Rock of AgesAdam Shankman is set to 'Rock' the big screen. The choreographer-turned filmmaker ('Hairspray') and 'So You Think You Can Dance' judge has signed on to direct and choreograph a screen version of 'Rock of Ages,' the Broadway musical that received five Tony nominations and has been filling seats since its move to the Great White Way this spring.

The musical, set in 1987 on the Sunset Strip, is an "arena rock" love story about a small town girl who meets a big city rocker in Los Angeles; the pair fall in love to the songs of Journey, Night Ranger, Styx, Reo Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Asia and Whitesnake.
