Casting: Rock, Piranha 3DD, Freelancers

Rock of Ages
Malin Akerman (“Watchmen”) has scored the last major role in the Adam Shankman-directed Broadway musical film adaptation “Rock of Ages” for Warner Bros. Pictures says Vulture.

Akerman will portray Constance, an aggressive music journalist who is hell-bent on writing an expose on rocker Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise), then ends up having an affair with him.

Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams turned down the role after signing on for “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Man of Steel” respectively. Shooting kicks off next month in Florida.

Piranha 3DD
Christopher Lloyd, Ving Rhames and Paul Scheer have all signed on to join the cast of “Piranha 3DD” reports Yahoo.

The trio all starred in last year’s “Piranha 3D” and will be reprising their roles here of the scientist Mr. Goodman, Deputy Fallon and cameraman Andrew ‘Drew’ Cunningham respectively.

Dana Delany has joined the indie crime drama “Freelancers” for Cheetah Vision and Emmett Furla Films reports Variety.

Robert De Niro, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Beau Garrett also star in the story of the son of a murdered police officer who has succumbed to the “culture of corruption” that’s infected the force.

Delany will play a woman from his past. Jessy Terrero directs from a script by L. Philippe Casseus.
