From today’s USA Weekend Who’s News column, a reader wants to know if Jersey Boys will become a movie.
Q: Are there any plans to make the Broadway hit Jersey Boys, about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, into a movie?
A: There are plenty of rumors — some have Harvey Weinstein, Steven Spielberg or Tom Hanks eyeing the project — but no deals yet. Of course, if the show, which won a Tony in 2006 for Best Musical, is made into a movie, the lead role will be plum. John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony for best actor in a musical and created the role for Broadway, should be first in line.
