Featured New Moon Casting Scoop! Dakota Fanning as Jane?


It's possible. I can report that the 14-year-old child star - she turns 15 on Feb. 23 - is in talks to play Jane opposite Robert Pattinson & Co. in New Moon, the upcoming sequel to box office megahit Twilight.


There were no auditions, a source reveals. They just offered it to her 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 the casting notice we got our hands on earlier this month, Jane is described as a petite blonde with a Botticelli angel-like face[and] crimson irises.While fellow Volturi guards Demetri & Felix - are three times the size of her, they are terrified of her, the casting notice reads.


Coincidentally (or maybe not), an online petition started by a Twilight fan already asks the studio, Summit Entertainment, to cast Dakota Fanning because she would be perfect for the role.


Early last month, Entertainment Weekly suggested Pushing Daisies star and Broadway diva Kristin Chenoweth. Her voice is certainly high enough, and at 4'11, she's also short enough,'' writer Amy Wilkinson proposed.


Director Chris Weitz is expected to start shooting New Moon in March in the U.S. and Italy. If all goes as planned, the movie will hit theaters on Nov. 20.


Is Fanning right for Jane? We're sure Twilight fans have plenty to say about it.
