Julianne Hough went to see the musical Rock of Ages last month at the Pantages Theatre and it looks like it might have been for research.

It's just been announced that the former "Dancing with the Stars" dancer is in final negotiations to star alongside Tom Cruise in New Line's adaptation of the hit Broadway musical.

Rock of Ages tells the story, replete with hair-band music, of a small town girl who comes to Hollywood for the 1980s music scene and is nearly destroyed by it. Hough will play Sherrie, the small-town girl who catches the eye of Cruise, who will play the arrogant and charming star at the top of his career.

Mary J Blige is also starring and Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand are also in negotiations.

Production is shooting for a May start date.
