People.com has your news:

It’s (finally!) official: Dakota Fanning is getting her fangs.

The 15-year-old actress is set to star in New Moon as Jane – a sinister vampire with an angelic exterior who works for the Volturi, a rep for Summit Entertainment confirms to PEOPLE.

“New Moon” is set to shoot in Vancouver later this mount for a November release. All the main actors are back, including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner.

The plot for the sequel:

Bella Swan is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen, but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with Jacob Black. Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested.

Sounds like what happened to me last Summer. Minus the whole loyalties tested part, I mean.
