Opening in theaters on June 15th is the big screen adaptation of the smash hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages, which was directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray). The film truly features an all-star cast that includes Julianne Hough (Footloose), Diego Boneta (Mean Girls 2), Russell Brand (Arthur), Alec Baldwin (TV's 30 Rock), Bryan Cranston (Drive), Paul Giamatti (Sideways), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Will Forte (MacGruber), Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago), singer Mary J. Blige, and international superstar Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol).
Rock of Ages tells the story of small town girl Sherrie (Hough) and city boy Drew (Boneta), who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Much like the musical, the film features rock 'n' roll hits of the era from such legendary artists as Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, and White Snake.
Last summer, I had the pleasure of flying to Miami, Florida (along with several other members of the press) to visit the set of Rock of Ages and talk with some of the cast and crew. While on the set, which was a recreation of the famous Sunset Strip circa the '1980s, I had a chance to speak with director Adam Shankman, and actors Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta, as well as witness filming, and even get a sneak peek of Tom Cruise singing Def Leppard's classic song "Pour Some Sugar On Me."
