Living Things to play The Ramones in Runaways Movie
Living Things are about to appear as one of their hero bands, the Ramones in the now-filming The Runaways, the biopic about the groundbreaking 70’s all-girl hard rock group led by Joan Jett. Kristen Stewart of Twilight fame plays Jett, with Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie and Academy Award-nominated actor Michael Shannon as the band’s “Svengali” Kim Fowley.
“I love Joey Ramone,” said Lillian Berlin of Living Things. “He is like the Elvis of punk. It’s a mystical, exotic vacation to step into his shoes for a moment.”
The movie “The Runaways” will hit theaters in 2010.
