“Rock of Ages,” the touring Broadway musical inspired by 80s rock music, is coming to the silver screen next summer. Even though the musical only opened on Broadway back in 2009, a film adaptation is already set to debut in 2012.
Maybe I’m biased, but the “Rock of Ages” Broadway show has already received killer press to build up the film, a new rockin’ cast and a sizzling hot soundtrack. Though I can’t tell if the director really chose this cast based on true talent or just star appeal. For instance, I’m not sure if Tom Cruise can play a failed, drug addicted rocker, or if Alec Baldwin can play a long-haired hippie bar owner. I’m sure we’ll find out in due time.
