Movies Online Interview With Dakota Fanning

MoviesOnline caught up again yesterday with Dakota Fanning at the Los Angeles press day for her new movie, “Coraline,” and asked her if she had any more news on her upcoming role in the Twilight sequel, “New Moon.” Dakota is a fabulous person and we really appreciated her time. Here’s what she had to tell us:

MoviesOnline: Speaking of roles, can you talk a little bit about Twilight and the reports that you’ve signed on for New Moon? Have you sealed the deal yet?

Dakota: It’s not 100% yet set in stone but it’s definitely not like totally untrue or a rumor or anything. It’s definitely a possibility and I think it would be really, really fun to be a part of. I’m a big fan of the cast and to join them would be a really great honor and I really hope that it works out and I hope I can give you a definite answer soon.

MoviesOnline: What is it about it that you’re looking forward to most?

Dakota: I think just playing an evil vampire. That’s really cool. So, if I got to do it, that would be probably the most fun part.

MoviesOnline: When you consider roles like Cassie in “Push,” or Coraline, and now Jane in “New Moon,” is there a common theme or something that attracts you to all of them? Is it the complexity of the character or the opportunity to grow as an actor?

Dakota: I think that they’re just different from each other and they’re different kinds of films and, you know, I like to kind of always keep myself on the edge of my seat of what I’m going to do next and do something that I’ve never done before and something that maybe I’ve always wanted to do. I think it’s hard to say how you plan out what you want to do. I think you just know it when it comes to you.

MoviesOnline: Has there been a role you’ve read in the scripts you’re being sent now that you wanted to do but maybe your mom thought was a little too old for you?

Dakota: No, there hasn’t been so far.

MoviesOnline: Are you picking roles that are appropriate for your age or are you trying to pick ones that are older?

Dakota: No. I mean, I think that everything that I’ve kind of been drawn to has been appropriate and I’ve never had an argument with my mom about it or anything. We’re always on the same page.

MoviesOnline: And that would apply to the Twilight sequel, “New Moon”?

Dakota: Yes, it would. Yeah.

MoviesOnline: You seem to be transitioning so easily from being a child actor to being a young adult actress. Why do you think that has happened so easily for you?

Dakota: I think if you really want it badly enough and you really want it for yourself, it’s you wanting it, I think that you’ll be able to do it. And for me, I don’t think you can take it too seriously either and too technically, like “Oh my God, I’m going to transition from this month to this month and I’m going to do this movie.” I think what you’re drawn to, like the things that I’m drawn to, reflect the age I am and the maturity that I have, and I think that you just have to be very natural about it. I really want this so badly and I want to do this forever and I think that’s why I’m able to keep going because I just never want to stop. I don’t ever see myself not doing this.

MTV: Dakota Fanning Talks New Moon, Robert Pattinson

With two films opening next weekend, Dakota Fanning’s life is pretty crazy these days. And as soon as she signs on the “Twilight” dotted line, she knows it’s going to get even more insane.

“I know that a lot of people know about it,” the soon-to-be-15-year-old star of “Push” and “Coraline” told MTV News on Friday (January 30), referring to her ongoing negotiations to join “New Moon” as Jane. “I’m glad that people are excited about me possibly being in it. That’s so nice!”

What’s nice for Twilighters is the thought of the critically praised child star bringing her considerable talents to their beloved franchise — a deal that she told us was looking quite good at the moment. “I wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent, but it’s definitely, obviously a possibility and something that would be really cool,” exclaimed the star of such blockbusters as “War of the Worlds” and “Man of Fire.” “I really hope it works out.”

The high-profile sequel would mark a huge departure from Fanning’s typical roles, casting her as a sadistic Volturi guard who has the power to inflict immense pain on those who cross her. “It’s definitely something that I look forward to,” she said. “I think you have to do all kinds [of roles], and eventually I am going to be the person you hate in a movie. And that’s the fun thing about acting: You can be sweet and be mean at the same time in different films.”

Explaining why she’d be a good fit for Jane, Dakota added: “We’re both pale. … I don’t think they’d have to put a lot of makeup on me if it works out. I’m pretty pale as it is.”

Fanning also revealed that while she hasn’t read all of Stephenie Meyer’s novels yet, it is her love for Catherine Hardwicke’s film that makes her want to join “New Moon” and take her own character into the franchise’s future movies. “I haven’t read all of them,” she explained. “But I have seen the film, and I’m a very big fan of the cast. I love all of them. I would look forward to getting to work with them.”

