Exclusive Clip: The Runaways Rehearse to Be "Bigger Than the Beatles"

March 9, 2010 2:19 PM ET

Early peeks at The Runaways, music video vet Floria Sigismondi's biopic about the rise and fall of the iconic Seventies girl-punk band, have provided fast-and-dirty looks at the drama surrounding Joan Jett (played by Twilight star Kristen Stewart) and Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning). In Rolling Stone's latest exclusive clip, Stella Maeve as Sandy West and Stewart bang out some raw rehearsal tunes as manager Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon) listens on the other end of the phone and offers a few words of encouragement when Stewart reports they've been busy practicing: "Well, get back to it, you bitches are going to be bigger than the Beatles!"

Watch the clip above and see another preview, plus click through all our photos from the set. And don't forget to check out which songs Fanning and Stewart will be handling on the film's official soundtrack. The movie hits theaters in limited cities March 19th and opens nationally April 9th.
