Dakota Fanning to play Jane?

check out the gossip here

what do you think? would dakota make a good Jane?

26 enjoyed the bouquet.:

alison said...

She's awfully pretty. And young looking. And small. And a good actress.

I think she could do it.

Kari said...

I always pictured Jane with black hair. Not that they couldn't give Fanning black hair for the movie.

I don't know if I believe this bit of gossip. Can the Twilight budget afford Dakota Fanning? I mean, she's got to be paid big bucks, right?

alison said...

Yeah, I don't know if I believe it either.

Maybe she wants to do more normal teen kinds of movies? Maybe she loves Robbie!

Kari said...

E News is also reporting this! E News is pretty reputable. Wow, that's crazy!

alison said...

interesting. Thanks Kari.

Kira said...

That's cool... When I first heard it I was a little thrown, but I think she'd do good. She's a great actress and definitely has the face for it. And I would assume that New Moon is gonna have a much bigger budget than Twilight did, with the amount of Revenue Summit got from Twilight they would be stupid not to.

This makes me think they are going to play up the end of the book, the Volturi in Italy, a lot more in the movie.

If they are getting someone like Dakota Fanning to play a part, you know she won't be signed on for just 5 minutes of the movie!

Kari said...

Ohh good point, Ginger.

I'm really excited to see Aro and crew.

♦Z~Z♦ said...

oh... there goes my only chance to be in the movie... :-(

Unless I'm an extra... IF I can even get close to the shooting of the movie...

mo said...

i'm right there with you, z~z

if i even tried to get close enough to see the trees in the backround, with my luck they'd probably arrest me for being a screaming fangirl :(

anyway, i'm not sure if fanning could pull it off. i mean, i know vamps are supposed to look youthful and such, but i think fanning brings a little too much YOUTH to the character. what is she, 15? 16? if they wanted youth, they could always cast me :P

yes, i am also excited to see aro and company. let us hope they don't screw up the casting :)

I think Dakota Fanning would be a great choice! I remember her being really young in all of her movies, but she really is a teenager now! (which makes me feel old) She is a talented actress though, and I think it would be cool to see her play someone not so innocent and young.

oh and good point, Ginger! I'm sure they will play up Italy because Edward is in that part!

heatheryruth said...

ooo! She's a good actress! I think she could pull it off! (heck she's better than some of the principle actors in my opinion!) I'm really looking forward to the Italy scene! so this makes me excited!!

I think she would be a good jane.
But she would have to have like mood swings if you know what I mean.
Like she has to seem really nice and cute or what ever and than totally change into this crazed bitch....
She will look the part with a black wig on.

Erin said...

I think she could do it. The fact that she's a teenager makes me feel old, too, Maggie...

In my mind, though, Jane looks like a mini-Christina Ricci.

Corinne said...

She kinda bugs, but maybe that is mostly in her younger roles.

I guess I might judge her from her upcoming movie "Push". It has a sci-fi edge and I think her character is a little more dark too.

Who knows. After Twilight, I'm not sure anything could be worse...

Ginger said...

Haha Corinne!! Yeah I still think they screwed up Twilight the movie pretty bad.

I remember Dakota Fanning in I Am Sam, not sure how old she was?? young I know that! but I thought she was so good in it.

Kayla said...

I think she would be great! I would love to see her play Jane!

hmm... I was browsing around IMBd and was on NM when I spotted a link. It said that this movie is going to be followed by Breaking Dawn, which is coming out in 2013. The sypnopsis is based on the book because the screen-play hasn't been realesed yet, so it's no help at all.

Not to mention that only Robb, Kristen, Ashley, Nikki, Jackson and Kellan are shown to be playing their characters.

Anyone know when they would need to film in LA? One of the filming locations is Los Angeles, California, USA, but I'm not quite sure when they're in a big city.

The genres are:
Fantasy
Horror
Romance
Thriller (can't think about that word without the MJ song coming into my head...)

Tell me what you think.

heatheryruth said...

Z,

Both Eclipse and Breaking Dawn are listed as following New Moon and Twilight, however neither of them have any information. As always it depends on how well the movies do. The actors have stated that they are "tentatively" signed on to do at least 3, but if NM flops they may not make the next one!

IMDB has a tendency to post movies that aren't even in pre-production! Which basically means IMDB doesn't even know anything about it!

♦Z~Z♦ said...

ok good. i was seriously getting worried. thanks!

Grimm said...

I think Dakota(?) would be ok, but i pictured her with dark hair?

ash said...

same here i think dark hair would be better

♦Z~Z♦ said...

Dark hair would be better to agree with Grimm and Ash, but they could also dye her hair. I dyed my hair florecent red once, still hasn't completely come out. Or that might just be my naturel hair color...

Ginger said...

I just saw this on yahoo:

First time hearing about this one! I knew her from Nip/Tuck and now 90210. I'm wondering what her "small role" might be in New Moon. Hmmm.

alison said...

I am not at all a fan of her.
Maybe she will be the receptionist at vampire HQ?

Ginger said...

HAHAHA.. I didn't even think of that! That would be AWESOME.