And, naturally, since Dakota is a teenage female, we couldn’t resist asking the obvious question: If the actress shot a scene opposite heartthrob Robert Pattinson, could she keep herself under control?

“He is very, very cute,” she giggled. “But I’m sure I would be.

“The part that I play gets to interact with a lot of the characters, so that would be cool,” Fanning added. “[The Volturi] are kind of mean. I think it would be definitely a different part than I’ve ever played — and I’d get to be a little evil for once.”

EW.com: Twilight Stars Talk New Moon

Summit Entertainment’s newest film, Push — starring Dakota Fanning (pictured) — may have been the main event at its premiere last night in Los Angeles. But the studio still trotted out several Twilight actors to walk the red carpet, and the upcoming sequel New Moon was definitely on everyone’s mind — including whether Fanning would slip on evil Jane’s fangs. “Dakota Fanning would be great as Jane,” said Ashley Green (goodie vamp Alice Cullen). “I really hope that rumor becomes reality.” Fanning, however, said she wasn’t quite ready to bite. “I think it is too soon to say for sure whether I will or won’t be in [New Moon],” she told EW.com. “But it would be really cool to do it. I am a very big fan of the books. I read them all and Jane is an interesting part. We haven’t really sat down and talked about it. So we will see. It was a good experience working with Summit. I guess I now have an in at the company.”

Meanwhile, Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) told EW.com that much like future werewolf Taylor Lautner, he’s been hitting the gym in preparation for the April shoot. “Bring on the wolves,” grinned Lutz. “Emmett can take ’em.” Lutz also says he’s read the New Moon script, and it’s “amazing.” Fellow Cullen clan member Greene also said she’d just gotten her hands on the script. “I felt like a spy reading it,” she said. “It does come very close to the tone and the events that are in book 2. There are a couple of things that were changed which I think make it more interesting for the visual medium but nothing that will upset fans of the books. I think it is safe to say that it will make everyone happy.”

Perhaps there’s a little Cullen clan favoritism going on at Summit, however, since actors Rachelle Lefevre and Edi Gathegi — i.e. members of the Bella-and-Edward-hating vamp clan — both said they hadn’t seen the New Moon screenplay yet. “They are guarding the script like it is gold,” said Lefevre, who added she’s already planning how to get into the mindset of the vengeful Victoria: “I have to figure out how to channel that much hatred and grief healthily because that is a pretty dark place to go.” There may be another reason, meanwhile, that Gathegi’s in the dark on New Moon: He recently told producers he’d signed on for a spring Broadway production of the August Wilson play Joe Turner’s Come and Gone. “When I told [Summit] I was going to the stage,” said Gathegi, “they said, ‘No you’re not. We need you.’ And I said, ‘Cool. Let’s try to do both.’ We start the play in February and go until June. They are in, like, day 3 of negotiations to figure out if I can do both.” But don’t worry; Gathegi says he’s committed to playing Laurent. “Worst case scenario,” he says, “I get to hang out with my vamp friends and be in what is destined to be a huge movie released [on] Nov. 20.”

MSNBC: Twilight Stars Spill New Moon Details

Good news for Twi-hards; judging by the tips “Twilight” stars Ashley Greene and Kellen Lutz shared with Access Hollywood about “New Moon” on Thursday night, it sounds like the second installment in the series will remain faithful to Stephenie Meyer’s book.

“I can tell you there’s a yellow Porsche,” Greene revealed at the premiere of Dakota Fanning’s “Push,” confirming that the vehicle, which plays a special role in the “New Moon” book, will be in the movie.

“I can tell you there’s werewolves,” she added coyly. “I think (the details of ‘New Moon’ script are) kind of highly under wraps.”

Greene, who plays Alice Cullen, the sister of Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson’s character, is expected to return alongside Lutz, who plays older brother Emmett Cullen.

“We are both confirmed to be a part of it,” he said before retracting only slightly. “I’m still waiting — crossing fingers.”

Both actors said they are thrilled over the return of Taylor Lautner, who plays Jacob Black, a young man/werewolf (and the best friend of Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan), to the franchise.

“I’m so proud of him,” Lutz said of the recent bulk-up Lautner underwent to secure his role in “New Moon.”

But one of their co-stars, Edi Gathegi, who plays Laurent, an old-school style vampire in the series, said he actually said he saw Lautner’s transformation as it happened.

