Entertainment Weekly, a very reliable source of insider information, has just posted this on their site:
Itís a big day for Twihards. First Maggie Grace signs on to play Irina. Now EW.com has learned that little 9-year old Mackenzie Foy is inches away from signing on to play Renesmee, Edward and Bellaís vampire/human love child thatís a central role in the final installment of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
Itís not yet clear how the diminutive actress, whoís appeared in one episode each of television shows FlashForward and ĎTil Death, will portray the character who ages a full 17 years in only seven. Sources have suggested that director Bill Condon will employ similar digital effects to those used by David Fincher in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, where Foyís face would be digitally transferred onto the face of a younger child. Itís also probable that the studio will hire a younger child in some capacity, too.
I'm not the only one who thinks she would be perfect, right?
