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?

    Lol! The description for Jane sounds exactly like Kirsten Dunst in Interview with a Vampire – other than that I think Dakota’s the best option at the mo, unless there’s is a majorly talented unknown out there (which there probably is But they won’t know about because they didn’t audition!!) But aat least she’s better than Hayden, Hayden can’t really act – I used to really like her as well, but the more I watch heroes, the more I think that she just tries too hard!

    i don’t want her to play Jane.
    she doesn’t seem to fit the part.
    Jodelle Ferland would though.

    I think that Dakota would be a Good Jane, shes’s a great actress, so I think that she would do a great job with Jane

    Dakota is pretty much exactly how i envisioned Jane!
    She just needs creepy eyes and a lot of makeup..

    Hope she gets the role =]

    sorry to say this but NO!
    take smoeone that’s not known, someone that’s new, someone that has a more alice/ ashley looking face.

    my opinion x-( but if it hapen’s it’s just a thing we all have to live with.

    I don’t think Dakota is old enough to play Jane. I think of Jane as being someone older with a little more “vampire experience” under her skin. Dakota just looks too young. I would have picked Kristen Bell from Veronica Mars and Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

    Noooooo!!!! that would be horrible. she dosent even fit the description of Jane! Besides the movie is full of actors who are unique and havent had any other huge parts in other movies. Ugh it was a huge mistake in the first place to make these movies. The original twilight readers (such as I) are the only ones able to get past all this stupid publictiy and remember the true story of it all.

    Dakota’s a good actress, but it’s pretty unfair that to get a role you don’t have to audition for it. What about other actresses who are unknown and might want a shot in being a part of something like this? Maybe she has credibility, but it should still be fair in getting roles for New Moon…everyone should audition!!! And please noooo….that stupid Vanessa Hudgens better not be Leah, because I’ll be damn right pissed!!!!
    If they approach you, it’s a done deal. They recruited her. Why would they be negotiating salary? And this happens all the time btw y’all.

    A million YESSES!!!!

    Idk about anyone else.. but when i read New Moon i ALWAYS imagined Jane to be dakota fanning for some reason … Jane’s character is a little edgy and her new movie Push it looks like she’s capable of playing that kind of girl..
    She’s a great actress she’s done a ton of work ..

    And at the end of the day i hate people that end up saying “i wish they would pick unknown actors” .. like okay that would be great cuz that’s basically what happened with many actors in Twilight .. BUT at the same time they need to pick who’s best for the part..

    Maybe i’m just biased cuz i envisioned Jane to be her. && They don’t give an exact age for Jane anyway so i always imagined her to be around her teen years..
    I hope she plays jane.

    BTW when you’re a great actress you no longer really need to go audition . .the scripts just come to you .. so clearly she’s a great actress if she’s just getting script offers handed to her.