“I actually worked out with him,” Gathegi revealed to Access last night. “We were working out in Australia together and working out across the country, so I saw it happening. I was there on the front lines. He was a little shrimp and he’s somewhat of a man now.”

Gathegi who will appear in “New Moon,” told Access the film would begin shooting in early spring.

“We start shooting in March in Vancouver and in Italy,” he said.

People: Dakota Fanning Says Twilight Sequel is “Definitely a possibility”

It’s (almost!) official: Dakota Fanning may soon be joining the Twilight cast as a villainous vampire.

“It’s not 100 percent yet set in stone but it’s definitely not totally untrue or a rumor,” the actress, 14, said about her role in the film’s sequel New Moon while promoting her upcoming animated film Coraline Friday in Los Angeles. “It’s definitely a possibility and I think it would be really, really fun to be a part of.”

Fanning, according to a previous report, will join the film’s returning stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner onscreen to play Jane, a petite yet powerful vampire able to inflict pain.

“I think just playing an evil vampire is really cool,” she says. “If I got to do [New Moon], that’d probably be the most fun part.”

As for her future costars, “I’m a big fan of the cast. To join it would be a really great honor and I really hope that it works out,” she says.

Home Media Magazine: Camping Out for Twilight

Actor Edi Gathegi, one of the vampires in Summit Entertainment’s hit Twilight, knows what he’ll be doing Friday night, March 20.

“I’m gonna be there at midnight with everyone else waiting for the DVD,” Gathegi said at Summit’s Push premiere party Jan. 29. “We’re gonna make it an old-fashioned slumber party … I think it’s genius what Summit is doing. A large part of our audience is teenagers, and every one of them will be there.”

In a nod to those repeat, young, female viewers who helped Twilight bring in $185 million at the domestic box office ($324 million worldwide), Summit will be making an event out of its DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases of the film, with midnight release parties nationwide.

“There wasn’t a lot in the way of history to compare with on how Twilight would perform at the box office,” said Steve Nickerson, president of Summit Home Entertainment, pointing to Mean Girls and Sex and the City as the only comparable gauges. “With the DVD, we knew if we stuck with a Tuesday we knew there were going to be fans who couldn’t get it right when it was available. We said we had to do a Saturday (March 21) release date.”

Nickerson added that a bare bones, single-DVD version is meant for rental, with the two-disc special edition ($32.99) packed with bonus features to appeal to the repeat viewers.

Sharp-eyed fans of the movie will notice that some of the special effects have been beefed up and retouched just for the DVD and Blu-ray releases.

Extras include extended and deleted scenes, music videos, a commentary, a Comic-Con featurette, and a seven-part making-of documentary. Bonuses— such as a cell phone skin — will vary depending on the retailer.

The Blu-ray Disc version comes to retail at $34.99, and will be available only at Best Buy and Target on the release date, Nickerson noted. All retailers will have access to the Blu-ray on May 5, he said.

“We had to focus on content they hadn’t seen,” Nickerson said of the bonus features, adding that gift set verions would appear as well. “All of the different value-added material is very fan specific. Fans of [novelist] Stephenie Meyer will find new things, and those who’ve never read the books will want to.”

Nickerson said Summit is letting retailers decide how they want to bow the release, but the studio is working with individual retailers on ideas for midnight parties. The current Twilight Web site will feature a store locator for fans looking to pick up their copy at 12:01 a.m.

“Every department store, Target, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, is having a different (promotion) and different versions of the DVD (slipcovers),” said Twilight actor Kellan Lutz. “I can’t wait to see how it works out. It’s brilliant what Summit has decided to do with it.”

TheImproper.com: Robert Pattinson: I’m realy not that interesting.

Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson is the object of obsession for millions of young fans around the globe, but the modest actor doesn’t understand all the hype.

“Honestly, I’m not that interesting,” says Rob, 22. In his spare time, he prefers low-key activities to going out. “I watch movies, I read, I play all kinds of music.”

Pattinson, who plays the guitar and piano and composes music, has been relaxing in his hometown of London since Dec. 22, where he has been spotted playing small gigs on the local music scene.

In March, Rob’s free time will disappear, when he starts shooting New Moon, the sequel to Twilight. New Moon will be filmed in Vancouver and Italy, and will be produced on an aggressive schedule, shooting back-to-back with Eclipse, the third installment in the Twi book series.

