In 2006, before Real Housewives and even before Jersey Shore, some people associated New Jersey with the Broadway play Jersey Boys, which won the Tony for Best Play that year.
While there's nothing wrong with being associated with alcoholism and spray tans, we're sure that the Garden State will be happy to gain all the wonderful associations that come with this play, such as phenomenal music
and crime and adultery.
The play tells the story of how Frankie Valli and his crew became an American pop sensation before they even turned 30.
GK Films reportedly acquired the rights to the former Broadway play for a substantial seven figures!
Heres' what Graham King of GK Films had to say about the project:
"Jersey Boys is one of the most electrifying stage shows any of us has ever seen and it has all the ingredients to become a big commercial hit movie. So to now be collaborating with the whole team, Frankie, Bob, Marshall and Rick, to bring that magic to the big screen is just a wonderful dream come true."
We'll be excited to see how this film progresses. Should be inneresting to see who they cast as 'the boys.'
Are U looking forward to a Jersey Boys movie?
