The long-awaited lesbian-themed werewolf flick Jack and Diane is finally getting its premiere at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from April 18 – 29, according to Indiewire.

St. Trinian's School for Girls and Dirty Girl star Juno Temple (pictured right) stars as Diane while The Runaways’ Riley Keough (pictured left), who just happens to be Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter, plays tomboy Jack in director Bradley Rust Gray’s film that takes a “teenage lesbian love tale and twists the formula, with one of them revealing she's a werewolf,” reports Indiewire.

Jena Malone (Saved, Sucker Punch) costars along with pop diva Kylie Minogue, who plays a tattooed lesbian.

The film has undergone several casting changes before coming to fruition. At one point Ellen Page and her Juno costar Olivia Thirlby were attached before Page was replaced by Milk’s Alison Pill. At the end of the day Temple and Keough became attached to what would become the finished product.

Jack and Diane is a Magnolia Pictures release and opens in theaters June 1.
