I am super psyched to see that Kristen Stewart is playing Joan Jett in the new movie, The Runaways, a coming of age flick depicting the band of same name.
Dakota Fanning is slated to play Cherie Curie. This promises to be a real bag of fun.
The film features the raucus group of 16 year old girls that comprised the original band.
The Runaways was Joan Jett’s first band, and featured singer Lita Ford, played by Alessandra Toressani. Hits like Cherry Bomb made this band an iconic punk band of the 70’s.
The movie will definitley rock. As will the music. I have been a fan for over a decade. Yay! Film is scheduled to release in 2010.
