Los Angeles: Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays an out-of-luck country singer in her latest film `Country Song`, has been offered another musical `Rock of Ages`.

The actress plans to read the script before taking the role but is excited about the "fun" project, reported Entertainment Weekly online.

The movie is a big screen adaptation of the Broadway play of the same title.

"It sounds cool. I just got the script and I will read it on the plane home tomorrow," she said.

Producer Jenno Topping has already confirmed that Tom Cruise is "in discussions" for a role in `Rock of Ages`.

"It`s real. Although, it is not cemented," he added. The musical will be directed by `Hairspray` helmer Adam Shankman. Chris D`Arienzo provides the script for the film, that follows a young rocker hungry for his big break and a small town girl who both land on the LA rock scene just as a legendary Hollywood venue is facing its demise.
