It's fifty shades of Don and Melanie!

Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith's  daughter, Dakota Johnson, 23, has nabbed the coveted--and raunchy!--role of Anastasia Steele in Universal's upcoming movie version of the smash book Fifty Shades of Grey, author EL James announced via Twitter on Monday.

Dakota, the actress daughter of Don and Melanie, who were married twice, the second time from 1989 to 1996 (when they produced their daughter), has been featured in The Social Network, 21 Jump Street, and The Five-Year Engagement.

But this is her biggest break yet and Dakota won the role despite such sexy actresses as Angelina Jolie  and Scarlett Johansson reportedly being fans of the book and considering the high-profile role.

Fifty Shades follows a college student, Steele, who engages in S & M sex with billionaire Christian Grey.

The racy book has been a worldwide smash.

Author James also tweeted that British hunk Charlie Hunnam, 33, known for roles on Queer as Folk and Sons of Anarchy, will play Grey.
