Joan Jett Excited about "Runaways" film

Joan Jett has expressed optimism and excitement about the upcoming film about her all-female '70s rock band The Runaways. The film will star Kristen Stewart as Jett and Dakota Fanning as Runaways singer Cherie Currie. It is tentatively due for release early next year.

"It was very surreal and hard to put a word on," Jett, who executive produced the film, said. "If anything it definitely made me smile. It reinforces my love for the band and the fact I think it was an extremely important band, regardless of our level of success in America. It just reinforces my love of the whole time and of the band and what we did and how it was implausible and improbable at the same time."

As for the actress portraying her in the film, Jett has been impressed. "Kristen was so into it, into the whole vibe of doing this," Jett said. "I think she felt a weight and a responsibility to interpret it correctly. She was really serious about it and was watching me and asking me all sorts of questions, from speech aspects to watching my body language, watching where I stood, watching my guitar playing. She really worked hard to get it right."
