Warner Bros. just released a new video straight from New Line Cinema's upcoming musical film Rock of Ages. The Music video features the track "Anyway you want it" as performed by Mary J. Blige and Julianne Hough. Watch the exciting preview to find out how will this musical will feel like.
Directed by “Hairspray’s” Adam Shankman, “Rock of Ages” tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock ‘n’ roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake, and more.As an added treat, Constantine Maroulis' (Drew Boley in Broadway version) cameo is also confirmed and in fact he is listed on the track recording as one of the performers of the song you just heard. So how's that for the Broadway junkies out there. I just hope the cameo is not that bad. I remember when Ricki Lake did appeared in Hairspray, it is quite a very long cameo appearance and I expect that Shankman will do the same with Maroulis.
The movie musical stars Julianne Hough (“Burlesque”), with actor/singer Diego Boneta in his feature film debut, Russell Brand (“Arthur”), Oscar® nominee Paul Giamatti (“Cinderella Man”), Academy Award® winner Catherine Zeta-Jones (“Chicago”), Malin Akerman (“The Proposal”) and R&B queen Mary J. Blige, with Oscar® nominees Alec Baldwin (“The Cooler”) and Tom Cruise as Stacee Jaxx.
Shankman directs “Rock of Ages” from a screenplay by Justin Theroux and Chris D’Arienzo and Allan Loeb, based on D’Arienzo’s musical of the same name.
Opening across the Philippines in June 14, 2012, “Rock of Ages” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
