Catherine Zeta-Jones appears to be channeling her very best Michele Bachmann impression as she she portrays a conservative mayor’s wife in the upcoming film, ROCK OF AGES, based on the highly successful stage musical. Jones’ character is anti-rock music and seeks to ban rock music from the city of Los Angeles in the film which features music by Pat Benator, Journey, Quarterflash, Twisted Sister and many other popular late 70’s -80’s rock acts. The film version of the musical is currently in production and is scheduled for a tentative June 2012 release date.
Russell Brand, Tom Cruise, Paul Giamatti and Mary J. Blige also co-star in this upcoming film as well. It was just announced that Will Forte from SNL will also join the cast as well.
The film should be highly anticipated and a major release with a soundtrack album and other marketing. Production is set to continue on this film which began work in May.
