Relax, Everybody; K-Stew and Dakota Fanning Are Totally Gonna Sing on ‘The Runaways’ Soundtrack

Celebuzz / March 3, 2010

Been itching to hear Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning apply their golden throats in a musical setting? Today’s your lucky day!

It’s been confirmed that the co-stars of the Joan Jett biopic The Runaways will contribute four songs to the movie’s soundtrack. The two will duet on the Runaways songs “Queens of Noise” and “Dead End Justice,” while Fanning—who plays the group’s lead singer Cherie Currie in the film—will belt out “Cherry Bomb” and “California Paradise” solo. The soundtrack will further be fleshed out by songs from David Bowie, MC5, The Stooges and The Sex Pistols.

Since this is the first time that either actress has contributed to a movie soundtrack, it remains to be seen whether their singing chops will match their acting prowess, but share your thoughts in the comments section anyway: Do you think K-Stew and D-Fan can pull off the whole singing thing?
