Jersey Boys has been a big hit on Broadway and the West End, so it’s not that surprising Hollywood has been sniffing around. Now producer Graham King has set screenwriter John Logan to come up with the script for a movie version of the show, according to Variety.
The jukebox musical tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Season, who produced hits such as Walk Like A Man and Big Girls Don’t Cry.
Logan seems to have a bit of a Midas touch at the moment. He took four years off from Hollywod but came storming back in 2011 with Rango, Hugo and Coriolanus, and this year he’s got Spielberg’s Lincoln and has also worked on the new Bond movie, Skyfall.
Although Mamma Mia was a big success, it’s likely they’re going to wait to see how fellow jukebox musical Rock of Ages does this summer. If that’s makes a lot of cash, Jersey Boys will be waiting in the wings to go ahead.
