Second only to "Hunger Games" with endless casting announcements, director Adam Shankman hasn't been able to stay off Twitter or turn down interview requests for "Rock Of Ages," his big haired '80s musical movie which seems to have been casting forever. But it looks like he's lost a cast member instead of adding one.

Justin Theroux Rewriting Script With Director Adam ShankmanIt's always satisfying when someone finds success later in life, having worked quietly for years, and we're delighted that the latest actor to follow that path is Bryan Cranston.

Ok, she did make the rom-com "The Rebound" with Justin Bartha a few years back but that film is still trying to find a buyer, but a big role in the upcoming "Rock of Ages" might get fresh interest in that title which is currently sitting on a shelf.

Things aren't in a good place right now for Universal's "Snow White And The Huntsman." Their competitors over at Relativity already have Julia Roberts and Lily Collins ready to go in the Tarsem directed Snow White movie that's going to hit theaters on June 29, 2012—six months before Universal's entry. With Viggo Mortensen already having moved on, last week it was reported that the studio was talking to the now available Hugh Jackman to take on the part, but it appears those efforts have gone unrewarded.
