New Line Acquires "Rock of Ages" Musical

Posted: December 10th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
New Line Acquires "Rock of Ages" MusicalSubmit Comment
New Line has won an auction for screen rights to "Rock of Ages," a stage musical that does with '80s rock anthems what "Mamma Mia!" did with Abba tunes. Chris D'Arienzo, who wrote the book for the Off Broadway tuner, will write the screenplay and direct the film.

The storyline takes place at a Sunset Strip rock club called Rock of Ages, where a man and woman fall in love but get torn apart by the rock lifestyle.

The show is propelled by signature '80s rock anthems popularized by Journey, Twisted Sister, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar, Foreigner, Bon Jovi and REO Speedwagon.

The "Rock of Ages" deal comes after Universal acquired the Tony-winning Broadway musical "In the Heights." It becomes the second big musical project for New Line, which is developing a sequel to "Hairspray."

I saw these guys perform on Conan, and besides the good music (of course) and hot chicks hahah....it sucked, I dunno if it was the millionth time they did it that night, but their broadway voices just couldnt stand up to the classic artists (meaning, some of the notes were waaayyyy off!) Not trying to dis anyone who enjoys this show, its just my opinion, but ill guess ill still wait for someone to rant/yell at my opinion...
