Tom Cruise has reportedly signed to star in the forthcoming movie version of Rock of Ages.

Adam Shankman, the project's director, confirmed that Cruise would star in the film as rock star Stacee Jaxx, reports Coming Soon.

The New Line/Warner Bros project is based on a theatre production of the same name.

The film will feature a number of 1980s rock anthems, including Bon Jovi's 'Wanted Dead or Alive'.

Rock of Ages is expected for release later this year.
