So, you know how watching Dakota Fanning in movies like War of the Worlds is really creepy because she seems like an adult trapped in a kid’s body? Seems she’s found the right role.
That’s right, the child prodigy actress will play a vampire in the upcoming sequel to Twilight called New Moon. She will be playing Jane, a sinister vampire that appears to be all sweet and cute and cuddly. But guess what. SHE’S NOT! I have no knowledge of the Twilight franchise so forgive the accuracy (or lack thereof) of the previous statement. This information comes from People.
I for one…am just as uninterested in this film as I was three hours ago. In fact, I think Dakota might, just might, be too good for this rubbish. Then again, so is Chris Weitz. About a Boy was awesome. Still, we aren’t supposed to judge movies before we see them, so I’ll be waiting with baited anticipation (it’s a lie) to see this on opening day.
We really need to find a Twilight fan to do these news updates so I can stop being so negative. Unfortunately I can’t find one who is willing to come out of the shadows (It’s okay, Shep. You can tell the world the truth about your glowing-and-glistening-in-the-sunlight vampire obsession!)
Dakota says ”I am a very big fan of the books. I read them all and Jane is an interesting part.” I don’t know that I believe her sincerity. Fanning gotta eat.
New Moon is produced by Summit Entertainment and will begin shooting this month in Vancouver for a November release.
