Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning take some time away from the “Twilight” films and rocked out with rock icon, Joan Jett.

 

The two actresses star in a biopic about Joan Jett’s 70′s band, ‘The Runaways‘. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24.

 

People.com reports that on Saturday night while Jett was performing in Park City, Utah, she asked the girls to come up on stage and thanked the girls for their work on the film. Jett continued to rock out with her band, The Blackhearts as Stewart and Fanning watched from backstage.

 

In the film Stewart and Fanning star as guitarist Joan Jett and singer Cherie Currie. They were both members of the 70′s band, The Runaways, known for their hit song “Cherry Bomb” among others. Other band members included drummer Sandy West played by Stella Maeve, and lead guitarist Lita Ford played by, Scout Taylor-Compton. The movie is based on the book ‘Neon Angel The Cherie Currie Story‘ which is a memoir by Cherie Currie. The book is about the experiences as a rock star, but also delivers a strong anti drug warning to teens and others.

 

The Runaways will open in theaters on March 19, 2010.
