Dakota Fanning Joins New Moon

Dakota Fanning will star the Twilight sequel New Moon, has confirmed.

The 15-year-old actress will play Jane, a sinister vampire with an angelic exterior who works for Italy’s evil Volturi.

“I don’t think they’ll have to put a lot of makeup on me,” Dakota has joked of her complexion. “I’m pretty white already.”

Filming for New Moon will start in Vancouver later this month. The movie hits theaters this November.

    not sure when jane became a “fan favorite” but ok
    i’m not gonna say i’m thrilled she got the part, but we’ll have to wait and see if she does it justice i guess…

    I think she´s going to do a very good job. She´s one of the best young actress of our generation. Better her than miley!

    From what I’ve been hearing, the response to her casting has been overwhelmingly positive. And Dakota is turning into a real beauty. The only problem with her casting is that she might steal the movie.
    Think there might be a spinoff of her character?

    lol @ #3 yeah she’s sure a wayy better actress than Miley and true #1 we’ll have to see if she does the part justice. I think she’s a great actress for her age. Not a fan but she’s good.

    I think Dakota is a good choice, As long as this film is better than the last! This was my favourite book, and I just hope they dont mess it about as much as the last. I think the soundtrack was the best part of the last film…sorry guys, but I prefer the books version so far.

    I can’t wait to see her in it, she’s a fabulous actress.

    And on a sidenote, I’m relieved to see Dakota in JJ, Jared, instead of JJR. She’s a real actress and I think she should be taken seriously. She doesn’t belong in JJR, she belongs here.

    Jane fan favourite ?? Please …..

    I think this is getting worse everyday. I only hope this time they pay the visual effects company, cause that “running” (which was jumping except for the wood escene) and the sparkling were just pathetic. I don’t think the movie was very good as a compliment for the books, but was worse as a movie for people that hadn’t read the books.

    But we all know that most of the teenagers watch anything. That’s why an incredible film like Slumdog Millioner was almost not released in cinemas.

    Good to see they finally hired a good actress for these movies…

    Lauren Says:

    I’m sorry.
    But Jane is supposed to be a woman.
    Not a 15 year old girl.
    I don’t see how this is staying true to the book?

    jane is not supposed to be a women, in the book bella said that she was small and looked fragil like a child.

    She’s a good choice and a good actress. I think this movie is a good transition for her. She’s a teen now and she’s doing something that people her age can watch and relate to.
