'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' news: Maggie Grace is Irina, Mackenzie Foy in running for Renesmee

It's hard enough waiting until next November for the first part of the final installment of The Twilight Saga, "Breaking Dawn," but Twilight-related news has been a little slow in coming.

But now there is some casting news floating about: Maggie Grace, known for her roles on TV's "Lost" and the film "Taken," is confirmed as Irina, a vampire from another "vegetarian" coven. Rami Malek of HBO's "The Pacific" is confirmed as Egyptian vampire Benjamin.

And the latest is the casting of the vampire/human hybrid, Bella and Edward's daughter Renesmee. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Mackenzie Foy "is inches away" from being cast in the pivotal role.

A relative unknown, Foy is nine years old and has done some modeling, as well as appearing in one episode each of "FlashForward" and "'Til Death."
