New Moon Director on Dakota Fanning

October 28, 2009

twilight-saga-new-moon-volturi-posterChris Weitz, who directed The Twilight Saga: New Moon, is popping up in more and more interviews lately.  That probably means he’s finally done editing the movie and getting all the effects right — always a good sign.

He recently talked to MTV about the Volturi, especially shooting with Dakota Fanning (Jane) and Michael Sheen (Aro):

For Sheen, it was a chance to play a vampire, versus the werewolf he had played in the “Underworld” series.

“He is one of those extraordinary British actors who is adaptable to any circumstance and who has not a millimeter of ego,” Weitz said. “Michael kind of approached this role — not as a gag but thought, ‘Well, what would a 2,000-year-old vampire be like?’ “

For Fanning, it was the chance to be the bad girl for once.

“She’s never really gotten to play a bad person before, probably because she is a very good person. She is really a lovely young person. But I think she had some fun playing, really, the most evil of all the bad guys,” Weitz said. “[Jane]‘s bad news. Very bad.”

    At first, I was completely against Dakota being Jane, but now, after seeing her in the trailers… I think It was a good choice… I got over my vision of Jane, and Dakota is a brilliant actress, so I’m more excited than ever.

    im looking forward to seeing sheen play the vampire, to see which he plays better [wolf or vampire]. and as for dakota, i agree. ive never really seen her as a bad charater. but i think the role suits her for the role of jane.
