Jersey Boys - Broadway hit to hit the big screen

From Deadline:

Graham King's GK Films has won a spirited auction for feature film rights to the Broadway musical Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons. Book writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice will write the script. King and GK Films partner Tim Headington will produce.

The play tells the story of how Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi went from blue-collar wrong side of the track origins to become an American pop sensation, selling 175 million records worldwide before they were 30 years old. The play has done over $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales since its 2005 Broadway opening, when it was directed by Des McAnuff and produced by Dodger Theatricals. It won four Tony Awards, including Best Musical and the cast album won the Grammy. When it transplanted to London, Jersey Boys won the 2009 Olivier Award for Best Musical.

  1. I would love to see this movie. I certainly don't get to see too many stage shows! I hope they use real singers and not just famous actors that "try" to sing (like Mamma Mia).

  2. I saw this cast in London last year. It was wonderful. Hopefully they will try and use the theater cast as opposed to "famous" actors.

  3. phylly and Holly, I agree! I hope (and assume) that they will cast talented singers and not just famous names. Sounds like the producers are huge fans and will do it justice?
