Dakota Johnson comes from an acting family. She is the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and granddaughter of Tippi Hedren. She starred as Kate in the TV comedy series Ben and Kate (more about her in USA Today‘s story, “Who Is Dakota Johnson?“). British actor Hunnam stars in the FX series Sons of Anarchy.and in Guillermo Del Toro’s  Pacific Rim (more about him in USA Today’s companion story “Who Is Charlie Hunnam?)

The film is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, considered a surprising choice since she has directed only one other feature film (Forbes points out it’s really only surprising because she is female; male directors with light resumes are often handed big-ticket projects).

The movie is currently scheduled for release on Aug. 1, 2014.
