Contest: ‘Neon Angel: A Memoir Of A Runaway’ Book
  |  @   |  

The Runaways, which stars of Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning at Cherie Currie, is based on Currie’s autobiography Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway, so to celebrate the film’s wide release in theaters this weekend, we here at Geeks of Doom have five (5) copies to give away to some lucky readers!

Five (5) winners will each receive:

  • One (1) copy of Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway

I’ve read the book and trust me, it’s a good one. Currie talks about her upbringing and then goes into detail about her time with The Runaways, which was an all-girl teenage rock band in the 1970s and if you see the movie (which I suggest you do), you’ll see how just how hard these young girls had it and what they did for rock and roll. Currie’s original version of the autobiography has been out of print since the 1990s, but thanks to It Books, the book is not only back in print, but has also been improved upon. I now only three copies of this book (2 of the original; one of the new version), so yeah, I’m lovin’ this contest. So, enter to win!!!

Kristen Stewart To Play Joan Jett in ‘Runaways’ Movie
  |  @   |  

Twilight star Kristen Stewart has been tapped to play rock queen Joan Jett in The Runaways, a music biopic based Jett’s 1970’s all-girl band.

The film is scheduled to begin production in 2009, but will have to accommodate Stewart’s commitments to the two Twilight sequels, the first of which — New Moon — expected to start shooting in early 2009.

The story will follow Jett and singer Cherie Currie‘s rise to stardom as teenage rock stars in The Runaways and all the debauchery and disillusionment that came with it, which eventually led to their disbanding.

As previously reported, Jett will executive produce, while Floria Sigismondi , who wrote the script based on Currie’s memoirs, will direct. The initial report noted that the script was adapted from Currie’s unpublished memoirs, but the singer did pen an autobiography in the late 1980’s titled Neon Angel: The Cherie Currie Story, and this film was originally to be titled Neon Angels.
