K-Stew To Play Joan Jett In Rock Biopic

| Filed under: Film FlickersTwilight

o-rlyyy.jpg

Kristen Stewart - who pouted her way through Twilight - has been tapped to play lesbian icon Joan Jett in the rock biopic The Runaways.

Uh, really?

We guess so, because Jett herself is executive producing the flick about the first commercially successful all-girls band, of which she was a member. The film will recount the band's teenage rise to stardom and their ultimate dissolution.

Music video director Floria Sigismondi penned the screenplay and is helming the project, set to commence production in 2009. Filming will work around Stewart's Twilight schedule, which has 2 sequels lined up.

We're worried that stiff Stewart will make a Womanizer performance out of the legendary Joan Jett.

But we'll see!

    Joan Jett and I had a night full of lady love back in the day. She knows how to please.



  2. 2

    Poor casting. I think Zoey Deschanel with brown contacts would be a far better choice. She is a good actor and can sing and play a variety of instruments.



  3. 3

    Her eyes are fuked up scary, I like that shit.



  4. 4

    ANDY27 WAS RECENTLY RELEASED FROM JAIL. THE CONVICTIONS INCLUDED BUGGERING A DOG AND PROSTITUTION. THIS IS WHY WE HAVE NOT SEEN HIS ANTICS UP UNTIL NOW! BEWARE HE IS A VERY DISTURBED INDIVIDUAL!



  5. 5

    Joan Jett is a lesbian!? I had no clue. Kristen Stewart sucks pretty much sucks no matter what rule she plays. But I will not matter because who the fuck cares about Joan Jett.



  6. 6

    Robin Tunney a few years back would have been better as Joan Jett…

    I wonder who play Lita Ford???!!!
    Andy Cherri Currie and Sandy fox???!!!



  7. 7

    WOW THIS IS RIVETING NEWS DIRECTLY FROM TMZ! GOOD JOB MARIO'S MOM!

    LITA FORD = SMELLY, DIRTY FUCKSTICK!



  12. 12

    Not a big fan of Kristen. I love Twilight, but the girl seems to have no personality. She's like a blob.

    Perez Hates Me ^^

    Re: LettyB Thanks All Her Fans! – did i miss something??
    andy came back today??



  15. 15

    Why are there only two sequels lined up for Twilight? There are three more books in the series, and the last one raps up everything. Also, none of the vampires are supposed to be aging, so if they are going to crank them out they better move it! The movie has already made more than 100 mil. Lots of movies have sequel after sequel with a hell of a lot less success than that.
    Sorry for the Twilight rant. This story led me to question this.

    Re: LettyB Thanks All Her Fans! – I THOUGHT ANDY WAS PEREZ'S PERSONAL COCKSUCKER, BALL TICKLER AND POWER BOTTOM?



  17. 17

    BOOO



  18. 18

    Ugh I can't stand Kristen Stewart, she always has a sour look on her face. Hope she doesn't stink up this movie as well!



  19. 19

    " I love Rocky Road…."



  20. 20

    Kristen was horrible in Twilight. She'll probably screw this up too.



  21. 21

    I think people are way to critical of Kristen Stewart. She'll not only "pull it off" but
    I believe she'll be great. Give the girl a break and a chance to prove herself. Trust me, they could have done a lot worse with the casting.



  22. 22

    PEREZ IS ANDY27



  23. 23

    I LOVE ROCK n' ROLL!



  24. 24

    This girl has got the personality of the paper towel I threw on the floor last night when I was done with my loving!!! HAHAHA!



  25. 25

    All I can say is: ew.



  26. 26

    Oh…and those who say she was horrible in Twilight? She was Bella Swan. Bella was SUPPOSED to be weird, shy, clumsy, dry, and emotionless. If you read the books, you'd know this.

    LOVE YA ALICE!



  42. 42

    I can't believe someone would actually hand pick Kristen to play themself in a movie. Unless that person really thinks that they are annoying like Kristen is. I guess that's one movie I won't be watching!



  43. 43

    WHY WHY WHY?!?!?!?! KRISTEN STEWART IS THE WORST ACTRESS ALIVE!!!!!! In Twilight she was HORRIBLE!!!! She was monotonous and boring. Her voice was so monotone and she wouldn't stop blinking!!! She is proof that you no longer need talent to make it in Hollywood, only a family who works in the business



  44. 44

    Personally i think some of you need to stfu.
    shes gonna do amazing.
    I cant wait! :)



  45. 45

    Ewww. Kristen Stewart sucks and she needs to lay off the coke. There are so many choices who would be better than her.



