Dakota Fanning as....JANE?


According to several sources, talks have already started with reps for actress Dakota Fanning to play the evil torturer vampire, Jane. E! Online Mark Malkin reports that
“There were no auditions. They just offered it to her outright, and now they’re in negotiations. They’ve been going back and forth.”

Fanning, 14, turns 15 on February 23rd, and has starred in several big movies such as The Cat in the Hat, Charlotte's Web, and War of the Worlds (opposite Tom Cruise).
Malkin says that New Moon's Jane is described in the casting notice as a petite, but terrifying, blonde with a “Botticelli angel-like face…[and] crimson irises.”

I always thought there was something a little creepy about that girl, anyway!

not bad, isnt she a lil toooooo young? petite doesnt mean a very young girl. the girl is a lil creepy and a good actress. but they should choose someone like idk..a lil older to fit the scheme, since its for the older teen generation ;)

Anja said...

kinda contradicting my earlier comment, but wat about little Jodelle Ferland? shes creepy!

I think she's perfect. It doesnt say her date of change but it does say she is VERY young looking and i think Dakota could play that well.

After all she is realll creepy

I can't really picture Jane as a child, and I think Dakota still sort of looks like a child.
I pictured her as a very petite woman, with a child-LIKE face. Besides, Dakota Fanning gets all the good roles...she's like the prom queen of cinema. Give someone else a chance!

Oooh. I think she'd be perfect. And, I have no doubt that, as an actress, she can handle pervasive terror. I'm scared of Jane/Dakota already.

I think she's a great choice. I always pictured Jane as young and childlike, so Dakota Fanning is perfect!

Debnog said...

NOPE! You're all wrong.

(I'm kidding!) Obviously, I am in the minority about this.
Great Comments!

I think she'll be good. Dakota Fanning has always creeped me out a little anyway. Now there's just a valid reason for this.

I think she can do it! Does anyone remember her in the movie HIDE and SEEK?? Even as a little girl she could play a role that was dark and creepy..........especially with make up etc. she will look a little older but still have the angelic features!

Michelle said...

That's awesome! I really like her! I had thought of Jane as a bit older than Fanning, but I'm sure they will make her look just the right age!
