January 14, 2010, (Sawf News) - A biopic of the first successful all-girl hard rock band, The Runaways starring Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart will premiere on January 24 at the Sundance Film Festival before its March release.
Dakota, 15, plays Cherie Currie, lead singer of the '70s band with Kristen Stewart playing band mate Joan Jett.
Also in the cast are Danielle Riley Keough as Marie Currie, Scout Taylor-Compton as Lita Ford and Michael Shannon as Kim Fowley.
The movie follows the band's meteoric rise as teenagers to their dissolution and disillusionment after four years due to management and money disputes
It's helmed by music video director Floria Sigismond, whose past work includes Marilyn Manson's Tourniquet, Christina Aguilera's Fighter and The White Stripes' Blue Orchid.
Like Dakota now, Currie was 15-year-old when she made her debut with The Runaways as the lead singer.
Currie later got caught up with drugs and a hard-partying lifestyle before settling down in marriage.
Stewart's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will hit theaters June 30