  46. 46

    God I hope you're wrong on this one Perez!

    Ch ch cherry bomb

    I don't know if I like this casting news.

    First of all, who the hell cares about Joan Jett? Secondly, KS can't act her way out of a paper bag!!

  50. fiona says – reply to this


    50

    She is dull and has a punkass teen attitude. She was rude to Letterman, and seemed really undereducated. I am not impressed with her at all.



  51. 51

    They should have Britney paly her she did cover her song in that movie Crossroads, lololol just joking damn Britney fucked up that song in the movie =)



  52. 52

    It would be so hot if JJ hooked up with Kat Von D.



  53. 53

    Perez if you read the Twilight book you will see that her character is a non-stop whiner so she had to play the role the same way.



  54. 54

    I don't think KS is an experienced enough actress to take on a role like Joan Jett. She should try taking experimental indie roles first.



  55. 55

    She's not hot enough to play Joan. Joan is still unbelievably gorgeus, and that girl just doesn't do her justice.

  56. Watty says – reply to this


    56

    She obviously impressed Joan Jett, since she is one of the producers of the movie. I think she will do good. She is young and has lots of potential. Who is going to see that movie anyways….

    ps- I do agree that Zoey Deschanel would have been a good choice too



  57. 57

    kristen stewart looks like a lesbian. she'll be perfect for the part. i hate her soo much, shes like a man



  58. 58

    Re: swandive
    It would be hotter is Nikki Sixx hooked up with me =)



  59. 59

    I thought you meant Kimberly Stewart by "K Stew". And that would be a better choice.



  60. 60

    Re: Solaera

    Zooey Deschanel is supposed to play Janis Joplin sometime, though that movie has been postponed due to fights with the Janis estate.

    Aren't there pics of this Twilight chick smoking The Ganja?



  61. 61

    I LOVE ROCK AND ROLL!



  62. 62

    Re: LettyB Thanks All Her Fans! – Sorry Letty, I didn't mean to copy you! I hadn't read the postings yet! :)



  63. 63

    i love kristen stewart. i haven't seen twilight so i can't give an opinion on that, but if any of you have ever seen speak i think you'll understand where i come from when i say i think she's great. i just think she has to a bit more particular about the roles she chooses. and shes so gay. wait for it.



  64. 64

    YALL STOP BASHING KRISTEN 4 GOD SAKES , SHE DID AN EXELLENT JOB PLAYING BELLA AND SHE IS GOING TO BE AWESOME PLAYING JOAN JETT

    SEE IN TO THE WILD SHE SINGS AND SINGS GREAT GIVE HER A BREAK WILL YA



  65. 65

    I don't wanna tick off the crazed twilight fans but I don't care for Kristen Stewart.She's to plain and boring.and messangers SUCKED does anyone remember that movie that was hyped up for NOTHING



  66. 66

    she was a horrible bella and that should be an easy character to play…im sure she'll ruin this too. she has no personality in any of hte moives she does (have you seen into the wild?)



  67. 67

    Kristen is a great cast! Has anybody seen Kristen in Into the Wild? She cowrote a song in the movie and performed two different songs. I might also add that the songs were pretty much performed live on the set.



  68. 68

    Crispin Glover absolutely, positively HAS to play the coolest cat on these scene, any scene at any time, manager Kim "I'm sexually abusive to the entire world" Fowley.



  69. 69

    She's such a tool. I agree with Solaera, who said Zooey would be a good choice. Kristen is such an emotionless actress– it worked for her when she was younger, in movies such as Speak and Panic Room, but it's gotten tiring. She needs to step it up.



  70. 70

    Ok Perez, have you EVER seen Kristen in anything (other than Twilight)? She's a really good actress, I wish you'd give her a break. You're just jealous ’cause she gets to make out with Robert in two more sequels!!! LUCKY HER!!! This is what she was probably talking about when she did moviefone's unscripted! I'm sure she'll be GREAT in the role!



  71. 71

    these people dont know how bella is suppose to be.
    ANYONE could portray bella.

    she's EVERYONE.

    kristen stewart did an amazing job.

    perez, you're a fag. i hate you. i used to love you but not aymore.

    you just cant accept the fact that kristen doesnt have big boobs, blonde hair, super tall and is always happy.



  72. 72

    Fuck me with a rusty knife!!!

    I love Joan Jett so why is this ho Kirsten gonna fuck up the film?!?!?!

    The only thing worst than this is if they actually had Kirsten Dunst play Joan Baez, then I'd really puke!



