Shortly after Maggie Grace is confirmed to have been cast in "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn", another casting report from the movie emerges. Entertainment Weekly has just reported that Mackenzie Foy is "inches away" from signing up to star as Renesmee, the child of vampire Edward Cullen and mortal beauty Bella Swan.

It has not been known how the 9-year-old thesp will portray the character as the vampire/human Renesmee will be seen undergoing considerable change in age during the story. Sources suggest that director Bill Condon will employ similar digital effects to those used by David Fincher in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button".

Earlier today, Summit Entertainment has confirmed that Maggie Grace is cast as villainous vampire Irina. Previously, it was revealed that Rami Malek will portray Benjamin in "Breaking Dawn". Beside the new cast members, original stars like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will be seen in the next "Twilight" installment.

"Breaking Dawn" will be split into two parts: "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I" slated to come out in the U.S. on November 18, 2011 and "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II" due November 16, 2012. Shooting is scheduled to begin in November with Bill Condon tackling the helming duty for both movies.

Mackenzie Foy has landed roles on TV series " 'Til Death" and "FlashForward" as Little Girl and Kate Erskine respectively. Appearing on a number of commercials, Foy has not graced big screen before.

First they had teen mom and now they have twilight. Unless they jump many years forward I am guessing what Edward and Bella are about 18 in BD. Lets see obsession, stalking, suicide what could be worse lets throw to young immature parents into this. I hope they are at least 25 in the movie to be having a child but I am sure they are not and of course are wonderful self sufficient parents like all 18 and 19 years. Thanks Meyers for portraying realistic and good role models for today's youth.

Mackenzie Foy is PERFECT for the part of Renesmee! She is a perfect blend of Edward and Bella. Not too old! What are you all talking about? She's 9!!!

ok, i think she has the looks, but she IS to old, i guess a 7 yr old would be better, but she has more experience with acting, i just wish i was renesmee! lol
