Turns out the rumors are true about Dakota Fanning's involvement in the next Twilight movie, New Moon. Back in January, EW reported that Fanning had been offered a role, and now it's official: Fanning will play Jane, "a sinister vampire with an angelic exterior who works for the Volturi." I wonder if this means they'll be beefing up the Volturi sequences in Italy for the movie, which I think might be a wise choice.
For some reason, as I read New Moon I kept picturing Kirsten Dunst's little vampire role in Interview With a Vampire as Jane. But Fanning is certainly good at angelic and sweet-seeming. I bet she'll have fun with this role. Thoughts, Twilight fans?
