An upcoming film adaptation of the 2006 Chris D'Arienzo rock/jukebox Broadway musical of the same name, and is unrelated to the 2011 video game of the same name.

It tells the story of small town girl Sherrie and city boy Drew, who meet on the Sunset Strip while pursuing their Hollywood dreams. Their rock 'n' roll romance is told through the heart-pounding hits of Def Leppard, Joan Jett, Journey, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake, and more.
