"Twilight's" Kristen Stewart Ready to Rock and Roll as Joan Jett 

Miss Kristen Stewart is having a mighty good year! Fresh from the super success of "Twilight," she will be portraying rocker Joan Jett in "The Runaways," a biopic of the 1970s all-girl band!

Set to direct is Floria Sigismondi who also wrote the screenplay, and Miss Jett herself will be an executive producer.

Miss Jett, of course, is famous for the song "I Love Rock and Roll." But before she made that mega-hit, she was a member of The Runaways back in the 70s.

The group is best known for their leather and lace outfits, and for their hit, "Cherry Bomb."

This should be interesting! One of the most influential all-girl bands deserve a film, and the addition of Stewart makes it sweeter!
