**UPDATE 3/5/11: Alec Baldwin will be joining the cast of “Rock of Ages”. He will be playing Dennis, who is the narrator in the stage musical. Adam Shankman posted a tweet on Twitter confirming Baldwin’s role in the film.**

Julianne Hough from “Dancing with the Stars” will be playing Sherrie Christian in the film adaptation of the stage musical “Rock of Ages”. Adam Shankman, who will be directing and choreographing the upcoming film, posted a tweet on Twitter confirming Hough as snagging the female lead. Hough can next be seen in the remake of “Footloose” which is due out in theaters in October (2011).

Other Rock of Ages’ cast members include Tom Cruise, who will be playing Stacee Jaxx (a self absorbed rocker), and Mary J. Blige who will play Justice (a gentleman’s club owner).

I must admit, I do have high hopes for this film. I really enjoyed the musical and with Adam Shankman assuming double duty (director and choreographer) as he did for the film adaptation of the stage musical “Hairspray”, it looks to be a great time at the movies.
