    New Runaways Movie

    This one's for you, unchained....

    Just read in Rolling Stone today that there's a new movie about The Runaways coming out. Dakota Fanning is playing Cheri Currie, and an actress I'm not familiar with, Kristen Stewart is playing Joan Jett.

    Here's a link: The Runaways movie

    Should be interesting - it's based on Cheri Currie's book, I think...

    Oh yeah, i've been waiting for this for months!

    I am currently reading Currie's book (and it's excellent, really in depth).
    Lita Ford, apparently, refused to offer up her life story for the film, so her & the Bassist get glossed over.

    Joan, Cherrie & Sandy figure prominently, though.
    Jackie Fox is trying to sue the producers!

    I've heard Dakota is great in this, and Stewart as well.
    Apparently, Joan made Kristen cry on set!

    Kris & i saw it on Thursday, and i fucking loved it!

    Dakota Fanning was amazing, even better than Kristen Stewart's Joan Jett.
    The guy playing Kim Fowley ruled, as well.

    A really well acted & interesting rock 'n roll movie.
    They really nailed that whole mid to late 70's vibe!

    Cool! I'll have to check it out - hopefully it'll be one of the movies the $2 movie house chooses to show here. Usually places like that get second run pictures, but for some reason this one gets first run flicks. I like this theatre!
