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?

    Kate Says:

    She’s too young ? no ?
    I admit she is a good actress, but she is only 14 !
    Jane is an adult !

    Actually thats pretty good..Shes a VERY good actress..look at hide n seek and war of the worlds..shes awesome
    but i always imagined jane as being really older like 30 in looks
    The only one bad thing is that dakota seems to sweet to be a vampire
    but they may make her look like one with makeup and stuff

    The first casting choice I am really satisfied with. I know many of you out there think that Rober Pattison and Taylor Lautner are hot and I do not disagree in general. Only, they look nothing like I imagined Edward and Jacob to look when I read the books. The same goes for most of the cast with the only exception so far being Alice. When I read this about Dakota, I was like: “Yeah, she’s TOTALLY Jane!” And she’s a good enough actress that I think she’d be able to pull off the ‘diabolic grin on an angel face’ stuff. I hope she takes it.

    PS Don’t hate me, Rob and Taylor fans, it’s just my perosnal, subjective opinion.

    I love Dakota, she’s one of my favorite actresses, but to me, she doesn’t look like she could play a vampire. Her face looks too.. idk sweet? I haven’t read any fo the Twilight books so I wouldnt know anything about the character they’re offering her, but I think they should offer the role to an incoming actress. That’s just me. But if Dakota accepts it, good for her, I know she can pull off anything!

    huh Says:

    i’m not really a fan of dakota but i’m not really against her or anything but i somehow don’t think she’ll fit into the role of jane.

    dee Says:

    why would she want to be new moon. she shouldn’t waste her talent on that. but if the new directors good, and they get a bigger budget….

    RYAN Says:

    NO NO NO WAY, dakota is going to take the fantasy and mystery out of Twilight

    ashley Says:

    I don’t know why but I thought Jane was a bit older. I guess. We will have to see. I think it would be odd to see such a well known actress in New Moon.

    JJ Says:

    indiesr Says:

    I love her, I really do, she is one of my favorites. But they should stick with less-known actors for these series.

    k Says:

    No, definately no,it would remind me to much of a young Kristen Duntz in Interview with a Vampire.

    nurry Says:

    Somehow i imagined Jane to be way younger for some reason but i think Dakota will do great! Shes a great actress no doubt.

    Labbo Says:

    I like her as an actress and all, but I really don’t see her as Jane. I just don’t think she’s right for the part.

    seriously? Says:

    Vampires in Stephanie Meyer’s books do not have fangs Jared!!

    I could see her doing the roll…though I think a better choice would be AnnaSophia Robb…she definitly knows how to do creepy!
