Alessandra Torresani Joins Stewart And Fanning in ‘The Runaways’
Looks like the reunion we always wanted.
Alessandra Torresani has been confirmed for the final member of the The Runaways as metal pioneer Lita Ford in what is sure to be a bad girl train wreck when she collides with Kristen Stewart (fulfilling the role of rock legend Joan Jett) and Dakota Fanning (on keyboards as Cherie Currie) in this highly anticipated bio-pic about the groundbreaking 1970s girl band of the same name.
The now highly celebrated group rocked it hard and fast in the second half of the 70s, sharing a piece of the punk crown for a brief time and doing it as the first all-girl group that ever held the spotlight.
After dissolving in 1979, Ford began a solo career that resulted in greater success that saw several big hits and eventually a teaming-up with Ozzy Osbourne himself for the ballad “Close My Eyes Forever”.
The 22-year-old Torresani must know that she has a lot to live up to when the filming starts next week. For starters, how
about learning to play guitar?
“I learn the guitar starting [Monday], so that’ll be interesting,” she said at the Young Hollywood Awards on Sunday.
She primarily has guest starred on shows like Bones, E.R., Malcolm in the Middle, and The Sarah Connor Chronicles. This film marks
a positive turn for her career, and Torresani knows it.
“There’s some kick-ass girls in the movie, right? It’s going to be great.”
