    According to a Variety report, Dakota Fanning is considering the role of Cheri Currie in The Runaways, a biopic of the punk band that also featured Joan Jett. Currie's autobiography, Neon Angels, provides the plot of the film, which already has Kristen Stewart (of Twilight fame) playing Jett's part.

    While The Runaways is currently in its pre-production phase, a 2010 release date is planned at this point.
