Her face and name might not ring any bells but we've all pretty much seen her on screen and know who her parents are. Remember the girl who wakes up with Justin Timberlake's Sean Parker in his introduction in "The Social Network"? Well, she happens to be the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and she's apparently going places around Hollywood with the model-turned-actress now scoring roles in three upcoming film projects.

Her face and name might not ring any bells but we've all pretty much seen her on screen and know who her parents are. Remember the girl who wakes up with Justin Timberlake's Sean Parker in his introduction in "The Social Network"? Well, she happens to be the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and she's apparently going places around Hollywood with the model-turned-actress now scoring roles in three upcoming film projects.

Johnson is firstly going to feature in the directorial debut of Christopher Neil with "Goats," an adaptation of Mark Jude Poirier‘s 2000 novel of the same name that is set to star David Duchovny, Vera Farmiga, Ty Burrell, Keri Russell, Minnie Driver, Will Arnett and Graham Phillips, who'll star as the teen protagonist. Story centers on "Ellis (Phillips) as he transfers to the East Coast prep school where his father (Burrell) made his mark as a student."

The actress will then follow that with Nicholas Stoller's Apatow production "Five Year Engagement" which already boasts the talented cast of Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Alison Brie, Chris Pratt, Kevin Hart, Lauren Weedman, Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell, Jim Piddock and Jacki Weaver. The film has been described by Segel as something in the vein of "Annie Hall" or "When Harry Met Sally" as it follows the rollercoaster relationship of a couple across their titular pre-wedding period.

Lastly and perhaps most excitingly, we'll see Johnson feature in the remake of "21 Jump Street" to be helmed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs"). The Jonah Hill-championed and starring project has already began shooting in New Orleans with Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Johnny Simmons, Dave Franco, Rob Riggle, DeRay Davis, Jake Johnson and Brie Larson with former star of the television series Johnny Depp to cameo. The R-rated adaptation features a script by ‘Scott Pilgrim’ writer Michael Bacall who had previously and excitingly described the pic as “John Hughes meets ‘Bad Boys.’”

It's not known what roles Johnson will play in any three of the films but, from this trio of casting alone, it's fairly evident that this famous offspring is destined to make a decent sized splash in 2012. Here's that 'Social Network' scene again.
