http://movieweb.com/person/mackenzie-foy/Mackenzie Foy is Renesmee Earlier today we http://movieweb.com/the-twilight-saga-breaking-dawn-adds-maggie-grace/learned that Maggie Grace has joined The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn to play Irina, and now Entertainment Weekly is reporting that 9-year old Mackenzie Foy is in negotiations to play Renesmee, Edward and Bella's vampire/human love child that's a central role in the final installment of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

A difficult task for Mackenzie Foy will be how to portray Renesmee, a 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 Mackenzie Foy's face would be digitally transferred onto the face of a younger child.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 was released November 18th, 2011.

      @drifter49 ... I was wondering if I read that wrong. I screened these books for my son and I could've sworn she was still young when the book ended and I'm not sure where they get the whole 7yrs either. However, without spoiling for those who haven't read and want to go see this (not me)... I can make an educated guess as to why they're going to push her to 17yrs old.

                On top of that.This poor innocent girl staring along side Kristen Stewart?This girl is going to be scarred and ruined at the sametime.And Maggie Grace being in this crapfest of a movie is a crying shame.

                  They've just f*cked it up.Their child does not reach the age of seventeen in the book.She's still practically a child near the end.Why would Bella put a seventeen year old child to bed?Stupid f*cking people.F*cking script writer.Hollywood always f*cks things up.