Since Twilight morphed into a box-office juggernaut, Rob has become one of the most sought-after young actors in Hollywood—a role the private British hunk is not altogether comfortable with.

“I’ve been getting recognized since the day I finished shooting [Twilight],” he says. “It’s crazy. In L.A., someone spots me almost every single day.” The paparazzi’s sudden obsession with Rob is part of the reason he prefers hanging out in London when he’s not working. There, Rob is much less of a paparazzi target than in the U.S., where his fan base has grown enormously over the past few months.

“I’ve been uncomfortable in crowds my whole life,” he says. “I’ve always felt that everyone is looking at me,” he laughs. “I could be in a supermarket and have a full-on panic attack when there’s no one else there. And this was even like five years ago, when nobody knew who I was!”

Hollywood superstardom is something the single Rob will have to get used to for at least the next few years, when the Twilight machine continues to rage on. Meanwhile, the 6’1″ heartthrob has other projects he’ll be promoting. On March 27, his indie flick Little Ashes (which he did before Twilight) will debut in theaters. In the artsy film, Pattinson portrays the eccentric Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali–just the kind of meaty role he relishes.

Rob, who is very serious about being a good actor, may one day branch out with his own production company. Pattinson, who has already written several scripts, is leery of the money-obsessed Hollywood film industry.

“I don’t like the way the film industry is,” he says. “If you come with a good script and then it goes to the studios and gets financing, it all gets changed because they want to make money. And it’s like, how do you know if it’s going to make money or not? All you’re doing is making it generic when you do that, and making it generic is no guarantee that it’s going to make money, either.”

Given Rob’s talent and increasing star power, it’s foreseeable he may one day be able to make the kinds of films he envisions. “The only way to [do] that is to take risks,” he says. “And you need to be able to trust people. So you get a company together with people you know are good and you know work hard and you can make good stuff. That’s kind of what I want to do.”

LXTV–Interview With Two Vampires (The Cullens from Twilight)

Nothing says cult favorite like the Twilight series. Roth Cornet sits down the film’s Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz, who play the vampire duo, Alice and Emmett Cullen. On the set of their new movie, Warrior, The stars dish about the series’ forthcoming sequel New Moon, and what it was like working with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.

Hollyscoop: Justin Timberlake, Rob Pattinson, Zac Efron to Star In New Movie

I don’t know about you guys, but this might be one of the most exciting things I’ve ever heard.

Girls of every age will automatically love this movie. We don’t even need to tell you the storyline yet. Because the hook is that Justin Timberlake, Rob Pattinson, and Zac Efron are all in the movie. That’s one smart casting director.

Rumor has it the three heartthrobs will be cast members in the upcoming movie Ohio, which is based on the 1970 murders of anti-Vietnam War protesters at Kent State University.

A little dark, no? The only one of those three we could definitely see in the movie is Rob Pattinson, thanks to Twilight. And maybe that’s what the casting director thought too. Because word on the street is that Rob’s been asked to play the lead role. Justin and Zac, who are definitely the bigger stars in the grand scheme of things, would play second fiddle to Rob.

An insider reports to Star magazine, “Everyone in the industry is shocked that Rob is already getting such big roles. Zac and Justin have been working for a lot longer than he has. There is a bit of jealousy there. Zac’s people want him to have the lead. And Justin’s people have asked that he get a lot of screen time.”

So it’s not just the actresses who get into catfights! Rob may have been around the block as many times as Zac, and certainly JT, but he definitely is the best actor of the three. Sometimes it’s not about the name either! There’s something about having a lesser-known actor playing a lead role sometimes that makes the movie more exciting and less predictable. We’ll just have to wait and see if Rob takes the lead, and if JT and Zac can put their pride aside to take the smaller roles for the sake of making a good movie!

Deadline Hollywood Daily: Kristen’s New Project?

s for Woods, who’s quite a handful, he’s producing and directing the feature An American Girl with Gersh client and Twilight star Kristen Stewart attached to star. “She said it was the best thing she’s ever read,” an insider told me. I hear that CAA’s Chris Andrews labored to get it made for Woods, but its Iraq element makes it difficult. In December, after Gersh’s Ken Kaplan set up a meeting between Woods and Stewart, Jimmy suddenly asked to be Kaplan’s client.

Robert Pattinson blasts money obsessed Hollywood.

Robert Pattinson doesn’t like the film industry.

