Dakota Fanning Indeed Set For New Moon


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?

I feel that she will be a good choice

I think she'll do a fine job. Jane is creepy and sadistic and I don't doubt Dakota will do a fine job. She's a fine actress and something tells me she can pull off the wicked and spoiled Jane quite well.

I really like Dakota, its just that i think they should have casted new and unknown actors and actresses. It would have probably been a better outcome and better for the fans and the people that are completely and utterly rude about the whole situation.

I wish you all would cast the right people for the right parts!

I can picture her as Jane, but I still think that the Volturi Family is a lot older than what they are casting them to be! I don't like it! I don't I'll see this movie...

I can so picture her as Jane! I kept thinking of Kirsten Dunst too, but in 'Breaking Dawn' I got the impression that Jane and Alec (that's her twin, right?) were a little older than Kirstens' "Interview" character was. Dakota should be the perfect age.

You probably thought of Kirsten Dunst because of her role in the Confessions of a Vampire (:

I wish they had stuck with lesser known actors - especially since the whole movie version is turning into a circus. But, I like Fanning, and I love the books, so I'll watch the movies.

I'm so glad it's not a disney kid but I hate her.

I love Dakota Fanning and I'm sure she'll do a really great job. I had hoped (like some others said) that they'd use lesser known actors and actresses but I guess not.

I just hope they chop her hair off. The first impression we get of Jane is that Bella thought she was a young boy, because the short hair threw her off...

Something about her kind of drives me nuts, but she's a good actress. And I think she can totally pull off the role of Jane.

I wish they kept using lesser known actors but since I probably won't see this anyway, I don't have any reason to complain.

I think it's okay - the only "problem" (it's nothing major at all) I have is that I pictured Jane to be younger than Dakota - but if she plays the part well I will probably forget that :-)

I'm TICKLED that she'll be Jane! Give her some Ice Blue contacts and a stern "burning" gaze, and I won't even want her to look at ME! (If you haven't read the books that won't make sense, if you have then I'm sure you get my meaning)

well i'm sure that they are going to amp up that whole section given that it's basically the one part of the book that edward is in. i hope that they are able to write him in more w/o ruining the story line at all.

I think this'll be great! I absolutely adore Dakota Fanning, and I think she'll be perfect for the role.

That seems perfect. In reading this last year my vision of Jane had a round face and blond hair like her, so that works for me! :)
