Dakota Fanning has once again slipped into the shoes of sadistic Volturi member Jane. On Wednesday evening, December 15, the 16-year-old actress was caught on camera as she joined fellow Volturi cast members in the New Orleans set of "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn" to film a few scenes.
Though she was all wrapped up in a parka, the "Push" actress looked chic in her costume. Pictures from the set capture her laughing and having a good time on set with the likes of Cameron Bright, Michael Sheen, Christopher Heyerdahl and Jamie Campbell Bower. Stars of the series, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, however, were not seen joining them.
Dakota joined the "Twilight Saga" series as the pain-inflicting vampire Jane starting from "The Twilight Saga's New Moon". Talking about portraying such wicked character, the Cherie Currie of "The Runaways" previously admitted, "It was cool to get to transform myself into more »
Marvel has long been saying it intends to make a movie based on its African superhero Black Panther.
The studio's intentions were further signalled in Iron Man 2, released earlier this year. In one scene (see images below), there's a map of the world that highlights part of Africa, and director Jon Favreau stated on the Blu-ray that this was intended as a reference to Black Panther.
So who might play the role? Well, Djimon Hounsou (pictured right), who voiced the character in a short-lived animated series, now says he hopes to star in the eventual live-action movie.

In Elephant White, Hounsou (that’s Oscar-nominated actor Djimon Hounsou to you) last seen in 2009′s Push (didn’t see it – although I caught a recent screening of The Tempest, which isn’t out yet), portrays an assassin hired by a businessman to avenge the murder of his daughter by white slave traders in Thailand.
Shooting was scheduled to begin earlier in March this year, in Bangkok, for Nu Image/Millennium, with Pachya Pinkaew (director of fanboy 2003 martial arts favorite Ong Bak).
Production is apparently complete on the $10 million film, according to IMDBPro, with a 2011 release likely. I couldn’t find a trailer or any clips from it, but I’d say this will likely be a straight-to-dvd release. »
After offering up all the details he could reveal about "Sinatoro," Morrison also shared a few updates on some of the other projects he's involved with these days, including the long-awaited adaptation of his "We3" miniseries, the recently announced "Joe The Barbarian" movie, and that mysterious BBC television series he's working on with "Push" director Paul McGuigan and actor Stephen Fry.
When I spoke to Morrison in April, the writer lamented the slow pace of the "We3" adaptation, which follows a trio of weaponized animals that escape a government lab. According to Morrison, the comic's high level of violence caused some problems in the development process, even though the screenplay he penned for the film was significantly less violent.

The actress who plays Kira Hollis in "Push" has been dating Joe for about a year before splitting in 2009, but when asked about her thoughts on the 21-year-old singer's new romance, she acted as if she has forgotten who he is.

Summit Entertainment likes to keep its "Twilight" stars in the family. The studio kept Robert Pattinson in the mix with romantic drama "Remember Me" and cut another check to Billy Burke for the upcoming action flick "Drive Angry." Then there's Dakota Fanning, who not only starred in the sci-fi "Push" but in the last two "Twilight" flicks as well. And as she gears up for work on "Breaking Dawn," she just might be staying put with Summit.

She has recently tackled the role of rocker Cherie Currie as she starred opposite her "Twilight Saga" co-star Kristen Stewart in biopic "The Runaways". It will also be her latest project for Summit after the "Twilight Saga" series and "Push".

The book followed 18th century English aristocrat Sir Percy Blakeney, a highly intelligent and noble baron who played up his wimpish and foppish personality by day. At night he became a dashing masked vigilante who leads a secret society whose mission is to help French nobility escape from the guillotine during the year known as 'The Reign of Terror' which followed the start of the French Revolution.
Neil Jackson ("Push," "Blade: The Series," "Stargate: Sg-1") will play the titular masked vigilante, while a host of "high profile cameos" are expected to appear in the movie. The aim is to do something akin to Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes" - a contemporary feeling but period-set blockbuster take on the literary tale.
