Rock of Ages on Broadway

Rock of Ages, the Broadway musical set in late-80s Los Angeles’ fast-fizzling punk rock, heavy and hair metal subcultures, is being adapted into a movie.

According to Variety, Adam Shankman—who directed the recent Hairspray musical adaptation—has signed on to choreograph and direct the new movie, which will come out in 2011. Hopefully the transition from 60s doo-wop to 80s rock won’t be too tough for Shankman. No casting announcements have been made yet, but obviously someone should be giving Jack Black a call at some point. (Culture Monster)
