According to E! online, the 14-year-old starlet — who has shared the screen with bigwigs like Tom Cruise and Robert De Niro — is in talks to star as the vampire Jane in “New Moon.” A source dished, “There were no auditions — they just offered it to her outright, and now they’re in negotiations. They’ve been going back and forth.”

    I personally, would love for her to play Jane. I’ve always pictured her to play Jane. She’s BEYOND perfect for the role. She would be amazingly cast.

  2. Brystel says:

    OMG Yay! I Hated That Other Girl…..She Had A Big Nose Lol

  3. Amanda D. says:

    I think 14 is a little young but I do think she’d be really good. I remember her in that movie with robert dinero and she creeped me out in it. LOL it will be funny to see others be affraid of her when she’s so sweet looking.

  4. Camille says:

    14 is way too young to play Jane! I know that in the book she and Alec are described as having childlike, angelic features and faces, however it did not mean that they were children. I think a pixie-like 20-somthing would serve much better in this role.

  5. lariza says:

    she seems perfect, i couldnt imagine jane but now i can!

  6. Shteff! says:

    NO!

  7. Cedar says:

  8. Lucy says:

    i think shes a bit short……….. and ugh idk theres just something there that doesnt work for me!
    not at all!

  9. sou says:

    YES!! Please! I love her she’s so cute!!

  10. Ana says:

    I really did not imagine Jane like that at all… she’s a bit young also… i just don’t think she’s THE Jane.

  11. cary says:

    WHAT ABOUT ALEC SHE HAS A TWIN YOU KNOW lol im just saying

  12. CullenCrazy17 says:

    idk…i just cant c her as a vicious vampire…as jane tends to be…maybe thts just me, idk

  13. Cherry Garcia says:

    I don”t think she works for the part of Jane.

  14. mazza says:

    no way! omg! i dunno why but i always imagined her like 30 so this is a big shock ow! a pretty 14 yr old thats so wierd!! i actually cant believe it! but idk mayb she’ll be gud!

  15. Joyce says:

    Jane is very young. There is some information about her on the Lexicon from Stephenie Meyer.

  16. Hannah says:

    no…. i like her, but not for jane.

  17. emma says:

    i think she would be perfect!!!!!! i imagined jane small, cute, petite but horribly evil…i really think Dakota has that look and can pull off being evil!

  18. Amanda G says:

    Ummm… I’m 14 and I just thinks it’s to young, I imagined jane small but older

  19. Tiffany C. says:

    ah! this would be amazing! she’s been my choice for Jane since forever!

    yeah, she’s young. but the romanians in new moon called jane and alec that “devil children” or something like that… i know it had *child* in it.

    and dakota has all that. she can do that evil grin that jane has when she’s applying her abilities, and she’s younger so she’ll have that higher voice. she’s such an amazing actress too! I think this is the best New Moon knews for me so far! xD

  20. Jacob's Girl says:

    No. She shouldn’t play Jane. Jane isn’t a little 5-year old girl. She is a small adult. At least in my opinion. And, Dakota will still grow and get taller, and errrr last time I checked, vampires don’t age – or grow!

  21. Amy Git r Done says:

    Jane and Alec *were* in their early teens when they were changed. Aro didn’t want to change them that young but when you’re burning at the stake you have to do what you have to do. Dakota’s looking her age to me lately. I saw previews for her new movie and I think she’d make a great Jane.

  22. The Twihard says:

    I think she’d be wonderful for Jane, she’s a wonderful actress and I think she could really pull it off!! YAY!!!

  23. teen14 says:

    I think with black hair she will look very Jane scary vampire ish!!! I’m really excited to see pictures.

  24. Dana says:

    someone big cool

  25. ASHLEY says:

    ok so i just have to say hell no! mainly because she’s too young and i doubt she could do any good to the role of jane. i mean look at her does she really look like she could hurt edward and or bella or anybody else for that matter?
    plus by the time she has to be in the future movies she will look ALOT different you do alot of growing up within a few years especially at that age.
    just look at how fast daniel radcliffe, emma watson, and rupert grint grew up
    so in the end i say NO!!!!

