::Team Bella:: Kristen Stewart in 'The Runaways' set to release.

Kristen Stewart will be back on the red-carpet promoting her new film The Runaways that opens in theaters on March 19th.

In this film Kristen plays the part of rock 'n roll icon Joan Jett. Kristen's co-stars include Dakota Fanning, Danielle Riley Keough, Scout Taylor-Compton and Michael Shannon

The Runaways is based on lead-singer Cherie Currie's book 'Neon Angel' It tells of her experiences as a rock star, but also delivering a strong anti-drug warning to it's readers.

The movie chronicles The Runaways from 1975 - 1977. The band was formed by teenage girls all under the age of 16, living near Hollywood, CA., and heavily manipulated by their manager Kim Fowley. The band ultimately succeeds on their own merits as musicians, becoming the first all-girl rock-band to ever break into the world of arena-filling hard rock acts.

Kristen cut her Bella Swan long locks to sport the mullet for her part in the film.