The 22-year-old actor – who plays hunky vampire Edward Cullen in the recent Twilight film and its upcoming sequel New Moon (tentative release date of November 20, 2009; and possibly starring Dakota Fanning!) – says he doesn’t like the way Hollywood is obsessed with money.

“I don’t like the way the film industry is,” says Pattinson. “If you come with a good script and then it goes to the studios and gets financing, it all gets changed because they want to make money.

PopEater Interview With Peter Facinelli

Peter’s expecting a new family member!

If ‘Twilight’ actor Peter Facinelli had to choose between attending an exclusive premiere or staying at home with his wife Jennie Garth and their three daughters, he’d pick the latter.
“I am not a big, ‘Look at me’ person, so I don’t go to a lot of premieres. I am more of a family guy who stays at home with my kids. I’m more known as being the soccer dad,” Facinelli exclusively told PopEater.
Family life is important for both Facinelli and Garth, who met in 1995 while filming the TV movie ‘An Unfinished Affair’ and married in 2001. The couple has three daughters together: Luca Bella (11), Lola Ray (6) and Fiona Eve (2).
Facinelli, who grew up with three sisters, is not fazed by living with a household of women again. “I have three little girls and one big girl,” he joked. “I have been surrounded by women my whole life. Yeah, there is a lot of estrogen in the house, but I enjoy it,” he said.
And there might be more children on the way. “Jennie tends to get her way, but it is a debate that’s going on right now,” he said. “Honestly, my wife wants a boy, [but] to me, it doesn’t matter. At first, I wanted a boy, but now I have three beautiful daughters, who are important to me,” Facinelli said.
“It’s two fold. When you’re a father, it’s extremely painful because every time they go out of the house, you worry about them. I can’t imagine having to worry about one more person because I am already worried enough… but that being said, never say never,” he added.

Rob Pattinson’s Acting Embarrassment

Robert Pattinson is “embarrassed” to admit he’s an actor.

The British star – who plays hunky vampire Edward Cullen in the recent Twilight film and its upcoming sequel New Moon (it has a tentative release date of November 20, 2009) – admits he lies about his profession in case people think he’s cheesy.

Pattinson explains, “Acting is something I’m very serious about, and that’s why I chose it

“[But] I’m still embarrassed to say I’m an actor because it’s kinda cheesy, so I prefer to say I do something else.

“I don’t like the word ‘acting’. I prefer the word ‘creating,’ because I want to build a character with an idea that turns into something that people will remember.

“In every job that I’ve done, I’ve put something of my life into it, I try to add my life into the movie. Every period of my life in which I’ve played a different character, I’ve been a different person.”

Taylor Lautner Beefs Up For New Moon

Taylor Lautner knows that he has big shoes to fill when he reprises his role as Jacob Black in the Twilight sequel New Moon.

The 16 year old actor steps in as a leading man in the upcoming movie that begins production in March 2009.

Taylor has been spending a lot of time and doing a lot of hard work to make sure that he fits the role.

Lautner admitted, “I’ve been working hard for eight or nine months.”

Not that long ago, Lautner was just a run of the mill teen, but since he started training at the gym, he’s credited his hard work to gaining “26 pounds of muscle.”

It comes as no surprise that Taylor Lautner didn’t want to give up the role of Jacob in New Moon. Of his character, Taylor told M magazine, “He gets more in-depth in the rest of the Twilight series – when he turns into a werewolf, he has two separate personalities. When he’s himself, he’s this nice, outgoing guy who Bella loves, but then he gets very intense.”

Taylor is no stranger to hard work and physical fitness. He admitted that martial arts have been his secret passion since he was a young boy.

Lautner said, “I started when I was six and took it very seriously, training for hours each week. But when I turned 13, I realized that acting was what I really wanted to do. I miss it, and when I have time, I train at my house to keep up the skill.”

Camps are already split on whether or not Taylor Lautner will one-up Robert Pattinson, who plays the part of Edward Cullen in Twilight and New Moon. Taylor steps in as a lead character in the sequel and could give RPattz a run for his money when he takes the spotlight.

Revealing Rob Pattinson Photos Surface Online

as a teen model have surfaced. “He was painfully shy and incredibly polite,” photographer John-Paul Pietrus, who shot Robert in 2003 for a spread that’s appeared in the South China Morning Post magazine, tells
Life & Style. “He was a bit nervous too because I had him in some pictures with a girl. The shoot was based on swimwear from the 1930s. He had his shirt off, so some skin might have made him nervous.”
