Dakota Fanning: New Moon Possible

Dakota Fanning: New Moon Possible

Dakota Fanning is getting closer and closer to sinking her teeth into the Twilight fandom.

The 14-year-old Coraline actress is in talks to play the role of Jane, the Botticelli blonde vampire with an angel-like face, in the sequel, New Moon. Dakota talked to Access Hollywood earlier today (January 24) about the role. She shared, “I think it’s too soon to tell if I’ll for sure be doing it, but it’s so great. I’m a really big fan of that series and the first film and all the actors in it, so it would be wonderful.”

Dakota even joked with the entertainment show: “I don’t think they’ll have to put a lot of makeup on me. I’m pretty white already.”

A rep for Summit Entertainment, the company behind the hit cult Twilight films, confirmed that Dakota is indeed being considered: “We are considering all actors that have the unique requirements for the look of Jane — Dakota being one of them.”

hm..this is gonna be interesting..

i think she’s adorable and i’m a fan of hers but i dont think big name actors should be in this series. i think theyre just doing it because they know its a hit so itll make them even more famous. i think its a career/money move.

I think Dakota Fanning is a really bad actress. Her acting is just as good as a life sized, human-shaped, cardboard. She always has this “deer-caught-in-the-headlights” look on her face and suddenly people think she’s a good actress just because she stars in movies with A-list celebrities! This is ridiculous.

hmm @ 8:41 pm on 01/24/2009

i think i might like to see her in this one…she really, really does fit the role physically, anyways.

obama is my president

aw @ 8:53 pm on 01/24/2009

She gets some pretty good roles and roles in which she is usually the star. So it’s kinda weird she would do this, oh well. And lmao it’s not like having the ability to act is a prerequisite for this movie series.

caitlin @ 8:55 pm on 01/24/2009

i really like her i think she is an awesome actress and is really talented so im sure she will do well in the role of jane

she would ruin it, honestly.

lexi/not a totaltwilight hater @ 10:48 pm on 01/24/2009

err why does everyone like twilight so much…it;s not the movie i dont like, i mean all the actors are great, and the crews good but the books…THEY ARE NOT WELL WRITTEN! the plot’s okay (although done before just in a different way-total romeo/juliet type story) but stephenie meyer is NOT A GOOD WRITER! She makes Bella so WHINY even my twilight fan friends think so! and its a very SIMPLE book-simple in a bad way! whats complex about it? i dont love harry potter-but those books have more than an OUNCE of complexity,and will be around a lot longer then twilight. twilight’s basically only good for promoting abstinence, but bella is filled w/ sexual tension with Edward and in the end they do have sex (even though married) unprotected sex that gives them a baby, which basically promotes teen pregnancy (she’s still pretty young). i read the book once, and didn’t finish. i do applaud stephenie meyer for making a suspenceful book(total page turner) just a wish SO BAD that everyone would stop treating it like its Harry Potters second coming! it’s not. it’s not a great book and one day all you fans will realize the error of your ways but till then happy reading! i dont hate you if you like the book, i’m glad alot of people are actually enjoying reading, but i don’t like the book and i wanted to vent because it seems like no one feels the same way.

ps…dakota fanning would definitely brighten up new moon
would love to see her in it

riana @ 10:48 pm on 01/24/2009

id luv her in twilight- she allready looks the perfect part- i dont think anasophia robb culd even pull it off but she can shes definately had more experience!

Ella @ 11:47 pm on 01/24/2009

Wow… Interesting.. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see..

Manage to get everything off your chest #13?

sarah @ 12:35 am on 01/25/2009

i agree #13, i don’t understand all the hype over twilight. it’s poorly written and it’s a joke that people are calling it the next harry potter.

arantxa @ 12:39 am on 01/25/2009

i like how she acts
but i dont think she should be on New Moon :(

. @ 12:41 am on 01/25/2009

Whatever happened to people saying “stick with the newcomers and stay away from the already famous celebrities!”

And, why do people keep saying the “rumored people” that will join Twilight will ruin the movie??

FYI: THE MOVIE ALREADY RUINED THE BOOK!!! I’m pretty sure Stephenie Meyer is secretly disappointed with the movie since none of her ideal characters are in it.

gradyB @ 12:54 am on 01/25/2009

Kristen Stewart and Nikki Reed were not newcomers when cast. Pattinson was in 2 Harry Potter fims. The main bad guy, Cam Gigandet, had a big part in The O.C. as well as Never back Down.

Twilight HAD name actors in the movie. New Moon would be lucky to get Dakota.

zeeky5678 @ 1:04 am on 01/25/2009

wow, um, is it just me, or does it seem like we have WAAAY to many book purists on here? i mean, movies can only be so close to the book, you know maybe if you’d quit expecting so much from the movies you wouldn’t get as let down you guys, just keep your expectations low, and maybe you’ll be surprised, Chris is a really great director and im sure he can pull off a great adaptation, he did Golden COmpass, and even though the film was completely rearranged, it was done in a way that could work. i still think it’s absolutly hilarious the fcat that all the twilight fans are over here whining about dakota fanning being in the film, WHICH SHE SHOULD BE, oh, and please do shut up, about the fact that she’s famous, omg, why don’t you use your imagaination when your watching the movie, pretend she’s NOT dakota fanning, which in movies we’re all supposed to pretend that those are real people on the screen not actors, apparently twilighters don’t know how to do that. seriously though, why don’t you go make sure the film is actually getting made correctly, plot-wise, stroy-wise, and focus on the main characters instead of something as small as this. i still think the whole issue is hilarious seeing everyone freak out over something so small. Oh, and to all of you who said they just gave her the role, READ THE FINE PRINT, it’s right there in the article! “We are considering all actors that have the unique requirements for the look of Jane — Dakota being one of them.” do you twilighters know what THAT means, no way, it means that Dakota’s not the ONLY one they’re offering the part too, omg, common sense! of course she’s not the only one, casting director’s aren’t that unfair, it’s just sometimes, there’s people they want more than others (Dakota) so they talk to them first, if they aren’t interested who knows maybe some of you ordianary people calling dakota a bad actor can go do a better job yourselves, because the ONLY reason you should EVER tell someone they’re bad at something is if YOU can do the same thing better, so good luck with that you guys, and i’ll just be setting back here, enjoying you all STILL ignore me, and STILL freak out over this.


wtf @ 2:14 am on 01/25/2009

uhh i dont want her in the series
that would just ruin it for me, i pictured jane older than 14
i really hope they get someone else

b chick @ 3:09 am on 01/25/2009

i honestly dont care if they pick her or not.
she is going to do such a small part that doesnt even make a difference to me..
im more worried about seeing how rob pattinson, kristen stewart and taylor lautner are gonna act, cause things are going to be WAY different in the second movie

[ and for those people that say twilight is poorly written , i'd like to see u write something and sell millions of copy, the story is amazing and so is the writing so before u start saying its bad do something better..]

Sofia! @ 7:31 am on 01/25/2009

dakota would make a great jane but i agree with #10 anna sophia rob is an excellent actress too, she’s perfect for the role though i think dakota has that vampire thing physically

erica @ 9:45 am on 01/25/2009

zeeky5678, i couldn’t agree with you more. now i am a huge twilight fan and you’re totally right. with there were more people who thought that way.
