During our exclusive interview I asked Dakota about the rumors that she would be playing the vampire Jane in the upcoming sequel to Twilight, New Moon. She confirmed that she is in talks for the role and then we should have an official announcement soon. She expressed her fandom for all things Twilight and that she would love to be in the film.

“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.

The Insider

Asked by “The Insider” whether the rumors were true that she’d signed on for the ‘Twilight’ sequel ‘New Moon,’ Dakota tells us: “I really hope that works out. It would be interesting, really fun to be a part of. I’m a huge fan of all those actors. So, it’s too soon to tell right now, but I really hope that it does happen.”

Dakota, 14, tells us that although contracts haven’t been signed yet, she does hope to join the cast of ‘New Moon,’ possibly as the sadistic bloodsucker Jane.

“It would be so cool to play a vampire,” she gushes.
