Production[edit]

In 2010, GK Films acquired the rights to produce a film version of the musical, with Brickman and Elice to write the script for the film.[18][19] By August 2012, Jon Favreau was engaged to direct and casting had begun.[20] In November 2012, Variety reported that Warner Bros. had dropped the film plans;[21][22] however, in May 2013, an interview with Four Seasons lead singer Frankie Valli indicated the film was still being produced and that Valli would be contributing to the casting of his character.[23] A trailer was released for the film on April 17, 2014.[24]
