Future Janis Joplin dress-up party attendee Amy Adams recently got an Academy Award nomination for her uncharacteristically serious role in The Fighter, and now rumor has it that she's following it up in the most logical way possible: A musical comedy with Tom Cruise. Adam Shankman, the movie's director, is reportedly courting Adams for the part he originally offered to Anne Hathaway, which she had to decline because of her duties as Catwoman. Here's some info on the part:
"She would play an uptight journalist who intends to eviscerate Stacee Jax with an expose. A seduction ensues instead, and after they duet to the Foreigner song I Want To Know What Love Is, nature takes its course."

If this solidifies, Adams would be co-starring with Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige, Alec Baldwin, and Russell Brand. So if you like the idea of seeing those people singing 80s pop tunes, get excited. (via Deadline)
