Dakota Johnson (right) is a busy woman.

Dakota Johnson apparently has something going for her other than famous parents (Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson), stepfather (Antonio Banderas) and grandmother (Tippi Hedren). You might have seen her waking up next to Justin Timberlake in “The Social Network,” and now she’s got three new movies in the works: “Goats,” with David Duchovny and Vera Farmiga; “Five-Year Engagement” for Judd Apatow, and a role in the buzzy “21 Jump Street.” See, a Miss Golden Globe CAN amount to something.


The final reel
Bryan Cranston will play the mayor of Los Angeles in the film adaptation of “Rock of Ages,” joining an all-star cast of Tom Cruise, Amy Adams, Paul Giamatti, Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand. …  Christoph Waltz re-teams with Quentin Tarantino for “Django Unchained.” … Wes Anderson’s “Moonrise Kingdom” stars Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and, of course, Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray. … Rachel Weisz is in talks to join James Franco and Mila Kunis in “Oz: the Great and Powerful.” … Lisa Cholodenko (“The Kids Are All Right”) will direct a live-action version of the classic kids’ book “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.” … Saoirse Ronan will play opposite herself in “The Host,” the screen version of author Stephenie  Meyer’s “Twilight” followup.
