Dakota Fanning Joins 'New Moon' Cast
She Will Play Jane the Vampire
DAKOTA Fanning (pictured) will join Twilight's Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and company in the hit movie's highly anticipated sequel, New Moon.
Entertainment Tonight confirmed that Fanning, 15, will be sinking her teeth into the role of the young vampire, Jane, in the film which is scheduled to open shortly after Halloween on Nov. 20, 2009.
The sequel, based on the second book in author Stephenie Meyer's popular vampire series, will be directed by Chris Weitz. Fanning recently starred in The Secret Life of Bees and Push, and gave her voice to Coraline. She's currently negotiating to play lead singer Cheri Currie in "The Runaways," the biopic of the '70s all-girl band that has already booked Twilight star Kristen Stewart to play Joan Jett.
