The report says the 14-year-old actress did not have to audition for the role.

"They just offered it to her outright, and now they're in negotiations," a source says.

This should be pretty good news for die-hard Twilight fans who had organized an online petition demanding that Summit Entertainment give Fanning the role of "Jane."
