Is Dakota Fanning cast in 'Twilight' sequel 'New Moon'?
Dakota Fanning, 14, may have been offered the role of Jane, the Volturi vampire in the "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon," according ExtraTV.com.
The teenage actress is reportedly in talks to play the seductive young Italian vampire opposite Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson.
Eonline reports, "There were no auditions. They just offered it to her outright, and now they're in negotiations."
The casting news may totally thrill "Twilight" fans, who have been a bit dismayed at rumors of Vanessa Hudgens (can we can an 'ick?') jumping on the werewolf bandwagon.
One fervent "Twilight" fan even started an online petition calling for the studio to sign up Fanning as Jane.
So far, no official announcement, so this could all turn out to be wishful fan thinking. But we can always hope and pray!
"New Moon" is scheduled to begin filming in Italy this spring.
I could totally see Dakota as Jane. Forget "The Secret Life of Bees." She's great as the telekinetic, dread-locked clairvoyant chick in "Push."
How about you?
