Surely if it was real they would have announced it like they did with the other guy.

All is not well between demon-magnet Bella and Edward Cullen, her vampire Romeo. An innocent papercut at Edward’s house puts Bella in grave danger when various members of the Cullen family can barely resist their hunger at the smell of blood. The Cullens promptly leave town, afraid of endangering Edward’s beloved, and Bella sinks into an overwhelming depression. Months later, she finally emerges from her funk to rebuild her life, focusing on her friendship with besotted teen Jacob from the reservation. Bella’s unhealthy enthrallment to Edward leads her into dangerous and self-destructive behavior despite her new friends, and supernatural complications are bound to reappear. Bella’s being hunted by an evil vampire, and Jacob’s adolescent male rage turns out to be incipient lycanthropy: It seems many Quileute Indians become werewolves in the presence of vampires, their natural enemies. (March 23 – May 20 / will shoot in the ancient Tuscan city of Volterra for two weeks in May – Release date Nov. 20, 2009)
Of note is that Dakota Fanning is now listed as in the cast–so she may have officially signed. But, at the same time, it also claims the film will be shooting in Volterra–which as we just reported, is still up in the air.
Determined to strengthen her ties to our favorite genre beyond co-starring in Robert DeNiro’s worst horror film and sharing a name with the creepiest hotel in history (well, next to the Overlook that is), Dakota Fanning may soon be starring as not-so-nice vampire Jane in the Twilight sequel New Moon. While chatting with Fanning at the recent Los Angeles press junket for Coraline (for which she voices the title character), we asked the starlet if the rumors were true. Hit the jump to see what she told us. And, for added fun, count the number of times the tween thespian says “cool”!
“Yeah, it’s not just a rumor, it’s true. And I hope that it does work out. It’s not a hundred-percent sure. I can’t say it’s for sure yet. But it would be really cool if it does work out. I’m a big fan.”
When we asked if she’d read all the books in the Twilight series, Fanning replied, “I haven’t read all of them yet. But I’m getting there. It’s such a cool series and I’m a big fan of the cast. So it would be really cool to be a part of. I hope it works out… I think it would be really cool to do something different than I’ve ever done before. I mean, a vampire – it’s really neat. She’s kind of evil and mean, the character that I would be playing. So it would be a fun opportunity.”

Dakota Fanning is allegedly “determined” to win the heart of Twilight star Robert Pattinson. Fanning has been offered a part in the Twilight sequel New Moon and sources say she is keen to get the role so she can get close to Pattinson.
“Dakota is very determined, and she gets what she wants. Right now she has her laser focus on Rob,” an insider tells Star magazine. “Even though she knows she’s too young for anything serious with Robert, she likes to flirt. She just wants to have some fun!”
Meanwhile, Fanning’s part in New Moon is not official. If she gets the part, the 14-year-old will star alongside original cast members Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Pattinson.

There really isn’t any news today…
Dakota Fanning showed some serious style in a silver strapless origami mini dress at the LA premiere of Push on Thursday, January 29.
The charming 14-year-old, fast emerging as a teen and tween style icon, looked enchanting in the dress with symmetrical pleating across the bodice and at the waist.
She accessorized with matching peep toe heels with ankle straps and a double hoop pendant gold necklace. Her long straight blond hair left open draped her shoulders with a middle parting. She wore black mascara and brick red lip gloss.
Meanwhile, she was interviewed by MTV on Friday, January 30 about her ongoing negotiations to join “New Moon”. And she revealed: “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!”
The actress added: “I wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent, but it’s definitely, obviously a possibility and something that would be really cool. I really hope it works out.” Dakota also explained why she would be a good fit for Jane in the “Twilight” sequel, saying: “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.”
But the “Push” starlet hasn’t read all of Stephenie Meyer’s novels yet. “I haven’t read all of them,” she told MTV. “But I have seen the film, and I’m a very big fan of the cast. I love all of them. I would look forward to getting to work with them.”
When asked could she keep herself under control if she shot a scene opposite Robert Pattinson, Dakota responded: “He is very, very cute. But I’m sure I would be. The part that I play gets to interact with a lot of the characters, so that would be cool.”
Has she even got the part yet ?!
She seems to be really into it

Even though actor Peter Facinelli, who plays Dr. Carlisle Cullen in ‘Twilight,’ admits he hasn’t been keeping up with all the ‘New Moon’ rumors, he is excited to hear that Dakota Fanning might be joining the cast as vampire Jane. “She is a phenomenal actress… [The role of Jane] would be great for her,” Facinelli exclusively told PopEater.
“I always think of her as this 12-year-old girl, but she is older now. What is she like 16 now?” he joked.
Fanning, who turns 15 in February, is in talks to play bloodsucker Jane opposite Robert Pattinson in ‘New Moon.’ The character of Jane is described in casting docs as a terrifying petite blond with a “Botticelli angel-like face… [and] crimson irises.”
According to reports, there were no auditions and the part was just handed to Fanning. Facinelli believes she will make a great addition to the cast and bring something new to the movie.
“I have been very fortunate to work with great people. The [‘Twilight’] cast is really great. We are like a family,” Facinelli said. “[During filming] I took on the father figure role, and they were all my kids. I love all of them,” he added.
Well… not really. But I thought I’d post anyway.
We predict she ends up just like Kiki Dunst.
As we reported last week, rumors have been swirling that Dakota Fanning is in talks to play kiddie-vamp, Jane, from the Twilight series movie sequel, New Moon.
Well, it turns out that this particular rumor has more bite to it than the previously buzzed about turn by Vanessa Hudgens, and Dakota herself is talking about the possibility to the press!
Dakota spoke to HitFix about the process, saying:
“It’s definitely possible. I really hope it works out. It would be a really fantastic experience I’m sure.”
Fanning has a new movie coming out on February 6, Push, that also thrusts her into a paranormal world of people with supernatural/paranormal abilities, so we’re thinking this wouldn’t be a stretch for her.
But really? Tiny blonde child vampires? That’s so Kiki Dunst circa 1994.

Will Dakota Fanning play a pint-sized vampire in the “Twilight” sequel, “New Moon?” She’s crossing her fingers.
“I think it’s too soon to tell if I’ll for sure be doing it, but it’s so great,” she told Access Hollywood on Saturday at the junket for her latest film, “Push.” “I’m a really big fan of that series and the first film and all the actors in it, so it would be wonderful.”
E! Online’s Marc Malkin reported on Thursday that Dakota was currently negotiating for the role of Jane, a member of the deadly Volturi vampires from Italy, where much of “New Moon” takes place.
Following Malkin’s report, a rep for Summit Entertainment confirmed to Access there had been talks with the actress.
“We are considering all actors that have the unique requirements for the look of Jane — Dakota being one of them,” a rep for Summit told Access.
If she does get the part, Dakota said she won’t have to spend too much time in the makeup chair.
“I don’t think they’ll have to put a lot of makeup on me,” she joked. “I’m pretty white already.”
And the 14-year-old actress added that doing the film would give her a boost with her “Twilighter” pals.
“Pretty much all my friends are pretty big fans, so it would be great,” she said.
“Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will all be reprising their roles in “New Moon,” which goes into production in March.
“Push,” also a Summit Entertainment film, is due February 6.
