The director Adam Shankman (“Bedtime Stories,” “Hairspray”), as it turned out, nostalgic about the ’80s: he will make an adaptation of the Broadway musical “Rock of Ages” for “New Line Cinema”. Chris D’Arienzo – the creator of the original musical, will write the script. Shankman at the same time will be choreographer of the picture. Producers of picture are: Carl Levin, Matthew Weaver, Scott Prisand and Tobey Maguire.
Heroes of the musical – a man and a woman who met each other in the club “Rock of Ages” on Sunset Boulevard and fell in love. Their passions are being tested for resistance with the accompaniment of immortal rock hits of the 80′s.
“New Line Cinema” will start shooting of the new picture on next summer, and release of the film on screens is scheduled in 2011.
