Dakota Fanning Officially Joins Twilight's New Moon Cast
Not that this will really have any major impact on the eventual box office totals for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, but it looks like 15-year-old actress Dakota Fanning will indeed appear in New Moon after all. It was first rumored in January that she was interested in joining, but confirmed only recently by People magazine. Fanning will play the character Jane, a sinister vampire with an angelic exterior who works for the Volturi. Fanning as a bad girl? Okay, maybe I am more interested in this than I should be? But then again, I don't know anything about the Twilight series at all. Is her character really that bad anyway?
Production on The Twilight Saga: New Moon will begin in Vancouver this month for a November 20th release later this year. Nikki Reed, who plays Rosalie Hale in the film, also told People that "we're shooting the rest of the films back to back." Of course, Summit Entertainment is not only trying to save costs (by shooting that way), but trying to capitalize on the hype, so why not put them out in rapid succession before everyone gets older and salaries get more inflated? I'm actually quite curious whether Fanning's involvement will help the box office (I really doubt it) or just bring more attention to the whole thing?
