If she signs on, Anne Hathaway will play a journalist who is writing a revealing article on Tom Cruise's character, Stacee Jaxx. Along the way, she ends up falling for the aging rock star. Both Tom Cruise and Anne Hathaway will perform a duet of the Foreigner song, I Want To Know What Love Is in the musical.
The biggest hurdle standing in the way of Anne Hathaway signing on is her role in The Dark Knight Rises as Selina Kyle/Catwoman. Both The Dark Knight Rises and Rock of Ages will be filming around the same time and scheduling issues need to be resolved before Anne Hathaway can sign on.
