Dakota Fanning is ready to bare her fangs as vampire Jane in the Twilight sequel New Moon.

"I really hope it works out," Fanning, 14, told Hitfix.com while promoting her current thriller, Push. "It would be a really fantastic experience, I'm sure."

Just last week it was reported the young star was offered the role sans audition because director Chris Weitz is so confident that Fanning is right for the part.

Talk about a perfect fit: A member of the deadly Volturi, the Jane character is described in a casting notice as a petite blonde with a "Botticelli angel-like face [and] crimson irises."

If everything falls into place, Fanning will join returning stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner. Filming begins in March in the U.S. and Italy, with New Moon set to open in November.
