“Jersey Boys” doo-wopping their way to the big screen


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Following in the tap-dancing footsteps of “Chicago,” “Hairspray” and countless other stage-to-screen adaptations, the smash Broadway sensation “Jersey Boys” will make the leap to movie theaters.

Graham King’s GK Films acquired film rights to the show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The Tony Award-winner documents the rise and fall of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, the famous pop and rock group who surged to the top of the charts in the 1950s and ‘60s with such hits as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man.”

Valli and Bob Gaudio, the keyboardist for the Four Seasons, are on board as executive producers for the film adaptation.

Expect these to be coveted roles for young actor-singers. And with the success of “Glee” and the continued influence of “American Idol” on our entertainment options, I think we can bank on “Jersey Boys” being a strong draw when it finally reaches the big screen.

We’ll have more details on the movie as they develop.
