Tom Cruise in negotiations to star in Rock of Ages
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
We posted late last year that Tom Cruise was circling the Adam Shankman project ROCK OF AGES, and he just needed to tweak the script a bit before signing on, and it looks like he’s a go. It’s been reported that Cruise is in final negotiations to star as Stacee Jaxx in the upcoming musical. There is a chance that it could fall through but it would be doubtful. Stacee Jaxx is an arrogant singer at the height of his career and will belt out Jon Bon Jovi’s hit “Wanted Dead or Alive”. Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand are still mulling over whether or not to sign on, but adding Tom Cruise to your cast will probably help seal those deals soon. Shooting is supposed to begin this May.
I think this is…AWESOME! Who wouldn’t love to see Tom Cruise in a musical? I’d like to thank Baz Luhrmann for making the musical genre cool again.
