Tom Cruise In Final Negotiations For ROCK OF AGES
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tom Cruise’s involvement to co-star in New Line’s ROCK OF AGES is nearing the stages of official confirmation. The actor is reportedly in final negotiations to star in the adaptation of the hit stage musical, which centers on the life of 1980s rockers. Adam Shankman will direct the film and a script will be penned by Chris D’Arienzo.
Since October, Cruise’s name has been circling the rumor mill for this film. He will co-star as Stacee Jaxx, a charming star at the top of his career. As of now, Cruise is the only cast member close to confirmation on the project. Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand are said to be in consideration for lead roles, but no deals have officially been made at this time.
Rock of Ages, which had a strong run as a stage musical on Broadway and recently closed in January, is hoping for a production start date of May.
