Dakota Fanning is growing up before our eyes — that is if you consider 14-years-old grown up. The actress who starred in I Am Sam at the age of seven was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award that same year and has gone on to star opposite Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington and Robert De Niro and with her upcoming role in Push there is an obvious effort to make the child actor look a bit more grown up and she is now reportedly in negotiations to raise her profile with the tween generation on an even higher level as E! says she may be starring in the Twilight sequel New Moon.
Marc Malkin at E! says Fanning has been offered and is negotiating for the role of Jane, a member of Italy’s Volturi, the most deadly group of bloodsucking killers in author Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling series. The report continues:
In the casting notice we got our hands on earlier this month, Jane is described as a petite blonde with a “Botticelli angel-like face… [and] crimson irises.” While fellow Volturi guards Demetri & Felix “are three times the size of her, they are terrified of her,” the casting notice reads.
The report also points out there is an online fan petition started by fans to cast Fanning in the role. I am sure Summit will announce the casting soon should negotiations work out.
