Although there’s been no official announcement, [movieperson id="266286"]Dakota Fanning[/movieperson] is confirming her interest in the role of Jane in [movie id="369195"]“Twilight”[/movie] sequel [movie id="414921"]“New Moon.”[/movie] Jane, a vampire with dangerous mental powers, is a guard for the Italian sect known as the Volturi.
“It’s definitely possible. I really hope it works out,” Fanning told Hitfix.com. “It would be a really fantastic experience, I’m sure.”
“I think that the actors are amazing,” the 14-year-old actress, who seems to have the support of “Twilight” fans, told E! Online. “It would be really cool to be a part of that. I’m a big fan.”
In a [news id="1603301"]“New Moon” casting notice[/news] that went out earlier this month, Jane is described as a “petite blonde with a … Botticelli angel-like face … [and] crimson irises,” E! reported. The notice also said that “fellow Volturi guards Demetri and Felix … are three times the size of her, [and] they are terrified of her.”
“We are considering all actors that have the unique requirements for the look of Jane, Dakota being one of them,” a rep for Summit Entertainment told “Access Hollywood” regarding the rumors of Fanning’s casting in the sequel to the hit vampire flick.
As of September, [news id="1603440"]Fanning had yet to read any of the “Twilight” books[/news], despite showing an interest in the series. “I haven’t read them, but I have a lot of friends that read them all the time,” she told MTV News. “They’re so excited about the movie. When I went to Comic-Con, ‘Twilight’ was there. I have to read these books now, ’cause everybody’s reading them, and I’m sure they’re fantastic.”
