Dakota Fanning to join Kristen Stewart in 'The Runaways'

Posted on

Fifteen-year-old Dakota Fanning is negotiating to play Cherie Currie in The Runaways, the biopic of the ’70s all-girl band, according to Variety. Fanning is the same age as Currie was when she debuted as the lead singer of the Runaways with hard-edged tunes like “Cherry Bomb.” Twilight star Kristen Stewart has already signed on to play Joan Jett, who will executive-produce the film. Fanning is also booked to play a vampire in the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon.
