If the rumours are to be believed the 23-year-old former model, whose dad is Miami Vice veteran Don Johnson, is a "serious contender" to play Anastasia Steele.

A whole heap of famous faces, including Kate Beckinsale, Alexis Biedel, Emma Watson and even Cara Delevingne, have also been linked to the upcoming blockbuster.

BUT Dakota is said to be the favourite because she has hardly any film credits to her name. Let's get to know this girl. Here's all the things you need to know about Dakota for the time being:

1. Her stepdad is Antonio Banderas.

2. She was in The Social Network. She got to pretend to do the dirty with Justin Timberlake.

3. Her one-time lead telly show Ben & Kate was totally cancelled. Ouch!

4. She's not on Twitter.

5. She's got six half-siblings.

We're guessing if she lands the role we'll have more interesting facts for you.
