BellaandEdward.com is reporting that Dakota Fanning has accepted the role of Jane in the upcoming “Twilight” film, “New Moon”, or, if we must use the full title, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon”. We can also use my title for it, “Stalker Abstinence Romance Part II”. Since I don’t personally know any fans of the “Twilight” books and if I do we won’t be friends for long, I don’t know how folks feel about Fanning playing this role. Yes, I could do some research on what fans think of Fanning think of joining the series but let’s face it: my Friday night is sad enough without trolling “Twilight” fan sites.
However, I will use the Hitchhiker’s Guid—I mean, Wikipedia, to get a little synopsis of Jane’s role: She’s a member of the Volturi (a vampire high council of some sort) and is described and has the power to create illusions of pain. So she’s a villain? That would be cool. Fanning has moved beyond being a child actress so she wouldn’t be the creepy child monster that’s such weak sauce (Horror Rule #11: You cannot scare me with something I can drop-kick). Furthermore, after her performance in “Push”, I’m starting to appreciate her more as an actress so perhaps she’ll make this flick slightly more bearable.
