Jersey Boys Film to Hold Open Call

As previously reported, the hit musical that has been wowing Broadway audiences for almost seven years will be getting the Hollywood treatment.  The movie, which is tentatively slated to be released in 2014, is to be directed by Jon Favreau, best known for directing the Christmas film Elf and the two Iron Man movies.  The upcoming film will be holding an open casting call to cast its four leading men.  For information on the casting notice, check out: .

The show won the Best Musical Tony in 2006, and tells the story of the meteoric rise to fame of four boys from the great state of New Jersey who, in the early 1960's, became famous as the Four Seasons.  Also included in the story are the various gambling debts they incurred and their discovery of the girl group The Angels.  The show includes the group's hit songs Walk Like A Man, Sherry, December 1963 (Oh What a Night), Working My Way Back to You, and Big Girls Don't Cry.  No casting or other production staff, including the screen writer, have been announced.
