Tom Cruise and Gwyneth Paltrow may join Rock of Ages
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Tom Cruise is in negotiations and Gwyneth Paltrow has been offered (but has not accepted yet) a roll in the upcoming Adam Shankman film ROCK OF AGES. The film (or musical) is about a young couple who’s story (meeting to falling in love and trying to stay together) is told through 1980’s hits. The film is based on the Broadway musical of the same name and has done extremely well in that format. No word on when filming will begin but it does look like some big stars are interested.
Hooray for the musical revival! I’m not particularly a fan of Shankman’s choices for revivals (HAIRSPRAY) but I do love a good musical and will check it out, especially if it has Tom Cruise attached. I’ve also heard rumblings about what an awesome singer Paltrow is, but since I have yet to see COUNTRY STRONG or her Glee episode, I just can’t form an opinion right now. I’ll be sure to let you know what I think when I’m caught up on all my watching.
