Dakota Fanning may be joining the dark side of Twilight.
The 14-year-old star, who turns 15 next month, has reportedly been offered the villainous role of Jane, a petite, yet deadly member of Italy s Volturi coven in the film adaptation of author Stephenie Meyer s second book, New Moon.
“There were no auditions,” a source tells E! Online. “They just offered it to her outright, and now they re in negotiations. They ve been going back and forth.”
While fans have been petitioning online for the teen actress to join the cast of New Moon, Fanning isn’t a stranger to the supernatural: she plays a clairvoyant in the sci-fi thriller Push (due Feb. 6) alongside Chris Evans and Camilla Belle.
