakota Johnson books trio of roles

Thesp signs up for 'Goats,' 'Engagement,' 'Jump Street'

Exclusive: Dakota Johnson is about to have a busy year ahead — the “Social Network” thesp just booked three roles.

Johnson, the 22-year-old daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, has signed on to “Goats” starring David Duchonvy and Vera Farmiga; Universal’s “Five Year Engagement”; and Sony’s “21 Jump Street.”

She is currently shooting “Goats,” will jump right into “Five Year Engagement” when she’s through, and will follow that up with “21 Jump Street” this summer.

Christopher Neil will helm “Goats,” which tells the story of a 15-year-old leaving his home in the foothills of Tuscon for his freshman year at an East Coast prep school.

“Five Year Engagement” stars Jason Segel and follows the ups and downs of a recently engaged couple. Nicholas Stoller is directing with Judd Apatow and Rodney Rothman producing.

“21 Jump Street” stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill and is a remake of the 1987 Fox series that starred Johnny Depp. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are directing.

Johnson was most recently seen in CBS Films “Beastly” and Sony’s “The Social Network” as the Stanford girl who sleeps with Sean Parker (Justin Timberlake) without realizing who he is.

She is repped by WME and Untitled.
