On Thursday afternoon a representative for the star confirmed she would not shoot the film and chalked it up to the actress’ desire to finish her senior year of high school. The representative said that Fanning will shoot the two “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” films (in which she plays Jane, a role that brings a decidedly lighter workload), and may shoot a smaller independent movie. But she will not take on any significant roles until after she graduates this spring.

Based on Gayle Forman’s young-adult novel about a teenage musician, her boyfriend and a fatal car accident, “Stay” has been a high priority for “Twilight” studio Summit.
