The Runaways: 2010 Film Release (Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning)
Twilight and Joan Jett fans alike should mark their calendars for March 19, 2010. Apparition and River Road Entertainment will debut The Runaways at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and then the film opens wide two months later.
Directed by video visionary Floria Sigismondi (The White Stripes, David Bowie, Christina Aguilera) and starring Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning and recent Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), The Runaways explores the groundbreaking, all-female teenage band from the 1970′s fronted by rock icon Joan Jett.
I am totally on board with and excited for this movie, primarily because of Jett’s story; that she is one of the executive producers on the film is a huge bonus and guarantees authenticity.
