No “Rock of Ages” to Amy
Adam Shankman has tweeted that he got Russell Brand to play Lonny in the New Line musical Rock of Ages. But Shankman’s pursuit of Amy Adams didn’t work out. He wanted her to play the role of the journalist who duets and then beds down with Tom Cruise’s decadent rock star character Stacee Jaxx, but Adams’ schedule was complicated by landing the Lois Lane role in the Superman film Man of Steel. Shankman’s still looking.