  73. 73

    It astounds me sometimes how these people end up being “stars”… this Kristen chick is very ordinary looking, even unattractive… same goes for that Elizabeth Banks who keeps popping up here & there… she looks like a boring suburban housewife.



  74. 74

    SHUT THE FUCK UP PEREZ.
    SHES BEEN IN OTHER MOVIES BESIDES TWILIGHT.
    and how the fuck would you know how she acted.. you were to busy perving on Robert.
    you sick cunt.



  75. 75

    Re: rob pat and miley are my life now
    Just because your so fucking rpattz obsessed and jealous. get over yourself child.
    Kristen is so talented, beautiful and amazing.



  76. 76

    Re: LovePatz – I LOVE YOU! XD



  77. 77

    Re: Hollywoodsucksss

    AND a pot head.



  78. 78

    I think she'll do great as Joan Jett.



  79. 79

    Christ, she's beautiful.
    she'll kick this movie old school. it'll be epic. just you wait and see PH. you arse.



  80. 80

    I love them both - Kristen will be amazing!



  81. 81

    I wonder who will play Lita Ford??



  82. 82

    oh my



  83. 83

    Kristen is a great choice… she can sing and play guitar. See 'into the wild', ok?



  84. 84

    Kristen is a great actress, and she can sing&play guitar. :P



  85. 85

    perez,
    my guess is that youve NEVER read twilight because, although stewart isnt one of my favorite actressess, she played the character of bella brilliantly capturing the bland yet beautiful persona. she isnt stiff, she just has a certain personality and while her characters arent filled with a bubbl personality she is able to portray a seemingly boring girl with tons of emotion and that takes someone who is not "stiff"



  86. 86

    I always thought Janet from Three's Company looked like Joan Jett



  87. 87

    People shouldn't judge Kristen based on her performance in Twilight. She is a wonderful actress if you guys would just take the time to see her other movies. Into The Wild anyone?

  88. helsy says – reply to this


    88

    ha.. ironic.. she's playing a lesbian and a gay man in K-11 (with Nikki Reed, her lover), when she's lesbian herself.



  89. 89

    KStew looks pretty when she smiles that's all I asked of her in Twilight! does anyone else find it oddly coincedntal that Rob is going to portray a gay man in Little Ashes and Kristen is gonna play a lesbian wow there suited perfect for each other oh be still my little shipper heart lol



  90. 90

    ugh, god… that girl ruins EVERYTHING



  91. 91

    I am so excited that they are making a movie about the Runaways! popculturecurmudgeon.blogspot.com



  92. 92

    So this is what she was so excited about.



  93. 93

    if anyone should play Joan Jett, it should be Kate Moennig!



  94. 94

    Are you serious? The chick couldn't act for shit as "Bella" in Twilight.



  95. 95

    I think she will do just fine since she acts like a lez. In a few years you will hear about her coming out.



  96. 96

    This stupid bitch can NOT act! How the hell is she getting work?! Seriously, I can find a better actress on the street in 2 minutes!



  97. 97

    Re: LiLu Multipass
    I SEE THAT MOST OF THE PEOPLE HERE BASH HER WITHOUT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT THE GIRL
    SHE HAS DONE MOSTLY INDIE FILMS CAKE EATERS, COLD CREEK MANOR, FIRECE PEOPLE , IN TO THE WILD WELCOMME TO THE RILEYS ECT ECT

    SHE IS 18 AND HAS DONE OVER 25 FILMS THERE IS URE INFO

    HAS WORKED WITH DENIRO SEAN PENN JODIE FOSTER AND DILAN MCDURMONT , AND REACENTLY WITH JAMES GANDOLFINI IN WELCOME TO THE RILEYS WHERE SHE PLAYS A STRIPPER ( THERE GOES THE STIFF THING)

    SO ONE MORE TIME LEAVE KRISTEN JAYMES STEWART ALONE FUCK YOU ALL BASHERS

    I AM A KSTEW FANATIC SO LEAVE HER THE FUCK ALONE ALRIGHT



  98. 98

    Kristen Stewart is a terrible actress. She is so dull, its painful. But then again, she is a stoner who hasn't even finished high school, so I guess it's not all that surprising that she looks and acts blank all the time, on and off screen.



  99. 99

    I'm glad perez hates Kristen stewart. ugh! i hate that horsefaced prick. She ruined "the bella image" I hate how reckless she is, that she smokes pot outside her front door. That bitch!

    Children look up to you u horrendous SLUT!
    ihope u got an accident so someone prettier replaces u soon on NEWMOON
    You so not deserve the fame uve got now!
    especially the money u got from twilight, u dont deserve all of it.
