Dakota Fanning to Join Kristen Stewart in 'The Runaways'


Dakota Fanning
Dakota Fanning, the star of 'The Secret Life of Bees', is reported to be in talks for portraying Cheri Currie in biopic movie starring 'Twilight' actress Kristen Stewart, 'The Runaways'.


Moving on from her clairvoyant character in "Push", Dakota Fanning may be seen as a female rocker for her next movie project. The 15-year-old actress has been reported to be in final negotiation to star as the '70s all-female hard rock band's lead vocalist, Cheri Currie, in "The Runaways".

If she indeed joins the cast ensemble, she will share screen with "Twilight" actress, Kristen Stewart, who was tapped earlier to play Currie's fellow band member, Joan Jett. Fanning is currently in the same age of Currie when she made her debut as the lead singer of the band that delivered hit songs, such as "Cherry Bomb".

"The Runaways" will revolve around a '70s girl band of the same name formed by Joan Jett and Currie. The movie will follow the teenage band as they experience meteoric rise, and chronicles their dissolution and disillusionment. With Jett serving as the film's executive producer and Floria Sigismondi being the director and writer, it is expected to begin production in late spring.

Making her breakthrough with 2001 "I Am Sam", Dakota Fanning has since starred in various movies, including "War of the Worlds", "Charlotte's Web" and "The Secret Life of Bees". Early 2009 saw her taking major roles in "Coraline" as well as "Push". She has recently been linked to "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" for the role of Jane.
