Kristen Stewart-starring The Runaways is now slated for a US release on March 19, 2010. Bob Berney’s new distribution company Apparition has taken all US rights to the film, which will world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. New Moon co-stars Stewart (Joan Jett) and Dakota Fanning (Cherie Currie) star in the story of the groundbreaking female rock group The Runaways. Michael Shannon plays the group’s manager. Music video veteran Floria Sigismondi directs for producers River Road Entertainment and Linson Entertainment; Joan Jett is one of the film’s executive producers. “Floria has crafted a beautiful story of Joan and Cherie’s tumultuous relationship on and off stage, as well as a kick ass rock ‘n’ roll journey,” said Apparition head Berney in a statement.
