Kristen Stewart To Portray Joan Jett

Ultra popular Twilight starlet Kristen Stewart is set to portray Joan Jett in ‘The Runaways,’ the rock ‘n’ roll biopic of the 1970s all-girl band, according to Hollywood Reporter.

The Runaways were hugely influential as the first commercially successful all-girl hard rock band.

The band lasted about four years, falling apart over management and money issues.

Jett continued her rock career into the ’80s, forming the Blackhearts and recording hits like ‘I Love Rock N’ Roll’. The film will follow Jett and her band’s meteoric rise as teenagers. .

Kristen will reprise her role as Belle in ‘New Moon’ and it is expected to shoot in the beginning of 2009. ‘Twilight’ has made over $120 million since opening November 21. Photo: Fame.

    I think she’ll make a great Joan Jett!

    Wow, some of you hate just because she kissed Rob?

    I like how she can do more than one roll at a time. She doesn’t just want to be known as Bella from the Twilight series, which is a good thing! I’m glad she isn’t going to be stuck as one character.
