“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.
