Jersey Boys to Hit the Big Screen


After a heated battle for the rights to the film, GK Films will make a Jersey Boys movie. Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, who wrote the musical’s book, will write the script for the project. The show — which details how Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons rose from their blue-collar roots to become American pop stars — won four Tonys, including Best Musical, after it opened in 2005.
