Amy Adams could play the female lead in Tom Cruise’s big screen musical Rock Of Ages .

The comely redhead, who also lent her vocals to Disney's charming Enchanted , is apparently being “heavily courted” by director Adam Shankman ( Hairspray ) for the film.

If she signed on, Adams would play a ruthless journalist who is intending to write a no-holds-barred expose on rock star Stacee Jax (Cruise), but sleeps with him instead.

Apparently Anne Hathaway was originally offered the role, but her commitment to The Dark Knight Rises meant she had to pass.

One person who’s definitely signed on is the awesome Paul Giamatti, who will play Jax's manager.

Rock Of Ages opens 1 June, 2012.
