Dakotafann_kravi_56650717_600As previously dished by The Dish Rag, Dakota Fanning has finally gotten a role she can really sink her teeth into.

A Summit Entertainment rep confirms to People that the 15-year-old actress is officially set to star in "Twilight" sequel "New Moon."

She’ll play Jane -– a particularly sinister vampire with a sweet, youthful exterior — who is part of the Volturi branch of the bloodsucking breed.

Filming is set to begin in Vancouver this month. But Dakota’s scenes may take place in Rome.

The movie hits theaters in November. (Hooray, something to live for!)

Presumably, Dakota is speed-reading the book  now.

Are you happy, annoyed or just totally, like, sick of people talking about Dakota starring in "New Moon"?

Who cares! Do you?
