Renesmee Also Cast for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn ?

ON

First we get the news that Maggie Grace will play Irina in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, and now comes word from Entertainment Weekly that Renesmee is close to being cast as well.

EW says that 9-year-old Mackenzie Foy (“FlashForward,” “‘Til Death”) is in talks to play Renesmee, a key character in the final part of “Breaking Dawn.” It is unclear how Foy would play the role considering the considerable change in age during the story, though it is suggested they may be going with effects like the ones used in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

“Breaking Dawn – Part 1” is hitting theaters on November 18, 2011 and “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” opens on November 16, 2012. Both films are being directed by Bill Condon from scripts by Melissa Rosenberg.
