Dakota Fanning's involvement in "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" has reportedly been made official. According to Twilighters Anonymous, Summit Entertainment have announced via e-mail to Twilight the Movie subscribers that the 15-year-old has joined the "New Moon" cast ensemble as the Volturi member, Jane.
"Dakota Fanning joins New Moon," so read the headline of the Summit's announcement. It further continued to read, "Acclaimed actress Dakota Fanning has officially joined the cast. And will play fan favorite Jane in The Twilight Saga: New Moon." Whether this report is true or not is yet to be proven as the studio has yet to come up with a public statement of the matter.
Dakota Fanning has been linked to the Jane character for quite sometime now. Soon after rumors surfaced that the "Coraline" star is linked to "New Moon", confirmations were outed that Fanning is indeed in negotiation to star as Jane. She also has come out speaking about the character, saying "The character is what I would be excited about. It's kind of evil, something I've never done before, and it's a vampire. You know, it's really cool, so I really hope it works out."
A sequel to 2008 hit vampire drama "Twilight", "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" will be directed by "The Golden Compass" helmer Chris Weitz using the script penned by "Twilight" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. The romantic drama will see the return of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner among others.
Centering on the personal conflict Bella experiences, it will chronicle the time Bella Swan is left devastated by the abrupt departure of Edward Cullen. Finding solace in her friendship with Jacob Black, she soon finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves and her loyalty to the vampires is tested. The Summit Entertainment movie is aimed for November 20 U.S. release.
