Dakota Fanning Confirmed to Star in New Moon

What started as a rumor is now true. Dakota Fanning is in fact joining the Twilight sequel, New Moon. She’ll be playing the sinister role of the vampire Jane, who uses her angelic looks to her advantage.

Shooting for New Moon begins in Vancouver this month. In fact, several of the actors, including Nikki Reed, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner were all spotted in the city over the weekend preparing for filming. Nikki, who plays Rosalie in the film, told People magazine, “We did just get a script. We’re shooting the rest of the films back to back.”

So fans won’t have to wait too long in between New Moon and Eclipse to come out! Kristen Stewart recently told MTV, “I look forward to all of it. We're just starting prep on "New Moon," and it's almost like a more elaborate version of the first one. It's getting bigger and bigger, which is great. I mean, it's what we all hoped for.”

Adding Dakota Fanning to the cast is a smart move. She may be young, but she’s brilliant in her roles. Despite her innocent looks, we could definitely see her playing a villain! And Dakota seems really excited about her role.

She tells MTV, "I know that a lot of people know about it. I'm glad that people are excited about me possibly being in it. That's so nice! We're both pale. ... I don't think they'd have to put a lot of makeup on me if it works out. I'm pretty pale as it is."

Now that she has gotten the role of Jane, she'll finally have the chance to work with Rob Pattinson, who she described as "very, very cute."
