Dakota Fanning is in talks to join the cast of the Runaways biopic, in which Kristen Stewart is already signed to play Joan Jett.
Fanning is negotiating to play lead singer Cherie Currie in “The Runaways,” the biopic of the ’70s all-girl band that already has “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart playing Joan Jett. At 15, Fanning is the same age Currie was when she made her debut with the Runaways as the lead singer who belted out hard-edged tunes like “Cherry Bomb.” Currie became caught up in drugs and a hard-partying lifestyle.

Hmm, let’s see… Dakota Fanning looking creepily grown up lately… 15-year-olds… “Cherry Bomb”… …Yeah, I’m just gonna leave out the back before the cops show up, if you guys don’t mind.
