Joan Jett to Star in 1980s Indie Teen Comedy


Not content to sit back and be a legendary voice on the radio ("I love rock 'n roll/ So put another dime in the juke box, baby!"), Joan Jett is currently signed on to make some appearances on the big screen. Most notably she has just agreed to star in Endless Bummer (clearly a play on the title of the 1966 surfing documentary The Endless Summer), a story that "centers on the theft of a surfboard from a Ventura beach in the summer of 1984, leading its anguished owner and his misfit friends to drive to the San Fernando Valley to recover it."

I can't wait for this. A comedy — especially an indie movie — set in the 1980s has a lot of potential for fun, kitschy references and, of course, a killer soundtrack. In fact, according to Variety, the soundtrack will apparently "include modern renditions of '80s tunes recorded by Vans Warped Tour artists, who have included Joan Jett and the Blackhearts."

Radical.
