Adam Shankman wants Anne Hathaway to pair up with Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Director Adam Shankman seems to already have Tom Cruise in the bag for his upcoming musical ROCK OF AGES, and now he wants to add Oscar hostess Anne Hathaway to the mix as well. He and the studio are in talks to have Hathaway board the 80’s rock musical and play a journalist who is on a mission to expose Stacee Jaxx (Cruise) and ruin his career. Whilst doing her investigative reporting, she ends up doing a duet with Jaxx to the Foreigner song “I Want to Know What Love Is” before she concedes to his charms in the boudoir. There’s still no confirmation, but Hathaway would be crazy not to jump on this opportunity. ROCK OF AGES is set to start shooting in May.
Ugh! This cast just keeps getting better and better. I’m sold and can’t wait to see it and hope Shankman can secure Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin.
