Alec Baldwin will join Tom Cruise in the musical Rock of Ages

Adam Shankman’s next musical ROCK OF AGES is gathering quite the cast. Last week we had confirmation that Tom Cruise and Mary J. Blige were definitely on board, Julianne Hough was in final negotiations and now confirmed and today we find out that Alec Baldwin has committed to the film as well. The story follows a rock club on Sunset Blvd. called Rock of Ages that is the backdrop for a love story and lots of 80’s musical interludes. Shooting will begin in less that three months and we’ll be looking for a 2012 release.
In my opinion, Alec Baldwin just makes this cast so much better and if Russell Brand confirms too that would be just great. I think we still need to find out who is replacing the journalist role which had Anne Hathaway rumored for awhile and then possibly casting is complete. Still can’t wait to see Tom Cruise belt out a song.
