The announcement is bad news for former American Idol alum Constantine Maroulis, who played the role of on Broadway. He told THR he wanted to be considered for the big screen version. “Obviously, I feel like this is my part and I've done all the work and I feel like I've done a lot to bring the show to this sort of level of success," he said. "I'm not 21, but I'm an actor, and I think there's actors in every movie that are playing different ages and different times and different things all the time, and it's really about the believability of the performance. So come and see me in the show, read the reviews, read everything, and tell me that this isn't a part that I was born to play and there you have it.”
As THR previously reported, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Mary J. Blige are confirmed to star.
Warner Bros Pictures is handling distribution.
