Dakota Fanning Joins New Moon

Dakota Fanning will star the Twilight sequel New Moon, JustJared.com 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.

Twilight really needs her the rest of the actors still are a bit below par. I will never watch the first twilight again. Not that I expected it to be like the book and I think the story was very good. I dont know if it was the acting or what but it was terrible to watch.

if think that dakota is a good choice. and by the way, she’s a great actress.

dakota is a great actress but I’m soooo disapointed that she acts in a ****** and comercial movie like this only to became more famous, she might have talent, but she is like all the other girls around there

I think Dakota isn’t perfect for the part. She’s only 15, she’s young. I hope she isn’t like Lindsay Lohan or others hollywood children. But i can’t see her like Jane, because in the book this character was totally different. Dakota has blond hair , Jane has brown.

I think she would be great as Jane. When i read the book I didn’t imagine her like Dakota but is okay hahah. And besides, Jane’s role is little, but she cames back in Eclipse so..

First of all, she is not the STAR of the film. Robert and Kristen are as they are the main characters of the whole saga!

Second, since when is Jane a fan favorite? She *spoiler alert* causes people to think they’re feeling pain, especially Edward, and her part is very brief. *end spoiler* I don’t see how that would make her a fan favorite, but okay.

Ugh. I’ll bite and go watch it only because I love the saga and I want to see how this new director does with it.

So glad she got the part.

well i really don’t see the big deal…im a huge twilight saga fan and no matter who plays jane, im only gonna be looking at edward, bella, and jacob. AND BESIDES, JANE ONLY HAS SMALL PARTS ANYWAY……..SHE COMES AT THE END OF THE LAST 3 BOOKS!!!!! SO WHO CARES!!! BUT DAKOTA SHOULD HAVE READ THE FUKIIIN BOOKS!!!!!!!!

Wow, she must really like the books. On the brightside, maybe this will force the rest of the cast to learn how to actually act, otherwise they are going to look ridiculous next to dakota. That girl is a real actress!

twilight was never a great movie imo
i saw it with my friends, and i kinda thought i wasted my money
i dont think it will ever be on the harry potter lvl, as some ppl say
and oh yah i hate dakota =]

the “fight” between InFamous and the other person was pretty funny!!!! I kept reading just to see what they were going to say next lol !!! As for Dakota I really dont want to see her but i guess we have to deal with it

I Love Twilight The Film And The Book
(Whats The Big Deal Your Iver a Fan Of The Film Or Not !!)
And When Twilight Was But Together
Stephanie Meyer Had Agreed To All The Changes That Had To Happen Because It Isnt Easy Putting A Bout 500 Page Book Together And Most Of It Was Bella’s Thoughts And They Had A Time Limit
And DoKota Playing Jane Its Only A Small Role and Part Of NewMoon
And If All The Actors/Ress In Twilight Was Crap Then Why Was Twilight At Number 1 On Box Office For 3 Weeks In The UK / It Was All Sold Out For 4 Weeks !!!!!!!!!!!

YAAY*
i can’t wait ’til november!!
i’m sooooooooo excited:D

Fan favorite ?
thats not true people dont care about jane

she is very talented to be in New Moon :s
noo ! :U

Jane’s part in the book may be small..but in an adapted screenplay scenes of her can and most likely will be added…Dakota is a star and she is not going to just do a five minute scene, regardless of how brief it is in the book.

Dakota is a HUGE plus to the film. I loved her since i saw her in “I am Sam”… and even though she’s only 15 she looks so mature… perfect to play an ancient vampire that looks like a young girl.
I belive that summit should provide a larger budget to the twilight saga… the special effects and action scenes were so poor! and they could have been exploited in a much better way… Besides, expectations are higher now… i mean, when they did twilight they didn’t belive that it would become such a phenomenon, BUT now that the saga is definetly in the spotlight there is no excuse in not increasing the budget!

She isn’t going to be in the movie for very long, she is not an important character in New Moon at all, the part is probably so small there won’t be enough of her to judge.

Not a big fan of hers, but I think she will be perfect as Jane.

i’m more excited to see Dakota and Kristen battle it out in Breaking Dawn…

and hope they will rock it out with The Runaways!!!!!!!!!!

Kristen and Dakota Rocks!!!!!

I think she’ll be perfect for the part. She is an incredible actress, even from when she was very young. I think she’ll do the part justice. Though what i’m curious about is how they’re going to go about the movie when Edward leaves.

urgh… i didn’t think Jane was supposed to be.. what? 12?!!

urgh she’s a bit irritating.

To be honest i cant picture anyone else playing jane but dakota…shes a great actress, i hope the other actors being around her will make them want to rise to the challenge….except rob i think he was exceptional as Edward, he is edward. I never knew twilight was a book till after i watched the movie…and i liked the movie, then i read the book and i was like comparing it…so the movie was definitely better the 1st time. But i am buying the movie anyways. In my opinion i think Kristine will benifit to have Dakota there, hopefully learn a few pointers.
