Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning in First Picture from The Runaways
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The first picture from the upcoming film THE RUNAWAYS has hit the Sundance website. The pic features Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie. The film tells the rise and struggles of one of the first all girl, teenage rock bands (The Runaways) that were just as famous for their music as they were for their hardcore partying and rock-star lifestyles. The film also stars Michael Shannon and Tatum O’Neal and is directed by Floria Sigismondi, who also wrote the screenplay.
This is a chance for Stewart to prove she’s more than just the whiny Bella from TWILIGHT. Music bios are always a good time and it seems like the Runaways have a very exciting story.
