The 19-year-old star has taken on the role of Runaways star Joan Jett alongside her New Moon co-star Dakota Fanning as Cherie Curie, Scout Taylor-Compton as Lita Ford and Stella Maeve as Sandy West.
Kristen plays the famed guitarist in the film, which depicts the 1970s all-girl band’s meteoric rise and fall.
The trailer begins with the narration, ‘In 1975, rock was a man’s world, until…’, then continue to show Kristen sporting a jet-black mullet and belting out The Runaways hit Cherry Bomb.
While we love Kristen as Bella it’s nice to see her take on a different role in the film that has been picked up for next month’s Sundance Festival with a planned release date of March 19, 2010.
