Knocked Up actor Seth Rogen is in chats to play Lonny in the forthcoming film adaptation of the colorful stage musical Rock of Ages, BroadwayWorld.com scooped on Wednesday.
It seems Seth is already completing a bit of research for his role. The Green Hornet actor attended the Toronto production of the show on July 17, telling fellow theatergoers that “he was just there to enjoy the show.”
Rock of Ages — based on the five-time Tony-nominated Broadway musical — chronicles the romance between two rock fans who find love on Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip in 1987. The musical is backed by a soundtrack of rock anthems of the 1980s.
The film — directed by producer/choreographer Adam Shankman — is expected to go into production later this year.
Rock of Ages will dance its way into theaters next summer.
