Michael Sucsy has scored a significant hit with The Vow after cutting his teeth as the helmer of the award-winning TV movie, Grey Gardens. Now he’s busy lining up his next movies. He’s already got a new take on Romeo & Juliet, called Rosaline, up his sleeve, and now Variety reports that he’s in talks to direct a jukebox musical based around the Beach Boys tunes.
Fox 2000 won a bidding war back in 2010 for the rights to the project, which comes with a script by Erin Brockovich’s Susannah Grant. Not too much is known about the plot, other that that it’ll take place during one summer in the 1960s (we could probably have guessed that).
Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who’ve helped get Chicago and Hairspray to the big screen, are the guys behind the project, and despit Sucsy’s lack of musical experience, they hope he’s the guy who can turn the Beach Boy’s music into a successful film.
