Dakota Johnson has picked another film full of sexual tension to star in following Fifty Shades Of Grey.

The actress has signed up to appear in a remake of the French crime thriller La Piscine , renamed A Bigger Splash and directed by I Am Love helmer Luca Guadagnino, according to Variety.

Dakota has shot to fame since being cast for the raunchy lead female role in the adaptation of EL James's erotic novels.

Even though the film isn't set for release until February 2015, she is already lining up her next project.

The actress will star alongside Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes in the tale about a couple who befriend a younger woman on holiday, leading to a sinister end.

La Piscine was originally made in 1969 and starred Jane Birkin as the younger woman.

The recently-released Fifty Shades Of Grey trailer has become the most viewed trailer of 2014.
