Dakota Fanning may not be saying much about joining the cast of the Twilight sequel, but yesterday she did confirm she’s in talks to play Jane!

As I exclusively reported last week, the 14-year-old child star has been offered the role of the young killer bloodsucker in the movie adaptation of New Moon, the second book in Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling teenage vampire series.

"It's definitely possible. I really hope it works out," Fanning told Hitfix.com while promoting her latest flick Push. "It would be a really fantastic experience I'm sure."

Director Chris Weitz is so confident that Fanning is right for the part, he offered it to without even an audition. Filming of the much-anticipated flick begins in March in the U.S. and Italy.

A member of the deadly Volturi, Jane is described in a casting notice as a petite blonde with a “Botticelli angel-like face…[and] crimson irises.”

An online petition to cast Fanning as Jane has seen a huge bump in signatures ever since my story broke on Wednesday.

A rep for the studio, Summit Entertainment, reportedly confirmed Fanning is one of the actors being considered for the role.

If it happens, Fanning will join returning stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, among others. New Moon is set to open in November.