  26. Erin(: says:

    NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO NO NO NO NO! SHE ISN’T GOING TO BE JANE! I DON’T WANT HER TO BE JANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. hannah says:

    NNNNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i dont like her much. and she is not at all how i pictured jane. shes to young

  28. Diane says:

    I think she would ruin the movie if she is in it. to put a highly paid mainstream actress in new moon would be a big mistake

  29. Diane says:

    also then it would become a Dakota Fanning movie

  30. Diane says:

    new moon should NOT be a Dakota Fanning movie!!!!

  31. Diane says:

    who would want to see Dakota Fanning’s name in the opening credits??? Not me

  32. Nicole says:

    NOOOO. I like her as an actor, but I like Twilight being a small-time-actors movie. It helps make them not-so-small-time-actors lol. So, my vote…NO

    Love your podcasts,

  33. Brandi says:

    I will have to take back some previous post comments. I wouldn’t mind seeing DF as Jane. EVEN though she is a big name and I said they should choose complete unknowns. But I wont be hurt if they don’t choose her. The main cast is chosen , so I am satisfied!

  34. Brandi says:

    ***correction: I will be satisfied IF they don’t choose a Disney kid!!!!!! ::::COUGH VH COUGH::::

  35. Lola says:

    i don’t really know what to think. I pictured Jane as looking like an 18 yr old not 14.

  36. hayleyreigh says:

    GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! THATS WHO IVE BEEN SAYING SHOULD PLAY HER ALL ALONG!!!!!

    I hope they get her!

  37. Amanda says:

    FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY!!!!!
    JUST SAY NO! SHE ALREADY RUINED THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES, WE CANNOT GIVE HER NEW MOON!
    PLEASE NONONONONONONONO!!!!!!!!!!

  38. Michele Celine says:

    I, myself don’t see her as Jane. Jane needs to be a young adult, not a preteen.

  39. S says:

    I’d like Dakota Fanning as Jane, but I don’t think she’s the best choice because she’s at the age where’s she’s still growing up and unless they plan on filming the movies one after the other, I don’t think they should choose her to play the role. If they can find someone older like in their early twenties who looks like a teenager and childlike then I think that’d be perfect.

  40. Mrs. Everarianas Edward Cullen says:

    I tihnk she would be the perfect Jane. She is a very talented actress, so ‘m sure she can play bitchy and evil :)

  41. Mrs. Everarianas Edward Cullen says:

    YOU GUYS NEED TO CALM DOWN. ITS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. THIS IS JUST A RUMOR. AND ITS NOT LIKE JANE IS A BIG PART.
    So what if she becomes Jane? I know that people at HisGoldenEyes and Twilighters.org are handling this a lot better than you guys.
    TWILIGHTERS CAN BE SOOOOOO HARSH AND JUDGEMENTAL SOMETIMES, ITS RIDICULOUS.

  42. deb says:

    I don’t think she has what it takes…I’ve never seen her portray any sort of wisdom or rage that Jane would have over centuries and centuries of torturing others for the Volturi. I’m hoping it’s a no go.

  43. sara says:

    I think shes perfect

  44. AMY KAT says:

    FIRST I wouldn’t get too worked up about it, after all the rumors are flying like crazy right now. Lets say it is true though, I’m a bit on the fence about Miss Fanning. I think she has potential, but not too sure that she could pull off Jane. She definitely has that innocent, angelic, childlike face that’s needed but would she be able to portray the ferocity or rage behind the face?!? For now I say don’t get your panties in a bunch, it might all just turn out to be rumors!

    XOXO

  45. OME!! wow personally i think this wud be good because jane is supposed to look sweet and be evil…she is the perfect 1 for Jane.

  46. Leslie says:

    Cool! I really like her other movies!

  47. Sarah Madge says:

    i like her, I always imagined Jane very young

  48. Amy says:

    I already said that she’s just perfect for the role ! And i’m sure that Stephenie Meyer will see that it is the best choice …I mean …Dakota Fanning INVENTED angelic ! And she’s an excellent actress so …

    DEFINITLY YES
