Get ready for one of the most mind-boggling sights you’re ever going to see – yes, Tom Cruise with a mullet!

At least we’re hoping mullet obligations will be included in Cruise’s contract for musical adap Rock Of Ages , which he’s just signed this weekend.

Cruise has been negotiating to star in the movie version of the '80s-set stage musical for months now, but finally director Adam Shankman has confirmed he’s signed on the dotted line.

Tweeting on Saturday, Shankman (who also directed Hairspray ) revealed that Alec Baldwin, Mary J. Blige and Julianna Hough have also joined the movie. He wrote:

“Can't wait to start #rockofagesmovie. Julianne Hough, alec Baldwin, Mary j Blige, Tom cruise confirmed. I love my cast. More to come.”

Those “more” could include the rumoured likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Russell Brand and Anne Hathaway. Looks like we’re going to have to start practicing our head-banging soon...
