First Official Look at Catherine Zeta-Jones in 'Rock of Ages'


The Velma Kelly of 'Chicago' plays the upcoming musical movie's villain who wants to shut down rock 'n roll in Los Angeles.

Adam Shankman has shared a new sneak peek to his new film "Rock of Ages". The director tweeted a picture of Catherine Zeta-Jones wearing a pink jacket and pearls while standing in the front row of what looks like a campaign to stop "evil rock singer".

In describing Zeta-Jones' villainous character, Shankman said "if Tipper Gore and Anita Bryant had a love child," her character would be the exact reflection. He added, "She is this hardcore, moral majority, arch-conservative who wants to shut down rock 'n roll in the great city of Los Angeles." The character was specifically created for the movie to "streamline the stories".

Based on a Broadway musical of the same title, "Rock of Ages" follows a small-town girl (Julianne Hough) who comes to Hollywood for the 1980s music scene just as a legendary Hollywood venue is facing its demise. She falls for a budding musician named Drew (Diego Boneta), but also catches the eye of Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise), an arrogant rocker at the height of his career.

Joining the star-studded cast ensemble are Malin Akerman, Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige, Paul Giamatti, Will Forte and many others. The drama musical film is slated for June 1, 2012 release in the U.S.
