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?

    She doesn’t need to slum it in this turgid crap.

    Dakota’s a really great actress, and she hasn’t turned into one of those terrible Hollywood teenagers. I think she’ll do very well in the movie, and hopefully her acting can take away from Kristen Stewart’s…well, lack of talent.

    I think she’s too good for this kinda movie, but she is a good actress, so sounds good i guess. I liked that the other actors in the movie weren’t big hollywood- at least in my eyes. i wasnt distracted by thinkling this is so and so, just as I think when I see movie Angelina Jolie is in. I don’t know if anyone understands what i’m saying. Dakota has proven worthy. Blah. I’m split.

    This is like when the Broccolis announced Daniel Craig was going to be the next James Bond. People even created websites against it. After he proved himself, he’s one of the best Bonds ever. The same with Dakota. If someone will pull it off, it will be her. She’s the best young Hollywood actress and will make it work.

    I guess we will just have to wait and see if she’ll be good or not. We can’t say we see her as jane just yet guys. You know they’ll do whatever it takes to make her look the part and then the rest is up to her! i’m sure she’ll nail it beautifully. she’s a great actress though i hated her shrieking in the war of the worlds. i loved the secret life of bees, she was wonderful and im sure she’ll be wonderful in the twilight series

    I disagree about Daniel Craig, as his last Bond movie was a bomb and the franchise is currently suffering.

    But to Jessica, aren’t you a fan of the books? I haven’t even read the series, but I’ve read other vampire books, and it should be obvious that a vampire can be 2,000 old but if they were bitten at even 5-years-old, they will still appear that age. So I don’t get the logic that Dakota isn’t ancient enough. On the official website for the Twilight saga, Jane is described as

    “Along with her face being angelic, it is also described as being fiercly childlike. She is in her early teen years.”

    This totally makes sense.

    idk. i guess she could be alright, but i dont think shes old enough for the character.

    LuckyL Says:

    Okay, I shouldn’t say Quatum bombed, rather as it was the worse one so far released critically. Whatever, I still just don’t like Bond as Craig and have read both sides of the reviews, but that is neither here or there.

    cjean Says:

    If you read the books and the official site, you’d know that Jane is very young. While no actual age is given for her, her biography implies she is young teen, if not a bit younger than that.

    Elayne Says:

    Um no. I picture Jane older looking than Dakota. GRR

    viveka Says:

    I’m surprised that so many say she’s too young. I always pictured Jane as being unsettingly young-looking – in contrast to her power, it’s what makes her so creepy. I think she’ll be great in the role.
