Mackenzie Foy, the young actress who plays Renesmee — the daughter of Bella and Edward — in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 and 2, has been cast in Wish You Well, a drama co-starring Ellen Burstyn and Josh Lucas, EW has confirmed.

As first reported by Variety, the 11-year-old actress (who we know enjoys swimming and popsicles) will play a girl who moves from New York to a Virginia farm to live in with her great -grandmother in the 1940s. Darnell Martin (who penned Cadillac Records) will direct, with the script will be adapted from David Baldacci’s best selling novel.

This is the third movie that Foy has booked since Breaking Dawn: she’ll also be seen in Plastic Jesus, co-starring Paul Schneider and The Conjuring, co-starring Ron Livingston, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, out next year.
