Scouty Scoops Runaways

I know next to nothing about this project except for the obvious..the young starlets of Hollywoodland are brought together to tell the story of The Runaways; AKA the band that introduced Joan Jett to the world. Who gets to play Joan Jett??? Kristen Stewart. Really? Listen, this isn't going to be an anti-twilight rant, but having seen Stewart in many films now, I just don't think she's ready to play a woman as powerful as Jett. Of course, if she blows it out of the water, I'll be the first to congratulate and say I was wrong, but right now I feel Stewart needs to do some growing as an actress. Rounding out the cast is our girl Scout Taylor-Compton as Lita Ford (again...really?!) and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie. It really looks more like they packed the cast with an "up and coming A list", but you never know. Lightening in a bottle and all that. It could happen.
