Dakota Fanning To Star in 'New Moon'

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?

    Jane isn’t 14 years-old!
    Is no one commenting on that fact? I was imagining Jane some.. oh, I dunno.. 20 years older!

    I want to see more of Dakota, and New Moon would be fine.. But.. Jane? That’s so randomm.

    Ummmmmm “Christine” I have to tell you that in the book Jane is actually 12 so she is supposed to be younger.

    ok I think Dakota is an amazing actress and I have no doubt that she could play Jane because she has proven time and time again how great an actress she is. Jane is supposed to look young and be short and skinny so that part of her appearance is not my concern. My concern is the blond hair. I mean I always pictured Jane as a brunette not a blond. But I think just like all of Dakota’s other movies like Push, Hide and Seek, Man on Fire and a few other thrillers she will be great in the role. Hopefully they can find someone who looks enough like her to play Alec.

    OMG! I totally disagree with that !
    it’s just not fair to give a part in a movie with NO AUDITIONS!
    besides, she defenitely does not fit for Jane !
    I just imagined Jane older than Edward, at least! And this girl is only 14 .

    no no no and more NO!

    I’ve heard fans say that her hair is supposed to be blond. I’ve also read light brown. And the last thing I read was dark brown. I guess there’s just too many assertions on which is Jane’s hair color to really be sure.

    This is not right. i know she’s suposed to be petite and youg-ish but she is way to young to play Jane. i think it’s a bad idea to have her as jane.

    absoluetly not. she will take away from the movie and its story.

    cjean Says:

    In New Moon her hair color is described as pale brown. The author has also stated that she and Alec were “changed” very young. The Volturi wanted to wait til they were older, but they were forced to change them while “very young”.

    If you care, go to Twilight Lexicon, and full bios of the characters are assembled from the book and the correspondence with the author. If anyone knows who and what the characters “are”, it would be the author.

    Dakota Fanning fits it perfectly, if anything she’ll be getting a little old by Breaking Dawn.

    She’s a great actress and would be a great Jane!

    Laura Says:

    i like Dakota but i dont think i would like her as Jane, i think Jane needs to be a little more grown up and have kind or a beautiful yet evil look to her like a sly or something like that

    Laura Says:

    Ana Sophia Robb she would be good but i like dakota she can act so w.e

    Twilightlover Says:

    She is NOT Jane! She cant be! She looks like shes 12! I love her as an actress but shes nothing like the Jane i pictured. Plus to find a actor who looks like her to play Alec, would be like impossible.

    Leticia Says:

    well, I’m very surprised about this possibility of dakota play jane, ’cause when the rumors about the cast of new moon have started, I imediatelly thank in dakota as jane volturi. of course, she is a pretty good actress, and I’m sure that she could do it very well.
