Dakota Fanning, Teenage Vampire!

Dakota Fanning, no longer the midget moppet we likely know her best as, might be sucking on necks come November.

The "Charlotte's Web" star is in talks to play 'Jane'* in "Twilight" sequel "New Moon", according to E! Online.

Jane, for those who don't wear skirts, is a member of Italy’s Volturi, the most deadly group of bloodsucking killers in author Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling series.

Fanning, seen in more 'big people' flicks of late (like "The Secret Life of Bees"), has been offered the part - no audition, read, or lunch meeting necessary; it's hers if he she wants it.

For once, though, it looks like fans could be happy with the role going to Fanning, and there was even an online petition created by fans demanding Summit give Fanning the role -- then again, there's an online petition for anything these days. One thing is for sure: if Fanning does sign on, I think fans can feel a lot more confident in her acting chops than in some of the other names that have been tossed around.

So now I leave the floor to the fans: sound off below and tell us what you think about Ms. Fanning taking over as one of the baddest Volturi on the block...
