Tom Cruise officially signs onto Rock of Ages
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
I’m hesitant to even call this news since it’s been speculated for so long, but just so we’re all on the same page- it has been confirmed that Tom Cruise will be joining the musical ROCK OF AGES. Producer and director Adam Shankman confirmed on the red carpet last night that Tom Cruise would portray Stacee Jaxx in the musical. Jaxx is a recording artist at the peak of his career and his big moment in the film will be belting out Jon Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive”. ROCK OF AGES is set to start shooting in May.
Seems like Shankman’s film is starting to come together. Last night during the awards ceremony we got to see Anne Hathaway belt out a song, which I don’t know if she has done previously in any of her films, and she’s wasn’t bad at all. I’d like to see he join this film as well but she’s busy these days, you know, playing Catwoman and all in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.
