The Runaways filmThe Runaways feature film is almost here, and we have a few details, images, and clips to tide you over for now.

First up, check out some new images here below from the film of Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett, Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie, and the rest of the cast. These are some great shots and I feel they do a great job of depicting the actresses as the rock and rolling bad girl musicians. [Updated: I’ve added a few more pictures, the last four below are new today from the movie’s official Facebook page.]

Next, there’s a new TV spot for the film. It’s a quick one, but totally worth watching as there’s a few extra scenes in there that were not in the trailers. The more I see, the more I know I’m going to love this movie.

Lastly, the all-important soundtrack! This is a biopic about an all-girl rock band from the 1970s, so not only is there the originals and covers of The Runaways‘ songs, as well as Joan Jett‘s “Don’t Abuse Me,” but also some good seventies tunage from the likes of The Sex Pistols, David Bowie, MC5, and the Sex Pistols. In the film, Stewart and Fanning do their own vocals, and let me tell you, as a life-long Runaways fan I think these ladies not only look the part, but they also sound it too! The Runaways Original Motion Picture Soundtrack CD hits stores on March 23, 2010 — a few days after the film’s March 19 release — but is available for pre-order right now! Also, ff you order the digital download version of the album from the Runaways Soundtrack site, you’ll get it on March 16, 2010!

Check out the full soundtrack listing here below.

Now, Entertainment Tonight has aired a sneak peek clip of the film, which stars Twilight: New Moon‘s Kristen Stewart (as Jett) and Datoka Fanning (as singer Cherie Currie).

Watch the clip here below.

The Runaways

The Runaways is a little independent film based on the 1970s rock band of the same name that featured Joan Jett, Cherie Currie, and Lita Ford. The movie stars young up-and-coming actresses Dakota Fanning (I Am Sam, Push) as Currie and Kristen Stewart (Panic Room, The Twilight Saga) as Jett. It will first debut next month at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, but it doesn’t need to worry about being picked up by a studio for distribution anymore; that part of the quest is now taken care of. It’s being reported that Bob Berney and Bill Pohlad‘s Apparition Films has officially acquired the rights to the film, and already has plans to release it on March 19, 2010.

The Runaways is directed by relative newcomer Floria Sigismondi, who based the story on Cherie Currie’s book, Neon Angel: the Cherie Currie Story. The movie also stars Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II) as Lita Ford, Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development, Whip It) as Robin, Michael Shannon (Bug, Revolutionary Road) as Kim Fowley, and Tatum O’Neal (Paper Moon, Rescue Me) as Marie Harmon.

Twilight star Kristen Stewart has been tapped to play rock queen Joan Jett in The Runaways, a music biopic based Jett’s 1970’s all-girl band.

The film is scheduled to begin production in 2009, but will have to accommodate Stewart’s commitments to the two Twilight sequels, the first of which — New Moon — expected to start shooting in early 2009.

The story will follow Jett and singer Cherie Currie‘s rise to stardom as teenage rock stars in The Runaways and all the debauchery and disillusionment that came with it, which eventually led to their disbanding.

As previously reported, Jett will executive produce, while Floria Sigismondi , who wrote the script based on Currie’s memoirs, will direct. The initial report noted that the script was adapted from Currie’s unpublished memoirs, but the singer did pen an autobiography in the late 1980’s titled Neon Angel: The Cherie Currie Story, and this film was originally to be titled Neon Angels.
