First Look: Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett in "The Runaways"

Posted: June 12th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
First Look: Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett in "The Runaways"Submit Comment
Back in December, we revealed that "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart will portray Joan Jett in "The Runaways," the rock 'n' roll biopic of the 1970s all-girl band. We now have the first set photo of Stewart, which you can check out below.

The Runaways were hugely influential as the first successful all-girl hard rock band; its members included guitarists Jett and Lita Ford, drummer Sandy West, singer-keyboardist Cherie Currie and bassist Jackie Fox. The band was brought together in late 1975 by impresario Kim Fowley, who thought a novelty act of teenaged girls performing in leather and lace would be an easy sell, but the girls ended up proving to be serious and influential musicians with songs like "Cherry Bomb." The band lasted about four years together, falling apart over management and money issues.

The film will revolve around Jett and Currie and follow them from the band's meteoric rise as teenagers to their dissolution and disillusionment.

Video director Floria Sigismondi wrote the screenplay and is directing.

Poor casting choice, Joan Jett should be played by someone who has talent... pity

I wouldnt put to much crap on her recent performances- it was the director of Twilight who had her do nothing but stare blankly for 40 minutes of the movie...she's stale in that- no lying- but look at her performances in Into The Wild, In the Land of Women, Undertow, and The Cake Eaters. Kristen Stewart IS a great little actress. I think she just knows when she's filming bubblegum and doesnt bring the chops. Films like this she seems to try hard for.

i'm gonna have to side with prevalent on this one, she is a good actress, i like her in Into the Wild and adventureland twilight was just a sh*tty movie, slowly paced, and just not the interesting, could have been cut by at least 40mins. i think she will do good in this movie, prove her acting chops

I was excited at first. I thought the caption read: Kristen Stewart Runs Away.

LOL... Nice! Wait for the Freddie Mercury Story. Even Depp tried for that role (wanting it) but lost to (so far) Sasha Baron Cohen. Freddie... near 4 octave range voice. Queen's music has influenced dozens of bands (so admittedly by all those bands), over 300 albums sold. And they're proposing wasting electricity to run a sh*t movie like this on the screen about some never, hardly have-beens?!

What's next? A Mr. Mister movie... or Nena and her 7 Red f*cking balloons?! I can't wait!

That was 99 balloons wasn't it?! Only good thing about that video was her crotch in those tight jeans.

For some reason i think Keira Knightley looks a smidge like Joan Jett...
