Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett

Kristen Stewart is finishing filming New Moon and is starting on The Runaways. The photo above shows her as Joan Jett. The biopic is being written and directed by Italian music video director Floria Sigismondi.

Dakota Fanning will play Cherie Currie, Stella Maeve will play Sandy West, and Alessandra Torresani will play Lita Ford. The Runaways were a rock band from the 70's best known for songs like "Cherry Bomb," "Queens of Noise," "Neon Angels," and "Born to Be Bad." The group was active for roughly four years and disbanded amidst money and management disagreements in 1979. The story in the movie will center on Jett and Curie specifically and detail the rise and fall of the group.

Do you think Stewart manages to look like Joan Jett?
