War Of The Worlds actress Dakota Fanning has said it would be "wonderful" to star in the sequel to vampire movie Twilight.

It's been rumoured that director Chris Weitz wants the 14-year-old to play Jane in New Moon.

"I'm a really big fan of that series and the first film and all the actors in it," explained Fanning. "It would be wonderful."

Released in late 2008, Twilight starred Kristen Stewart and Edward Cullen.

"I mean, I think it's too soon to tell if I'll for sure be doing it, but it's so great," Fanning told Hollywood Access. "I don't think they'll put a lot of make up on me, I'm pretty white already!"

The film series is based on a set of novels by Stephenie Meyer.

"Pretty much all my friends and everyone I know is very big fans of that," said Fanning, "so it'd be great."
