Russell Brand

Break out the hairspray and leg warmers: another Broadway hit is making its way to the big screen – 80’s style.  Better than the bad fashion is the off-the-wall cast currently connected to the project.  As rumor tells it, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, and Tom Cruise are all being considered for parts in Rock of Ages.

Adam Shankman, who will be directing and choreographing the new movie, refers to Rock of Ages as Mamma Mia! for dudes.”

It’s a story about a couple who meet at a Sunset Strip club, fall in love, and try to maintain their relationship despite all of the sex, drugs and of course, 80’s rock.  Like Mamma Mia, the songs are a collection of outside hits, including tunes by Journey, Pat Benatar, and Poison (then led by the now-infamous Bret Michaels).

British actor and comedian Russell Brand is rumored to play Lonny, the 80s rock club employee and narrator who works for owner Dennis, a role Alec Baldwin may fill.  Baldwin and Brand’s would be slated to sing a duet of REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling.”

Tom Cruise may be another big name on the list of cast members.  According to Deadline, Cruise is close to signing a deal to play rocker Stacee Jax, which will earn him a solo of Bon Jovi’s “Wanted Dead or Alive.”

Rock of Ages will hit theaters in 2012.
