Anne Hathaway to join Cruise in Rock of Ages?

February 14th, 2011

Anne Hathaway is set to star alongside Tom Cruise in 'Rock of Ages'.

Director Adam Shankman is said to be interested in casting the 28-year-old actress in the big screen adaptation of the musical, which is based on 80s rock hits, alongside Tom - who will play rock star Stacee Jax.

If she signs up, Anne will portray a journalist who seeks to ruin Stacee's career with a damning expose - but instead ends up falling for his charms.

The brunette beauty would also have to sing in the film as the role requires her to duet with Tom's character on a rendition of Foreigner's 'I Want To Know What Love Is'.

However, Anne's decision on accepting the role will depend on whether the shooting schedule for new Batman movie 'The Dark Knight Rises' - in which she plays Catwoman - will allow it, as both projects are due to be filmed around the same time.

Alec Baldwin has been confirmed for 'Rock of Ages' and will play

Dennis, the owner of rock club The Bourbon, while Russell Brand is said to be in the running for the role of Lonny, the manager of The Bourbon.
