Ok, so I don't know if it's real, but from what I'm reading, it all sounds legit. We'll wait and see ok, so don't freak out if you don't like the idea, or don't jump up and down because you are so happy.... YET! Let's wait for the official casting...>_<

According to E! Online, Dakota Fanning is in talks to play a vampire in New Moon, the highly anticipated sequel to the box office sensation Twilight. She would join the cast as a supporting role across from Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

The 14-year-old actress (she’s 15 in February) is up for the role of Jane, a member of an elite vampire coven. Jane is a Volturi guard member able to create illusions of pain. In the casting notice, Jane is described as a petite blonde with a “Botticelli angel-like face” and “crimson irises.”

Fanning may be the ideal choice since they’re looking for a tiny actress to be the one of the most intimidating characters among the powerful vampires. Love her or hate her, she’s actually perfect for the part. We should get a better glimpse of “Dakota with super powers” in her next movie, Push.

If you like the idea, the article also points out an online petition asking Summit Entertainment to consider Fanning as Jane. It currently has 55 signatures.

Director Chris Weitz is in the process of casting for the movie. He recently announced Taylor Lautner will return as Jacob Black, who has a much larger part in the second film. Those who are concerned about Fanning’s age should note that Lautner is only 16-years-old (17 in February).

The crew plans to start shooting in March in the United States and Italy for a scheduled November 20, 2009 release date.

CHICAGO – With the casting rumors debunked about “High School Musical” star Vanessa Hudgens potentially appearing in “Twilight” sequel “New Moon,” another hot casting scoop just sprouted up. The 14-year-old (hey, she’s almost 15) child star Dakota Fanning is in negotiations to play Jane opposite Robert Pattinson and friends in “New Moon”.

The news began circulating minutes ago following an exclusive report from Marc Malkin of E! Online. He cited anonymous sources. His report states:

“There were no auditions,” a source reveals. “They just offered it to [Dakota Fanning] outright and now they’re in negotiations. They’ve been going back and forth.”

Jane is a member of Italy’s Volturi: the most deadly group of bloodsucking killers in author Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling series. In [a] casting notice … [that surfaced in early Jan. 2009], Jane is described as a petite blonde with a “Botticelli angel-like face … [and] crimson irises”.

While fellow Volturi guards Demetri and Felix “are three times the size of her, they are terrified of her,” the casting notice reads.

Despite visceral reactions to the concept of Vanessa Hudgens appearing in “New Moon,” many readers of the Meyer books and watchers of the first “Twilight” film feel that Fanning would fit in the second film like a glass slipper. A fan-created online petition has been started to endorse Fanning’s inclusion in “New Moon,” which is directed by Chris Weitz.

“Pushing Daisies” star Kristin Chenoweth has also been suggested by Entertainment Weekly for the role. As the studio did with Taylor Lautner, will Summit Entertainment give fans what they want yet again? So far, “New Moon” has confirmed Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Kellan Lutz and Taylor Lautner to be in the film.

Dakota Fanning could be one of the deathly bloodsucking vampires in "New Moon". Breaking out the speculation was E! Online's Marc Malkin who exclusively reported that the co-star of Sean Penn in "I Am Sam" is in negotiations to star in the "Twilight" sequel opposite Robert Pattinson and others.

Reportedly, the soon-to-be 15-year-old actress has been offered the role of Jane, the member of the vampire coven residing in Volterra, Italy, known as the Volturi. "There were no auditions," Malkin quoted a source. "They just offered it to her outright, and now they're in negotiations. They've been going back and forth."

In the casting note, Fanning's possible starring character, Jane, has been described to be a petite blonde with a "Botticelli angel-like face...[and] crimson irises." While physically small than fellow Volturi guards Demetri and Felix, who "are three times the size of her", she is able to make the two of them "terrified of her".

Penned by "Twilight" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, "New Moon" will have "The Golden Compass" director Chris Weitz serving behind the lens. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are among several other original cast members set to reprise their roles. The Summit Entertainment movie is reported to start production in March in the U.S. and Italy for November 20, 2009 release.

Oh yeah, the new movie she's in, Push, will be a little glimpse of the older Dakota. I mean, she's not this little cutie anymore. She's a lady now, and in Push, she's gonna be dark, and totally different... so I think she already had practice with the dark area that the Volturi has if she does get the part of Jane...
