Dakota Fanning To Star in 'New Moon'

Dakota Fanning is likely to star in New Moon, the upcoming sequel to Twilight.

E!‘s Marc Malkin reports the the 14-year-old actress is well on her way to play Jane, a member of bloodsucking killer group Italy’s Volturi. The casting notice describes Jane as a petite blonde with a “Botticelli angel-like face…[and] crimson irises.”

“There were no auditions,” a source reveals. “They just offered it to her outright, and now they’re in negotiations. They’ve been going back and forth.”

DO YOU THINK Dakota makes for a good vampire — YAY or NAY?

    SECOND!

    You know what? At first I was going to complain that they shouldn’t use a mainstream actress for twilight but I think Dakota will do a splendid job as Jane. She’s a great actress.

    i like her and shes an amazing actress but i don’t think she would be good at something like that and compared to all the other actors and actresses going to be in new moon she looks like she would look like a 12 year old(they made taylor lautner gain like 29 pounds to keep his role that wouldn’t be fair)

    nobody can say she can’t act! seriously shes more talented than all the popular young hollywood stars,, well when it comes to acting. i think she’ll do just fine in the movie. people shouldnt make too much out of it by saying she would ruin it or something like that.

    i think she’s be great as Jane. ok, so maybe she is a little too well known to get sucked into the franchise and steal the limelight from the original cast, but she is a legitimate talent, and it would be a great cameo for the movie. i am just glad its not someone as ****** as vanessa hudgens.

    It had to be muscle though, and since guys can gain muscle easier and muscle weighs more than fat, it probably wasn’t too unfair. I really am happy for Dakota and I used to not care for her in the least. I just love how she’s blossomed though and is ALWAYS age appropriate.

    i actually think she’d make a great jane. i was hoping for maybe hayden but honestly, i can see dakota doing a great job. she’d make an awesome vampire. i totally support this decision!
