LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
Will Dakota Fanning play a pint-sized vampire in the “Twilight” sequel, “New Moon?” She’s crossing her fingers.
“I think it’s too soon to tell if I’ll for sure be doing it, but it’s so great,” she told Access Hollywood on Saturday at the junket for her latest film, “Push.” “I’m a really big fan of that series and the first film and all the actors in it, so it would be wonderful.”
E! Online’s Marc Malkin reported on Thursday that Dakota was currently negotiating for the role of Jane, a member of the deadly Volturi vampires from Italy, where much of “New Moon” takes place.
Following Malkin’s report, a rep for Summit Entertainment confirmed to Access there had been talks with the actress.
“We are considering all actors that have the unique requirements for the look of Jane — Dakota being one of them,” a rep for Summit told Access.
If she does get the part, Dakota said she won’t have to spend too much time in the makeup chair.
“I don’t think they’ll have to put a lot of makeup on me,” she joked. “I’m pretty white already.”
And the 14-year-old actress added that doing the film would give her a boost with her “Twilighter” pals.
“Pretty much all my friends are pretty big fans, so it would be great,” she said.
“Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will all be reprising their roles in “New Moon,” which goes into production in March.
“Push,” also a Summit Entertainment film, is due February 6.
