Joan Jett talks about working with Kristen on ‘The Runaways’ in Rolling Stone Brazil

Translated by Translation.com

The singer is in the country for the first time in April at the festival Lollapalooza in Sao Paulo and during an interview with the RS Brazil she commented on the film that tells the story of his band and on the performance of Kristen Stewart.

The history of The Runaways was shown in 2010 in the movie ‘The Runaways’ – Girls of Rock, starring Kristen Stewart in the role of Joan Jett ( “She was extraordinary, it was great to work with her,” says the artist, who served as executive producer of the film) and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie. For Joan, the principal merit of long was to present the band for the new generation. “I think that showed the many girls who did not know. AND I think it was one of the reasons why Kristen decided to make the film“, says.

SWATH, Cosmopolis, and OTR strong contenders for Cannes 2012

Cannes is still a couple of months away so anything can happen, and much can change so this is our more level-headed, buyer-beware cautious entry into the world of speculation that tends to become engulfed in a lot of wishful thinking. All signs point to another strong festival, with a top tier list of filmmakers likely to make the journey.

“On The Road” (dir. Walter Salles)

Cast: Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Tom Sturridge, Sam Riley, Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Steve Buscemi, Terrence Howard

With production on the film beginning way back in August 2010, and additional photography happening last spring, it has been a slow but steady path for this highly anticipated, years in development adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s seminal novel. The director gave fans good news in January when he revealed that editing and mixing on the film was finally finished. And with a May 23rd release already set for France, the film’s appearance at Cannes feels like a fait accompli from our vantage point.

Cosmopolis” (dir. David Cronenberg)

Cast: Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, Jay Baruchel, Sarah Gadon

Before the end of the year, David Cronenberg told us that he was finishing the sound mix for the film, which means it’s nearing the finish line. Meanwhile, producerGregoire Melin recently told Cineuropa he is “counting on” the film showing up on the Croisette. Additionally, “Cosmopolis” is a co-production between French and Canadian backers, so we presume we’re looking at Cannes premiere, followed by a TIFF bow before rolling into theaters this fall. Cronenberg is a regular at the festival but hasn’t been there in a decade since “Spider,” so we’re sure they’re going to want him back.

“Snow White And The Huntsman” (dir. Rupert Sanders)

Cast: Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth

Again, Cannes is no stranger to hosting blockbusters and the last two years have seen summer movies “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “Robin Hood” unspool in the south of France. Will “Snow White And The Huntsman” fill that slot this year? With the film set to open on June 1st (just a few days after Cannes closes) the timing seems right, and a splashy premiere would be a nice final topping on what is already a steady publicity machine behind the pic.
