Dakota Fanning To Portray Cherie Currie Of The Runaways In New Biopic


Dakota Fanning has managed to hone her acting chops since her days as Sally in The Cat in the Hat and Tom Cruises’ daughter in War of the Worlds, and now the 15-year-old starlet is broadening her acting-palette, portraying Cherie Currie of Twilight star Kristen Stewart, who will be playing guitarist Joan Jett, Fanning will be tapping into the roots of the legendary lady-punk persona embodied by the Runaways, which might be a problem for the bright-eyed blondie and her squeaky clean image. Regardless, Fanning has one thing in common with Currie; the young actress is the same age as Currie was when she first joined the Runaways.

According to Currie’s autobiography “Neon Angel”, she lived life on the wild side, using Quaaludes and cocaine before she was even 18, so we’re really curious to see if Fanning will be able to channel her inner bad-ass to take on the roll.
