Dakota Fanning lands 'New Moon' role

After months of speculation, ET has confirmed that Dakota Fanning will join Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and company in "Twilight"'s highly anticipated sequel, "New Moon."

Fanning, 15, will sink her teeth into the role of the young vampire, Jane in the film, which is scheduled to arrive in theaters on Nov. 20, 2009.

Chris Weitz will direct the new movie, based on the second book in author Stephenie Meyer's mega-popular vampire series.

Fanning most recently starred in "The Secret Life of Bees" and "Push," and voiced "Coraline." And she's currently negotiating to play lead singer Cheri Currie in "The Runaways," the biopic of the '70s all-girl band that has already booked "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart to play Joan Jett.
